Soon after Karl Marx has predicted that “All fixed, fast-frozen relations…are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify,” the elder generation witnessed the complete colonization of spaces by various types of institutional violence such as the industrial system, the military system, capitalism, and representative democracy. Subsequently, the advances in digital technologies not only synchronize the consciousness of the people around the world but also turn the globe into a single market. In other words, no any individual or group is able to escape the fate of having colonized consciousness and spirit. Chung-Li KAO’s adherence to or opinion on machine-produced images is prone to convey different impressions such as crossing his bridges before he comes to them, going beyond his depth, having a very narrow view, being disconnected with the reality, and just caring about limited and immediate interests. KAO presents his reflections in his artworks, to mention some, Photochemical and Mechanical Installation of Moving Images, Illuminated Cinema, A Slide Briefing Film, A Patent on Visual Toys, The Image-implicated Images, Ten Digital Short Films, and 24x18.half. KAO has a turbulent career, and muttered “don’t forget your original goal” from time to time. To what goal does he refer? “The goal of preventing the younger generation from facing the predicament of alienation that the elder generation has suffered from”, KAO mumbled.
