Set against the backdrop of the Third Taiwan Strait Crisis in 1996, when every family was in front of the TV, watching as the fleeting flame crash into the ocean, the work Nosedive (2017) considers how the crashing Mach 5 missile that would have drastically change the island’s destiny, instantly compressed space due to the sense of speed in the footage, further breaking the historical impasse and creating a surreal imagination.
