PHASE II
IMAGINARY STAGE
The second part of thesis work is a series of exploratory experimental films. They are the reflection of the previous stage analysis diagrams. Further questioning the co-authorship between user and designer. We act differently when we encounter with different people and situations, and now days we act in certain way when we facing different devices and apps. Designers behind these devices and apps are shaping our behaviors and actions. Nevertheless, compare to the past, users are looking for more participation of the entire experience rather than just receiving it passively.  

For each video, screen devices are primarily considered as the “instrument” and masked human figures are the “soloist”. Each film featured a subtle narrative between control and being controlled. Is the gesture of the human controlled what’s happening on screen? Or it is what’s happening on screen control the human gesture?
