Nobody Gets Hurt
VR FIlm
Spring 2021 Release

In classic American bank robbery films, the robber always hands the teller a note saying, “If everyone does what I say, nobody gets hurt.” But inevitably, in the film, as in life, mistakes happen, things don’t go as planned, and somebody does get hurt… Based on the performance that premiered at the Taipei Museum of Fine Art in 2013, this virtual reality project explores the intersections between theatre and film, dream and reality. This project is sponsored by a grant from the Taiwan Creative Content Agency.

Over the Rainbow
VR FIlm
Summer 2021 Release

It is human nature to long for something more or different than what one has. At times, this aspirational dreaming can lead to advancements: someone finds a better career, leaves an abusive relationship, or, as is the case for Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, returns home. But more often than not, this attitude leads to a sense of discontent with one’s own lot, an unquenchable desire for something new. "Over the Rainbow" explores this precarious balance between desire and satisfaction, encouraging an honest reflection on our own personal sense of identity and values. What are we searching for? Where do we call home? Are we happy? This VR experience takes the audience on a surreal journey from a theatre audition to a dark, David Lynch-inspired dreamscape to a Broadway-style musical. But "Over the Rainbow" offers more than a physical voyage; it is a trip within, an entering into of our aspirations, insecurities, and joys.
