In this experiment I update an episode of my memory through materializing a piece of film in space. A motorized toy train leads handmade carriages running slowly on the tracks inside a dark room while a female ghost Siu-Sin revolves around the room accompanying the movement of the train. Siu-Sin is a character from the film A Chinese Ghost Story (1987).The scene where Siu-Sin makes her entrance has always left an impression on me. However, upon revisiting the film, the agenda of yet another character, her lover, struck me. His purpose was to search for her despite not being able to perceive her presence. This installation situates an imaginary narrative where Siu-Sin levitates around the room, while her lover pursues an endless search.
