Comment

I have produced a new type of literature, a combination of video art, installation and performance, which strongly relate to literature such as poems and novels. In my definition, a new type of literature is the mixture of speech, reading scripts, dialogues and writings, which compose the new structure of story. I use video and performance to express a story which is generated by conflicts between the different perspectives and concepts of value.
