    Cao Shu’s poetic piece “The One Who Lived Yesterday” uses vivid simulation to illustrate a scene of distorted time, as well as the oscillation between objective data and subjective memories. Using computer pre-rendered images, the piece explores the possibilities of digital existence, multi-angle views, and spatial narration.

    In the piece, a voice runs through the film featuring an anonymous, dream-like speaker who tells a story about yesterday. The voice seems to come from a different place, echoing the perspective of a “Progress-tracer” to some degree, from a different “incarnation,” while the speaker himself is hiding. Each of its incarnations is the shape of “this yesterday,” and yesterday just made up the future.
