BODYLESS
BODYLESS

An elderly political prisoner passes away in his cell, and his ghost descends into an underworld of shifting digital spaces and images.The story is from director’s childhood memories which depicts the reduction of humanity by military government during the martial law, the colonial culture as well as the digital era into a story beyond reality. A political prisoner becoming a ghost returned to the living world to visit his family, but found out that the house is empty. An ominous force deteriorates the spiritual world and reduces human forms and memory into simple geometrical shapes.

Blending immersive digital storytelling with Taiwanese folk beliefs, BODYLESS is a surreal trip through the twisting strands of life, death and digital surveillance based on the director’s experiences of Taiwan under martial law in the 1970s. The latest VR work from award-winning digital artist Hsin-Chien Huang and musician Lim Giong.
