I HATE THEREFORE I MARRY (恨嫁家族)

Selected Category: Lighting Design

Category: Lighting Design

Design Statement

Marry or not? I Hate Therefore I Marry is a story about four sisters, their mother, their men and their lackings.

Teal enhanced the ex-boyfriend’s jealousy; lavender embodied the innocent romance of the third sister and the violist; blood red sprayed the space with sisters’ tangly struggles of love and hate, with the ex and the seducer. Enraged by the revenge from the ex, the light tightened on the elder sister like a curse; moments later, she was running wild in the big pool of light to ease her anger, but seems getting lost into the void gradually.

Lighting space isn’t merely physical space. It purifies and sublimates the emotions. The house was created by some geometric forms of lights, it’s also a metaphor to mentally imprison the characters. Lighting opens up aesthetics, dramatic, psychological and conceptual spaces, wandering around characters and times, and becoming another performing role.
