The Pivot Point

Lin Ban-Xian, a Taoist master from the Chinese mainland, settled in southern Taiwan during China’s last dynasty. His last words deceived the locals into burying his dead body upside down at the intersection of two roads. This is said to have activated the Scissors Curse which harms locals while blessing immigrants. Today, a bronze statue of Chiang Kai-Shek stands upon the Pivot Point, echoing on the individual level beyond the myth. 








The tale is developed into CGI with figures and props referencing existing images. The digital Lin and Chiang, both self-portraitised, breathe my voice which mimics their languages and tones. A curse that was activated twice? Being politically consumed is where the tale seems destined to. The never-blinking staredowns from the characters manifest both the incompetence and the refusal against ideological representation and projection.
