Su Hui-Yu (蘇匯宇) explores the connection between mass media, pop culture, memories of martial law and the post-colonial history of Taiwan and East Asia. His work The Space Warriors and the Digigrave (2023) combines fantasies and folk tales that hint at nationalism, Confucianism and chauvinistic values, based on a unique experience of the collective memory of the island nation during the martial law era. Using nowadays open-source AI tools combining with traditional film skills, Su wants either metaphysically or technically providing a solution of reconciliation for those who’s still struggling with the nations, identities, genders, morals, and ideologies.
