Design Statement

L’aide-Memoire is an endless love chasing story about a never grow-up boy and a bohemian-style girl.
Separation of different temperature zone is done by the large amount use of props light. Lamp on wall, stand and buddies light not only help me to create realistic feeling of the apartment, but also redefine each small area in the same scene and atmosphere setting. Thus, cooperated with actor’s action, I can easily change the temperature besides the actors.

Another lighting design concept is the de-construction and re-construction of time line. To emphasis the flowing of time, changings from morning to afternoon and from evening to night were separated to several light cues. And the cues were reconstructed into one scene. Cues were kept flowing among the performance until the scene end. Thus, no particular moment was stable, but rather like their relationship, is kept dynamic from time to time.
