It says, “bury” is for the deceased to find a peaceful mind place, and the place of heart returning of the departed mother has always left her daughter cruising. The abstraction of thoughts in daily life, the conjecture of mothers in different time and space, and the endless search for the dead also are indexes of a daughter's heart. Where on earth has mother gone? How does a daughter perceive a distant relative? Through the mouth of the mysterious people, to explore the unknown space.

結合靈媒訪談、監視器與數位合成影像,作者藉由靈媒協助與逝去的母親溝通,為仍在世的親人們化解傷痛。極富即興魅力、冷靜自持的紀實影像氛圍,作者卻將看/不見的懸念,成功轉化為作品內外、鬼魅游離的玄妙氛圍。

TRINITY is an innovative tale told as a hybrid of reality. Skillfully created, the enigmatic video describes the split between the worlds of the mental and the physical, how the living regard death and the dead, and how the physical world is ephemeral, as illusory as our mental processes.
