In our everyday life, we use postures to express our demands, intentions, expectations, emotions, and more. However, once the teleonomy in a posture is removed, what remains? While looking at the poses of these bodies, familiar or unfamiliar, what sort of association occurs to us? What kind of memory does it evoke? In the video work, various human profiles and postures appear within a surreal scene of Cheng-Nan. It attempts to show how Hakka people strived to adapt to the external changes, as well as the bilateral influences between humans and the environment.
