Hi~! is the artist’s early exploration of narrative credibility. The artist uses a children’s camera (that worths

nine dollars) to shoot a crime-scene performance she arranged at her own place. She has an actor with a

toy gun and a criminal costume waiting for her roommate to step out from the shower and records the

embarrassing moment when the roommate meets the actor - when the real meets the performance. In

post-production stage, the artist adds forcefully special effects and video languages such as zooming in

or out, panning and slow motion et cetera, enhancing possible suspicions of the audience. In a candid,

unpolished way, the artist reveals the inherent subjectivity in cinematic and theatrical languages.
