Collaboration with Sean Cheng

In order to bid farewell to the past, he works hard to redirect his life back on track. He pulls the curtain back before the sun fills the room, and when the light is switched on, the curtain is drawn again. He packs up everything that has been left behind and tries to establish a new normal in life. He has also deleted several playlists, preventing melancholic emotions from being triggered. He tries to wipe out any past traces and signs, and the only exception is when he brought home a potted plant of birds-of-paradise; this is something that he would have never done in the past. The house used to be filled with greenery but not because of him; he is someone that can’t even take care of the strongest of plants. When he suddenly woke up from feeling dark and gloom, all the plants in the room had already withered and dried. It was not just him who had died after all. He places the plant before a window and hopes to give each other a new beginning. He pulls the curtain back before the sun fills the room, and when the light is switched on, the curtain is drawn again. He waters the birds-of-paradise in between. His life seems to be slowly gaining a new order until he noticed that peculiar room on the other side...

《兩個房間,一個愛情故事》,2020
窗簾、燈、盆栽、動力裝置、震動馬達、程式、控制器、尺寸可變、4:30 一個循環

寶藏巖光節
9.19-11.8.2020

本計劃與鄭任翔合作

為了向過去道別,他努力讓自己的生活重拾正軌——在陽光照進房間前把窗簾打開,在把燈點亮後將窗簾拉上。他把留下的東西全部打包裝箱,試圖為生活建立起一個新的常規;刪除了好幾個播放清單,避免某些觸景傷情的可能,他將過去的線索消除殆盡,唯一的例外是有天抱了一盆天堂鳥回家——那是他過去不可能會做的事情。過去的房子裡其實滿是綠意,但那全部都不是他的功勞,他是那種連擁有最堅韌生命力植物都照顧不來的人,在陷入黑暗的那段時間裡,當他回過神來時,才發覺滿室的植物都枯掉了——原來一起死去的不只是他。他把他安置在窗前,想說也許這是給彼此的一個重新開始的機會。在陽光照進房間前把窗簾打開,在把燈點亮後將窗簾拉上,在這之間,他還會為天堂鳥澆個水。他的日子似乎漸漸獲得了新的秩序,直到他注意到對面奇怪的房間⋯⋯
