TURNED A BLIND EYE

A pirate walked into a bar wearing an eye patch and one hook for his arm.
Barman asked:
“what happen to your eye?”
Pirate: “A bird shit in it then I lost my eye”
Barman: “No way, bird shit won’t hurt your eye like that?!”
Pirate: “Well, it’s the first day I had my hook on”.


The intellect is a sharp instrument,  without the user’s menu humans beings seems to have long way to go in dealing such intellect, and learn how to use such tool without causing self harm or eventually  (self) blinded by it. Unfortunately  it seems to be the only tool in the shop.
我们的智能是一个基于”切割”的犀利工具, 人类对驾驭这个具有智能的生命本身缺乏认知.我们如何在不可避免的过度开发智能的过程中和之后避免其戕害, 然而除却智能/智力我们仿佛也别无选择.

“Lightning Struck” does not only symbolise a wakeup call, with tons of steel, concrete, electricity and light, it’s physical presence makes it act like one. Plato’s cave is not merely a philosophical metaphor, it’s in fact a very much literal depiction how higher dimensions project it’s existence onto lower ones. What we observe from our sensory faculties is vast limited and deceitful as it maybe just a projection of something could never to perceived by us. This necessity of other unknown existences is vital undertone along our human history. May it be folklores, mythologies, conspiracy theories, paranormal phenomenons, and even till today the “not yet unified theory” in theoretical physics, all of this left great spaces for our imagination - one of the most primitive and powerful form of artistic creativity. This imagination of otherliness or the courage of it is the only wings to break through the prison built by rationalism, materialism world views. Here “Lightning Struck” works as a reminder of our human beings’ courage and capacity to imagine the otherliness.

“Confusion says” series messes with word structures and their construction methods,  to generate new connotations & denotations potentials, and their induced mis-understandings, miss-readings, specially when english is not the mother tongue .


THE EMO PROJECT

#LIGHT INSTALLATION SERIES

Size: various

Edition: 5 editons
Materials:
concrete + steel + PVC + light tubes
+ electric power
This emo project series was originated from my own text msgs with close ones. When the emotional charged messages were not answered and left in vain, or perhaps even not appropriate to communicate, i can’t help wondering its whereabouts, perhaps they felt into the cracks of virtual space, or lost in the glitches of telecommunication web and stuck in abyss of amnesia forever to be known. Fantasies of them landed on top of old building, street corner, or just leaning to next to a  dirty rubbish bin. The idea of possibility one day I may catch a glimpse of them metabolise these wonderings. Random locations was chosen for large glowing  personal text messages in urban spaces, that has a quality of being abandoned, overlooked or ignored, or too banal to be appreciated.  It reminds me in thinking of those place where all the communications felt though and became impossible.”

“情绪工程项目”系列源于我私人短信息,当它们作为情感的载体和媒介传递失效,或者因为不太恰当时空关系而变得袅无音讯。我总会好奇它们到底去了哪儿, 是掉在了虚拟空间的缝隙中, 还是丢失在电信网络的错乱编码中,  卡在失忆的时空深渊里永不可寻. 它们是否也会恰好落在建筑顶上,街头,荒地,或在湖的岸边, 甚至倚靠在垃圾桶的傍边。这个系列就是为了纪念那些情绪复杂的, 那些吞吞吐吐的, 那些言不达意的, 那些不知所云的, 那些欲言又止的时刻。语言之无力,沟通之无能。

“I work with any given parameter of any given situation. I take advantage of these opportunities by adding on, taking out, giving a nudge or touch, swapping, disconnecting, pairing, or comparing, in order to bring out the potential of the scenarios, materials, or the relationship between them, or their relationship with us. Being economic both on materials and methodology is one of my basic principles. I work with everyday items (sometimes works discarded by other artists), or litter in general, and apply the least possible effort and least resistance, in a rather minimal form. These ‘touches’ work as a catalyst to trigger, intervene or evoke a series of reactions, chain reactions or to change the readings of everyday life.”

“我与任何给定的情况下,任何给定的参数。我利用这些机会的增加,取出,给人一种轻推或触摸,交换,隔离,配对,或比较,以发挥潜力的情况下,材料或它们之间的关系,或它们之间的关系与我们联系。作为经济的材料和方法,是我的基本原则之一。我的工作与日常用品(有时由其他艺术家作品被丢弃),或一般垃圾,应用尽可能少的努力和阻力最小,而最小的形式。这些“涉及的工作作为一种催化剂来触发,干预或引起一系列的反应,链式反应而改变日常生活的阅读。” (google translation)
