Echos of An Unverifiable World


Version 001

Enlightenment stems from an understanding of divine order, which is the flow of the cosmos. With archival material of Japanese propaganda in Indonesia during World War II, this edition attempts to capture the pulse of Japanese life, following a cosmological and sonic clue.

Version 002

Using archival material of soldiers detecting the weather/enemy, I fictionalized a soldier looking into the distance with binoculars, traveling between the past and the future, poetically meditating on youth, eternity, the politics of idealism/communism, justice yet to come, and lovers yet to meet, trying to break through the cruelty and despair of war and life.
