Based on a real-life incident that took place in Taipei, this ethereal video is a quiet requiem for a man who suffocated to death from erotic asphyxiation with his one-night stand, an event that took place when LGBT issues in Taiwan didn’t have the visibility they have today.

本作靈感源自2001年台北發生的一件箱屍案,兩名男子於網路相約進行窒息式性愛,不料一方意外致死,後遭棄屍滅跡。由於該案牽涉到同志、網路性愛、性虐待(SM)與行李箱棄屍等因素,被媒體賦予神秘化與戲劇化的色彩,疑犯更是飽受抨擊(嫌犯之網路暱稱為「虐犬」)。「虐犬」事件令作者想起自己也曾經多次做過殺人的夢,在夢中,在充滿罪惡感的驚懼之後,本能反應之一就是棄屍。於是本作擬造一個「夢境化的」事件場景,將(個人)夢境與(社會)新聞經驗混合,重啓我們對於性、社會、自我乃至道德的判斷。
