A Brief Introduction of J's Dream Universe《J的梦境宇宙简介》

My works are primarily concerned with the realm of the unconsciousness and dreams, as well as the different process to discover and articulate the hidden messages embedded in them. After further research on dreams, psychology, and psychoanalysis, I get my inspirations from some mental illness cases such as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and Schizophrenia. I constructed a story based on the three persons who came from different parallel universes but share the same identity. When one of them get into trouble, the two others have to help the one to solve the problem. I am interested in how texts, images, and sounds work together in montages as a process of remaking and reconstructing our memory bank, approximating the way our dreams work. This project challenges the traditional way of telling a story, it involved a video clip, some writings, and drawings. The audience is welcome to works as the detective who is investing in this murder case, to find out more about the story between the three persons.

我的作品的初衷师探索无意识和梦境的领域,以及各种用于发现我们内心深处隐藏着的潜意识的方法。在对梦境,心理学和精神分析进行了一些深入研究之后,我从一些精神疾病案例中获得了灵感,例如多重人格(DID)于精神分裂症。我构建了一个故事,是关于三个来自不同平行宇宙的人,但他们共享着同一个身份。他们的性格有相似的地方,也有完全不同的地方,就像是我们自身的性格也存在着许多不同的多面性。当其中一个人遇到麻烦时,另外两个人必须帮助解决问题。我感兴趣的时文本,图像和声音如何在蒙太奇中一起作为重建和重建我们的记忆库的过程,这种过程与我们的梦境的工作方式十分相像。这个作品挑战了讲述故事的传统方式,它包括一个视频,一些文字写作与绘画,这都是我提供的关于这个故事的线索。欢迎关注以一个调查这起谋杀案的侦探身份,通过这些线索去了解更多关于三人之间的故事。
