The Resonance of Fragile (2014)


Human civilization and history had been recorded on sides of paper since two thousand years ago. The invention of paper was a great leap in the technology that kept human memories alive. Today, new media have created a contemporary knowledge structure and expanded it to the margin of the universe. However, the excessive expansion eventually results in the neglect of remarkable pieces of information that we fail to digest in a timely manner.

 

Nowadays, our retinae are obsessed with various forms of screens in which messages become the little things we enjoy in our daily life. The rapid flow of information serves as a stimulant to our superficial thinking. We will not cognize the emptiness and shallowness of our thinking until the effects of the stimulant wear off.

 

When we keep gazing at the pieces of paper, a sense of alienation caused by losing focus gradually replaces the elegance and historicity of paper as a carrier of human civilization.I attempt to transform the media into a kind of materiality and challenge the dominance of vision by appropriating physical vibration. I blend the memories of real-life experiences into the work through the sound field created by the installation. I expect this work, combined with the delicate and translucent texture of paper, to have an alternative resonance for the viewers.

在將近兩千年前,紙張開始承載人類的文明與歷史,那是科技在歷史上的躍進,使記憶的脈開始傳遞。而後新媒體也各從其類地吸收著當代的知識結構,超展開至宇宙的邊際,最後人們卻將這些來不及被時間消化的訊息霧化在雲端。

如今,人的視網膜早已習慣且不斷地被各式的螢幕眷養著,這些規格化方框裡的訊息成為生活中小確幸的亮點,資訊快速竄流是思考最表層的興奮劑,藥效盡失之時才會意識到本身寬廣卻淺薄的事實。

我開始發現我的眼球很難停留在紙上,當一次又一次地將視線游移時,感受不到它作為載具時所帶來的優雅與緩慢,取而代之的是一種因為無法聚焦所造成的疏離感。如何從時間的皺摺中找著數位界面與紙本載具相應的點變成作品討論的主軸。
