A suggestive camera travelling explores the space where protests took place against a trade agreement with China, which was intended to strengthen political control over Taiwan. The filmmaker leaves only devices and items that act as symptoms of a long and continuous presence and traces of the protesters´ efforts to preserve freedom.


In his work, Taiwanese videoart pioneer Yuan Goang-Ming (1965) works with critical metaphors of technology as they relate to the human mind and perception.
