    Still Here and Everywhere explores the indomitable continuity of time. With or without our individual selves, time marches on. We choose our relationship to this phenomena, but it is an indisputable truth. I find the idea very liberating and I want viewers to see this as something that can be embraced without fear. Everything ends, there is nothing we can do about it, and thats pretty great.

    Directed by: Snow Yunxue Fu
    Animation: Snow Yunxue Fu
    Music: Daniel Brookman

    We have a long-term dilemma for we have a short-term body. The shifting nature of human emotions is like the seaweeds on the bottom of the ocean, floating around according to the different currents passing by. Our love and joy, our betrayal and hates, and many things in between wave within the thoughts and choices we make in our everyday life. One cause for our desire for intimacy is to extend our limited selves. We attempt to know others and to love someone also help to achieve one of the greatest efforts of self-realization. Digital space has a certain stability so much more so than the real space we inhabit. Digital space is a realm that exists in-between life and death while it belongs to neither. Digital space can be treated as neutral. You may choose to attach meaning and thoughts to it, but its nature does not necessarily change. In a way, digital space is rather constant, the little piece of eternity that we can encounter in our everyday modern life.
