Wayward Cloud

Video / Photography


Wayward Cloud is a video piece inspired by Tsai Ming-Liang's movie 天邊一朵雲 (The Wayward Cloud). The originial storyline follows the lives of two characters living in an extreme water shortage in Taiwan. In response, media programs begin teaching Taiwan's residents the second-best alternative, watermelons. This is a homage and conceptual piece that asks the viewer to think about our environment and consumption. Slowing down to the pace of the video, the viewer counters the fleeting speed of the world in which we live. Casting: Hoi Leung.
