"Their stories become poems painted and engraved on the walls of their Angel Island jail, present images of which we get a glimpse as one part of Hsuan-Kuang Hsieh’s outstanding projection designs."
- Theater Eddy, San Francisco Bay Area Theater Reviews, "The Far Country" by Eddie Reynolds

"...the play feels like a huge, sprawling historical epic. This suspension of disbelief is largely aided by the dazzling, larger-than-life visual projections by Hsuan-Kung Hsieh...Projection mapping, after all, is the great new smoke and mirrors of contemporary theater."
"In its West Coast premiere at Berkeley Rep, Jennifer Chang’s lyrical production distills both the terror and the mystery of the Angel Island detention center, framed by Hsuan-Kuang Hsieh’s ethereal projections, standing sentinel at the gateway to the Bay Area for decades."
