Shun Yu works with a variety of disciplines such as video installation, happening, theatre and film and the mixture of them, etc. He explores the nature and the boundaries of video, theatre, and cinema and so on, how they distinguish from each other as different mediums but at the same time share certain commons. He has been influenced by 20th century’s avant-garde movements such as Dadaism and Situationist International. His works resemble a sense of ‘science fiction within the reality’ in the contemporary world. He is particular interested in the so-called “post-ideological world” and its effect on the younger generation, and the sense of alienation when dealing with social issues and the project of art and politics.
