◎創作概念


自從地球暖化議題發酵以來,人們開始注意二氧化碳排放的嚴重性。


而生活在地球上早已億萬年的植物,每天仍默默地吸收二氧化碳,轉換成動物所需的氧氣。這組作品我試圖表現植物在土地上的生與死。藉由正與反的辯證關係,來探討究竟植物的動與不動,是該由我們動物的時間觀念(秒)來看?還是植物的年來看? 我希望這組作品能夠呈現類似於動物的生與死,而不是刻板印象中的「不動」。



相片裡的時間將不動的植物給切割開,無論是安平樹屋裡那棵爬滿牆壁的樹根、或者一片乾草覆蓋於大地上的紋理。時間在植物上面留下的痕跡, 是如此地深刻,只是人類太晚去察覺。


若人們不能理解植物正在緩慢移動的秘密,甚至無法察覺細小的變化,我們要怎麼去感受他們是跟我們一樣的生命共同體?




時間被相機與底片定格住,那個當下的植物已經跟現在的他不一樣。

有的也許就這樣枯黃死去...有的則是長高了兩公分...或者早已將那個廢墟給包圍住?


我想,過了千萬年後,人類應該早已不在。但那些不動的他們,依然會發芽。

Creative Concept



Since the issue of global warming has entered the spotlight, people have started to pay attention to the importance of CO2 emissions.




Plants, which have been have been growing on this planet for millions and millions of years, absorb CO2 and transform it into the oxygen that animals need. In this collection of photographs, I try to show the life and death of the land's plants. Presenting a dialectical relationship, I investigate whether plants are "moving" or "unmoving." Should we use a conception of time experienced by animals (seconds)? Or should we take the perspective of plants (years)? I hope that this series of photos will be able to express a cycle of life and death similar to that of animals, rather than the stereotype of "unmoving" that most people have.



The photos provide a "slice of life," an incision into, an autopsy of, this "unmoving," whether it be the roots that have clambered up the walls of Fort Zeelandia in Tainan, or the contours of grass portrayed on floor tiles. The marks that Time leaves on plants are this deep, it's just that people have been slow in realizing it.



If people are blind to the secrets of plants' slow motion, incapable of taking note of their small changes, then how are we to truly understand that they, like us, are living beings and that we are ultimately part of the same life community?



Time is fixed by film. Plants that lived at some moment in the past are already very different plants today.


Some may have withered and died. Others may have grown two centimeters. Still others may have spread unchecked to cover human ruins.



I think that in 10 million years time mankind will have long gone extinct. But these unmoving life forms will still sprout shoots….
