My character Moon likes to use a red string to connect unrelated things together. the use of the red string is actually adapted from a Chinese mythical character called 'Moon Elderly'. In the myth, moon Elderly uses an invisible red string to connect two people together when they are destined to belong to each other. the way that Moon connects unrelated things together is to express the sense of loss of tradition.
In the video, Moon is sometimes invisible. Invisibility of humans is used as a metaphor to describe our emotional and mental states. By presenting a series of scenes tin which people walk by and look like strangers being cruel to Moon, Moon seems 'invisible' to these others even though she 'exists physically'. We appear as invisible beings chatting on the internet, but are we visible to each other when we walk in the streets? What defines our visibility? How do you know you are here?
