流動的生命線 Flowing lifeline 2015-2016
這系列作品原本是以彩色拍攝,為了呈現出悠久的歷史紀錄,最終決定以黑白加上少許的彩色來表現作品所代表的時代意義,為了能夠在白天拍攝具有流動感的人事物,而且要兼具作品的細膩質感,其間我研讀了一些攝影理論並自創了「時空概念」(Temporal and Spatial concept)攝影法,並以「分區曝光法」(Zone system 1941-安瑟‧亞當斯)的理論來實際運用於拍攝的當下.
Flowing lifeline 2015-2016
People work for some people or events in their whole life. We usually can’t see the image or trajectory left by life, because it exists only in the mind, and is gradually forgotten like a dream after a long time, only fuzzy fragments of memory remain. In order to preserve and present these rare images, I spent a long time to prepare and study how to make plane images stereoscopic and characterize time trajectory.
A good picture not only can cause emotional resonance and can bring different levels of ascension for themselves when you gradually understand the works. Besides, photos with vitality touch you, which is a sense of inexplicable art, such as a picture, telling the artist's life, his love and the historical background and the touching story of that picture. What I want to express is the 「emotion」 and 「vitality」 in the pictures. It is the life force in the pictures that greatly impress people’s heart.
This series of works were originally photographed in color. In order to show a long history of records, it was ultimately decided to add a little color to black and white to present the significance of times. In order to shoot humans and things with a sense of flowing during the day, and delicate spirits of works, I read some photographic theory during this time and put up with "space concept" (Temporal and Spatial concept) in photography, and applied "partition" (Zone system 1941- Ansel Adams) theory to practice in shooting.
To follow Einstein is to follow pretty simple theory, only using a single color. By using black and white colors, and take a long time exposure with special methods in the daytime. After a continuing experience and usage of a number of techniques, I finally realized my creative ideas. I hope to turn the plane image into a stereoscopic one, and add a sense of flowing to the original plane setting image, forming stereoscopic pictures with life force.
In this land full of pining for home, people wandering between dreams and fantasies. many people away from home came to the city together to pursue dreams, always competing and dealing with people around for their livings. Some of the losers will naturally quietly disappear in the boundless huge crowd.
Bread, love and desire have already hide their nostalgia and continue to tear their heart, with the last remaining conscience values really being poor. However, the years also disappears as time goes by quietly. And now still have the dream of doing and life is still going on. The scenery of life carries many vicissitudes of life.
Ximending is memories of most people since childhood in Taipei city. In photographs, there are dating couples, billboards and workers in the demonstrations. The bus taxi shuttle between them which formed double color eye-catching railways. The church in the building, numerous shaking figures in Cinema precinct, characters in static or in dynamic flow, paired with "Jay Chou" compelling locomotive billboards, indicating the pulsation process and its historical changes from this era, and I just use camera to record our time and dream that belong to us.
