The work, adj. Dance, takes the form of a teaching video, a kind of video widely available on the market or frequently seen on a TV channel. This work transforms the abstract adjectives into a series of dynamic codes such as physical movements/dancing movements, which allows viewers to interpret and imitate these movements on their own. Through the rhythms and the subtitle explanation in the video, viewers can experience a kind of common sentiments in certain abstract emotions. Viewers can also see or peep at the private reactions and emotions of those people doing the demonstration performance on the screen.

This project in collaboration with Alumi Liu and Damula Chuyoji.
