History, War and Their Betrayers

歷史、戰爭,與其叛徒

In the past, the image was an aid that served actual warfares and conflicts.
It has now, however, become a weapon, wielding in battlefields.

Because of its remarkable liquidity, mobility, and ability to differentiate specific groups of audiences (in art, experimental cinema, documentary, photojournalism, and entertainment), image becomes one of the best tools to expand battlefields. However, the collaboration between image and history is liable to collapse because of their deceptive and devious nature. Image with its illusory power fundamentally contradicts with the logical reasoning in writing. Their mutual exclusiveness dooms their destiny to be the shadow of each other.
