What if doomsday is one of us? Will she continue what she is destined to do or give us another chance? How will she decide? Do our actions on treating Mother Earth affect her decision?

This work is an experimental film about the pressure of conforming to society. Hypocristy is celebrated and there’s no room for moving and no space for breathing. Human senses may be the roots of all sins, but these senses are also the foundation of life.

The original materials for this movie include 135 film and super 8mm films. By decomposing the gelatin emulsion, these incredible images appear. I create textures sometimes with purpose and sometimes without one. Turns out, some looks like burning and some becomes virus intrusion.When the emulsion strips, looking at them, I suddenly realize my imagination on images. And they immediately disappear. Therefore it’s a farewell to “the imagination of images”. To mourn the disappearance and to see the substance of image.
