A film and virtual reality experience, first inspired by chapter from Roland Barthes' “A lover's discourse: Fragments”. Using stop motion organic characters and set design inspired by marine biology, the story consists of two separate philosophical ideas; the concept of “Assemblage” by Deleuze & Guattari, and the concept of “Plissement” by Merleau-Ponty.
Film in izkušnja virtualne realnosti, ki ga je prvotno navdihnilo poglavje romana Rolanda Barthesa ''Fragmenti ljubezenskega diskurza''. V filmu so uporabljeni organski stop animacijski liki in scena oblikovana po navdihu morske biologije, zgodba pa je sestavljena iz dveh ločenih filozofskih idej iz Deleuzejevega & Guattarijevega koncepta ''asemblaže'', ter Merleau-Pontyjevega koncepta ''gubanja''.

Originally from Taiwan, I began as a fine artist investigating realism in painting and drawing. My work has evolved into multimedia works examining the existence of matter and the tension between the perceived "surface layer" and an imagined "flowing underlying layer". I examine this tension in diverse subject matter utilizing collage physical everyday objects and organic textures.
