Synopsis: Inspired by the literary imagery of Eliot’s poem “The Wasteland”, E-Wasteland uses video as a medium, combines live-action shooting and 3D compositing. I try to create an “electronic wasteland” in the digital age through vision, dance, and body movement, showing how human beings are digitally driven trapped, wrapped by technology, and trying to escape.
