Apichatpong has produced a number of shorts, feature films, and video installations. Over the years he has also made numerous video sketches and studies called "video diaries" with a portable digital camera that he carries with him on a daily basis.

The video is a sketch in preparation of the work, Fireworks (Archives) ( 2014), which documents animal and human sculptures in a temple in the northeast Thailand. To Apichatpong, the region’s arid land and political force from Bangkok drove people to dream beyond the everyday’s reality. The oppression had led to several revolts in the region, and the temple’s wayward statues are one such revolt. This work has been shown at his solo exhibition “Ghosts in the Darkness” at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum (Japan, 2016).
