History is the interpretation of linear signs and symbols. By decontextualizing the signs, the images are liberated. To fight against this illusion, let there be glitches. This video is sampled from Assignment Taiwan, a propaganda film made by the US army in the 70s, introducing the colonized history and the establishment of the US military in Taiwan after the Second World War.
