Move_ 2.1 & 2.2移．動_2.1 &2.2
The video《MOVE》mainly into three parts. The creation background is I moved to one place to another place constantly since childhood, ceaselessly come and go in two or three cities. Move by subjection initiative and get away from the purpose to feel by heart. In the trip, we are often keep watched on what we did and where we gone but we can’t focus some of the real feeling by heart and the apparent angle is hidden from careless.
The video《MOVE》Part 2.1 is during my growth, I leave form my home city to other place for travel、study and live, I reflect the relationship between self and birthplace through the move.
The video《MOVE》Part 2.2 want to express is the competition by myself during the move.
