Prompt: In this project, we needed to combine the perception of sound, color and view to create a 2- 2.5 minute video by Premiere Pro to show our most value.

For me, the most important thing is my questing and doubting the world. I often wonder and doubt everything in this world de ned by human beings. In the final version of my work, I used relatively psychedelic shooting techniques and visual effects to record the real-life and real things in my city, and then combined my questions and interviews with others to introduce thinking. The subway, the cars, the crowds, everything seems normal, but the vertigo shot doesn’t seem real. Until the alarm clock rings, I open my eyes, the remaining fragments goes back, the dream seems to wake up. But then I start acted out in a strange way. The text on the computer screen and the background sound, all echo the dream at the beginning of the video, as if the dream never woke up, or perhaps all the absurd scenes are real. In this way, I recorded my thoughts on “true”, “false”, “dream” and “reality”, hoping to arouse more people’s thoughts and hear their opinions.
