Design Statement

The project was testing the boundary when video used in the contemporary theatre. It has the changeable language between different functions. The piece "Zoo of Cards" is an allegory reflects social phenomenons. The various parts collect footage in many aspect of Taiwan.

The director first told us about his idea to collage "Tuan tuan and Yuan yuan", "House of Card" and "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar", and let the designing team develop ideas before things really happen. At the first, I choose low-tech, 8-bit looks, psy-punk and video livefeed for being my main idea. Along with the progression, the features have change to seamless one take and 2D composite with livefeed resources. We kept some low-tech looks to create the sense of ironic. And the seamless one shot helps to connect spaces in and out the theatre.

We grabbed media from daily life and transform it to the theatre language. The video altered the common footage that made audiences believe absurd themes
The screen set above the stage was the advertisement board, news channel, show trailer and programme intro. It is good to see the flexibility that video used in the project.
