MetadataShow full metadata
Affection and Scene [情景交融] is a philosophical concept in Chinese art practice which could be understood as a conceptual thought that transcends an artist’s embodiment of their emotions and internal responses to an environment. This project seeks to creatively explore the notion of Affection and Scene through contemporary filmmaking. It asks how such an enigmatic concept can be reinterpreted through a Western narrative structure. The short film, Vitality, aims to communicate the wisdom of Eastern philosophy in a multi-cultural context, and thus extend its accessibility and possibilities for contemporary application.
