Senkaku Islands / Diaoyu Islands Belong to Birds & Fishes 釣魚臺/尖閣列島是屬於鳥和魚的
Everyone has heard of Senkaku /Diaoyu Islands but most of us might not even aware of its exact location, and only a handful of us have actually physically been there. How much do we really know about this place remains very little yet nationalism from both sides has fueled the mind of the people with images and ideas about this faraway lands.
The islands has transformed from the home for birds and fishes into the symbol of political desire, power, and control. The installation inside this room was inspired by media control center from the military suggesting the media are being manipulated and there is always a secret observer hidden behind the struggle between two species. The videos were inspired by actual elements that could be found on Senkaku Islands; birds, fishes, lighthouse, etc. triggering our imagination towards this faraway land of utopia.
