【Photographs / Sculptures】

持續攝影的計劃超過五年,透過攝影,我發現自己依舊在尋找在進行雕塑創作時同樣關心的事物,它們包括了:顏色、質感、體感、比例構成與物件的組合,我試圖藉由平面的影像去捕捉材料之間的對比與對話關係。到後來,我逐漸清楚地感覺到我在路上所尋找的,就是那些自然或人工的,功能性的或出於本意之外的事物,對我來說,它們就是「現成」的雕塑作品。

以現成物為主要創作材料一直是我創作中的核心之一,使用那些物件的同時,不由自主地意識到其背後來自日常生活的意義與內容,並且深深地影響觀者如何去觀看、回應我的作品。它們反映了既個人又具普遍性的記憶、習慣與生活方式,每個觀者都可以擁有自己詮釋的方式,因為作品中的感知是每個人都親自去經驗過的。於是現成物的定義不只是日常生活中的物件而已,現成的概念在此被擴及,用以形容人們生活的樣態、模式與軌跡。

The photography project has been carried out over a duration of more than 5 years. During the process behind lens, I realized I still sought the same elements that I pursued in sculpture - colors, texture, structure, volume, and the assemblage of objects. Yet through the lens, I attempted to capture the contrast and dialogue between materials in 2-dimensional images. In the end it became clear to me that the natural, artificial, functional or coincidental objects and situation I quested after on the streets are in fact "ready-made" to me.

The use of ready-made objects in creating works has been essential to my creative process. In the manipulation of these objects, I inevitably become aware of the underlying meaning and context rooted in daily life, and how they would deeply influence the ways audience perceive and respond to my work. They correspond to the personal yet universal memories, habits and lifestyle, so that each individual viewer is capable of interpreting and experiencing the work in their own way. Therefore, the "ready-made" are no longer merely daily objects; the concept of its existence encapsulates the appearance, patterns, and trails of human life at large.
