Review 
“As projectionist Hsuan-Kuang Hsieh told me, “I want to create something that could spark familiarities, also create comfort to the audiences since they will be interacting with the projection closely. My goal is to create a level of intimacy. While the projection subjects might come from our world and reality, by collaging and manipulating the videos, I also hope to create some magical moments that are transformative and unexpected.” Hsieh hopes audiences will take with them, “A piece of memory from the past or for the future. The projections in Terra exhibited various levels of home building with trees and birds, city blueprints and dancer portraits.”
— Katherine Katherine Grace Murphy, Exploring LACDC’s New Home with the Creators of Terra

“The panels throughout the space shifted with projections of clouds, birds, forests, people’s faces, and structures, all helping to create a palpable sense of earth and home.”
