Wearing the fog is a double-screen video installation with a non-linear narrative structure. It centers around the coldness of the industrial world and the indifference of a family. In daily life, people have to communicate with each other through the obstruction of gauze mask and fog. This kind of interaction disrupts the possibility of real contact. This multi-screen video recombines time and space in the image itself. Thus, using multiple screens is to import montage into the video installation, which has the effect of deconstructing and extending time and space. In other words, multiple screens can divide the space as the extension of a multi-dimensional space.
