" We use 'Hu Lun' as the theme of the name. Everything is flexible, we explain the macroscopic world, let people feel the mysteries that exist during the period, but they only touch the surface, and the so-called explanation has no end. As an individual, it is in the world, not obsessed with details, does not care about form, between all things, everywhere, unpredictable, unable to follow. "

Digital Media

The three scenes in the video are the most representative beginning, climax and ending. The concept of "I" is mentioned in the main body video. In order to express this concept more strongly, on the one hand, we respect the original main body video, and on the other hand, we make a lot of modifications and adaptations. From visual image modification, object movement track, color texture changes and so on; From the perspective of VR viewing adaptability, we have focused on modifying the perspective of panoramic camera, including screen switching and so on. When I become "me", in "my world", I believe that everyone sees a different landscape, and everyone feels a different feeling. A lot of people are asking what we think about Bolt, and I think a good work is one where everyone has their own idea about it, rather than trying to find an "official" explanation. So, we made this VR video just to take you into a kind of conceptual world that we built, rather than explain what we did. When you can watch this video calmly, you will have the opportunity to appreciate its shock to the mind.

HuLun - Whole

Digital Media

Hulun: whole. Can be understood as an individual, let a person's most immediate reaction is to swallow, a process without chewing, do not know the taste. There are so many points that can be elaborated on. To think of it another way, "bolt" lives in it and changes it at will, precisely because without discernment of taste, it can imagine various tastes, which are unpredictable and cannot be followed; And this is much like Wuji, it is invisible without phase, tasteless and odorless, silent and colorless, no beginning and no end, so that "nameless" can be referred to, but it can derive the essence of all things, is the ownership and basis of all things.

HuLun - Wave

Digital Media

In macro terms, its visible and invisible are in the human heart, it is compared to a wave (refers to the local particle of the liquid with a free surface after being disturbed, leave the original equilibrium position and make periodic fluctuation motion, and spread around the phenomenon). Dialectically a wave is a tiny wave and a wave is a huge wave. As a curved movement, the perspective of the current and wave coincide, immediately produce another chemical effect, all things at a certain value can be adapted to explain each other, this is the beauty. Everything is changeable, we explain the macro world, let people feel the mystery of existence everywhere, but only touch the surface, the so-called explanation has no end. We just have an idea of doing this, but another way of thinking is good, not "eating whole" and "giving up eating for fear of choking".

HuLun - Dynamic and static

Digital Media

In ancient Chinese philosophy, the concepts of "movement" and "static" have a much broader and more complex meaning than the usual meanings of movement and static in physics. For example, being easy, having desire, being capable, and being vigorous are all included in the scope of "moving", while constant, having no desire, doing nothing, etc., are included in the scope of "static". Heraclitus once said, "One cannot step into the same river twice." It is not that one cannot, but that there is only one river in every moment. The so-called "the same river" has no meaning, which just confirms the identity of things in constant change.

HuLun -  Chaos

Digital Media

The ancient Chinese imagined that there was no ambiguity in the universe before, and this state was called "chaos", which is also used to describe vague and unclear thoughts. Now it seems that the so-called "chaos", refers to the seemingly certain rules of things, can also appear to be incredibly complex and varied, only a small difference in conditions, can lead to jaw-dropping different results. The "butterfly effect" is a metaphor mainly about chaos.

HuLun -  Bathroom

Digital Media

Shower time tends to be full of imagination, everyone in the bathroom is a philosopher, come up with all kinds of crazy ideas. This is a process, from minnow to minnow, from minnow to minnow, from minnow to minnow, from minnow to minnow, from minnow to minnow, without a clear path that needs to be followed all the time, just as much as you want. In a word, bolt is you and me, everything, any tiny being.
