In the 5th and final part of Linda Lai’s Prolog for Our Manifestos II reproduced in Floating Teatime, she asserts art’s power to generate knowledge, citing several theorists in Critical Theory, reiterating the place of experience. 《我們的錄像宣言2》的「引言」來到轉載「據點一杯茶」的最後一節：黎肖嫻引述不同「批評理論」的觀點，總結錄像書寫不單帶有生產知識的能量，更打開對「經驗」的重塑。
The “Prolog” of “Our Manifestos II” (2021.05) explicitly examines videography as a way of living, an attitude of life, and the quest for in-depth transformation in the midst of complex, crisis living. In the 2nd of the 5-part series, Linda Lai discusses videography as soundings, ways to voice out as crafted thought paths, the materiality of remembering as micro narratives.《我們的錄像宣言2》於「據點一杯茶」5次連載的第2篇：黎肖嫻開宗明義把錄像書寫看為一種創作人的活的型態和取向，以至於對深度轉化的渴求。如是，對錄像書寫的認知遠超狹義的藝術操守和理所當然的影像美學。這次，她提出了錄像書寫作為「發聲」的藝術的面向。「記住」，必須透過「思路」的展現，而這就是錄像的「微」敘事性格。
