“I believe the fundamental meaning of life relies on feelings, but my model of life has been inspired by the freedom in video-making. This sense of freedom is always in tension with the outside world. “
「於我,私人的根本生命意義依存於情,但生活的模式卻啟發於錄像創作的逍遙自在,以至這份逍遙自在跟外在世界的拉扯當中。」

“We strongly emphasize rebellious҉ revolutionary҉ low-end҉ aesthetics. We insist to produce video art in low-budget and 1-person or multiple-person production teams; low definition, low resolution, and low video quality with background removal and glitchy textures; low-finishing with subjects out of focus, unstable frames, non-continual editing, and unsynced sound.”
「我們強調極端的 ҉反 ҉叛 ҉式 ҉革 ҉命 ҉式 ҉的 ҉低 ҉端 ҉美 ҉學 ҉,堅持低預算一人而至數人的製作團隊生產的錄像藝術;低傳真、低解像度、低質素的去取背景等具失真與毛刺的錄像質感;低完成度如不聚焦被攝者、不穩定畫面、不連續性剪接、不同步聲畫等不完美的錄像技術。」

“One of the reasons technologies come into being is that humans yearn to extend their own abilities. Today, we co-exist with various technologies, and in fact can hardly live without them. To discuss images, we must imagine the lens as an eye of ours, and we must get used to this additional “eye” and utilise it often to discover the ways we observe the world. “
「科技的出現其中一個原因在於人們渴望延伸自己的能力,今天我們都與各種科技共存並已經難以脫離它們地生活。討論影像,則需要想像鏡頭就是我們另一顆眼睛,我們必須熟習這顆外加的「眼睛」並時常運用它去發現我們觀察世界的方式。」

— “I regard the poetry of imagery as a personal dream journey. I pick up the video camera and construct my own imagery. Your relationship to me is as though you are reading my dream diary.”
「我視意象詩為個人的夢境遊歷。拿起攝錄機,建構自己的意象,你與我的關係,像你在觀看我的夢境日記。」
