身體的姿態成就他人的景觀

Body being others spectacle

現代旅遊以影像作為主要的紀錄媒體,著迷於著名景點與文化地標,並置身於當中與之合照。

 

作品探索身體可發展的奇觀和在現代旅行當中的合照的想像,嘗試探索微小的旅行-在有限的空間中體驗相對的移動造成的對空間的陌生感,同時呈現合照時隱藏的規範及形式。以外在之物(鏡、照片和投影機)重新檢視及定義自己與現實世界之間事物與自我的距離,與陌生人之間的關係如何在靜默之中協商重置,而最終以不同媒介的影像重現關係建立過程中的一瞬間,其後被放大、輸出及展示,與眾多陌生人的互動之中累積一系列合照的紀錄。

Contemporary travel uses images as the primary form of documentation. Captivated by the sight of landmarks and cultural sites, one places oneself in it and captures the resulting image.

 

This work explores the developable spectacles of the body and the imagination captured by images taken during contemporary travel. It tries to explore a minute form of travel – to experience how corresponding movements trigger a sense of estrangement within confined space, as well as the hidden limitations and constraints behind an image. The distance between oneself and the world, as well as how the relationships with strangers are negotiated and readjusted in silence are reevaluated and redefined through different objects (eg mirrors, photographs and projectors). Ultimately, images in various mediums are used to reproduce a single moment in the course of a relationship being built. This becomes magnified, exported and showcased, and the interactions with many strangers are compiled and recorded in a series of images.
