This is a film in which I portrait 8 people who cross lives.The characters have never met each other before.Through a few photo's given by a stranger,they fabricate the memory of how they unconsciously met.

I select 4 portraits of women from my life before residency. Until arrive LA, I select 4 local women and let them choose one picture of these photos. She makes a hypothetical description (about her career, habits, favorite foods, her life ,etc.)for the strange Taiwan woman. The way to describe must be undoubted, like an old friend ( the described as "I remember…", not "I think …"). All interview will be recorded by video.

Until come back to Taiwan, I invite these 4 Taiwanese women to describe in same way, for the American woman who selected her. Last, I edit the two-sides interview ,let it become a dialogue across space and time.

這件作品是跨臺北和洛杉磯拍攝的影像計劃。2011我去美國駐村前,我請四位女性友人,請她們提供幾張生活照。至美國駐村後,我認識了四個美國女人,請她們個別從這從這幾張照片選其一,並對這位陌生的台灣女子,以「她們見過面,並瞭解對方」為前提,做一段假設行的敘述。待駐村結束,回台灣後,再請台灣女子,針對挑選她的美國女性,以同樣方式描述,最後將這兩邊的訪談紀錄交錯剪接,使其看起來打破時空對話。
