Unlimited Ocean 无尽海

When I was a child, I used to be crazy about collecting flower seeds. I wonder why the flower seeds were so attractive to a 6-year-old girl. Maybe, as human being, it's our instinct to love and appreciate the creation of nature. That kind of love is pure, without any desire, and expect nothing in return. When I saw the works of Wolfgang Laib, a serene presence and a reductive beauty, my childhood memories popped up surely and clearly.

死亡是巨大而耀眼的事情

死亡是这样一个巨大耀眼的事情,因为它巨大的压倒性的存在,我们才会更加疯狂的去思考很多事情。我们需要死亡的存在来使我们不断进化。进化的前提就是死亡,村上春树大概是在说这个意思。我们会在一次次轮回重生中变得更好吗?在死亡中变得更好。

诗意和政治

在所有的姿态里,我喜欢无赖般的,甚至有点邪门歪道的Francis Alys,他敲着小棍,牵着羊,偷偷撒着油漆, 就能制造“政治”的恐慌。他的作品并不是正面反抗的政治,他通过小规模的行动产生了大规模的舆论效应。

光束下的陌生人

在漫天相机和遍地人群的名胜古迹,甚至是日常的街道上,我们每一个人作为“背景”又出现在多少陌生人的旅行照片, 自拍或合照里,而这些照片又是被如何保存,观看和传递的。每次想到这些便觉“当代影像“的可怖。
