Dy(e)ing

 

 

The video recorded my first experience of dyeing in 2013, my second year living in New York City.

Everything happens so fast on this island, I felt I almost don’t have a second to breathe.   

I asked myself, “Do you really understand what’s happening or do you just want to know the result?” 

 

Seeking for the answer, I started recording my life with a Sony action camera, a camera I can tie on my head. 

I slowed down the clips and found that I am watching the world subjectively. There are so many precious details in my life in New York that I had never noticed! 

When I appreciated those details, those details of time passing also made me feel I am reviewing my process of dying in this world.
