Length: 5 minutes 

People will generate a memory of what they have experienced, and generation and renewal process of the memory is the theme of this work. This work was intended to visualize the memory stored in the brain in the form of images. The brain was made into a paper room, external information accepted by the brain was written on papers with a Chinese brush, and papers write old memories cast into oblivion were covered by new papers, then we reshuffled and renewed our memories randomly.

Among three actors in the film, the leading actor represents “me”, and the other two actors represent those who influence “me” and those who have nothing to do with “me”. The minimalist relationships between the characters were used to express the memory mode of human brain.
