film & newspaper

Jinology consists of video prologues for nonexistent digital games and a fabricated newspaper, analyzing the intricate aspects of economic activities, including cooperation, competition, risk-taking, etc. The prologues, adopting a first-person digital gaming perspective, feature non-narrative absurdity and rough handcrafts, diverging from the prevailing trend of refined visual aesthetics in digital gaming products.

Instead, they aim to challenge the norm and serve as a metaphor for the necessity of versatility and innovation when navigating the ever-changing landscape, whether in physical or virtual technological realm intersected by various cultural backgrounds today. Economic activities closely reflect the integrated physical and virtual aspects of society, illustrating a simulated operational model.
