「給火星人類學家」展覽援引比利時藝評家蒂埃里・德・迪弗於《以藝術之名》中假想的未來場景,邀請藝術家在網路空間以及實體現場,為日後可能登陸地球的「火星人類學家」,留下可供其考察人類文明的各式線索。藝術家將以「網頁」作為作品實質發生的特定場所,實體場所則作為作品延伸的界面,佈署與線上作品遙相呼應的索引。
The exhibition To Martian Anthropologistsinvokes the imaginary future scenes from In the Name of Art by the Belgic art critic, Thierry de Duve, and invites the artists to leave, both in cyberspace and in the physical venue, all kinds of clues for the martian anthropologists who might land on Earth someday to launch a field research on the human civilizations. For the artists, web pages will be the specific site where the artworks actually take place, and the physical venue serves as an extended interface and an index of deployment echoing remotely the online artworks.

《校準:藍幕》實體空間現場|Calibrate: Blue screen
夕陽低垂,各種光在夜裡浮動閃現。熙來攘往的公路車潮與通明深邃的街燈,遠看是點點微光與星叢,構築了現代生活與城市。流水時間隨一幀幀靜態影像片段切格,循序播放,造就了真實般的觀視錯覺。而現在,超級逼真的巨量影像以各種介面,朝我們襲來。在此刻所有人被迫遣返的獨處時刻,眼前唯留發光的屏幕與影像,這一切也許是從一個碰撞的火花開始,光以點綿延成線,以線拓展為面,構成時間與文明。

展場中看似發光的屏幕,《校準:藍幕》以螢光漆模擬投影機的失訊影像,製造因物件遮擋而投影在牆上的輪廓與陰影,辯證實體與存在的對位關係。《藍幕》的網路作品為一個實時的登入網頁,當有人在線上登入時,展場作品的燈泡會即時切換明滅,現實中以螢光漆模擬的影像畫面來回往復在機器影像與材質的實體之間,切換線上與線下的觀點。












藍幕 |Blue screen (online)

The sun goes down and all sorts of shimmering lights linger at night. The bustling highway traffic and bright, deep street light, seen from far, have turned into dispersed dim lights and a star cluster, both of which constitute the modern urban life. The flow of time is cut into static frames of fragmented images, which are played in sequence to create a visual illusion of reality. Nowadays, a great amount of images of super verisimilitude, through all sorts of interfaces, have invaded us. At the moment when everyone is forced to regain the life of solitude, all left in front of us are the glowing screens and images. In the beginning, it might start from a collision of sparkles from which light stretches out by spots as a line expanding into a surface, by which time and civilization are thus constituted.

The seemingly glowing screens can be seen in the exhibition room. In Calibrate : Blue Screen, the artist uses fluorescent paint to simulate the projector's missing image, in order to create, by obstructed objects, contours and shadows projected on the wall. In so doing, the artist tries to see dialectically the relationship of counterpoint between substance and existence. The online work of "Blue Screen" is a real-time login page. When someone logs in online, the light bulbs of the works in the exhibition will switch on and off in real time, between online and offline views.

《星叢》以滑鼠點選空白網頁的任何一點,解離構成螢幕上白色,任三張與 #red #green #blue 標記有關的實時資料圖片,從點到點之間,取樣白色的色彩構成與(偏頗而隨機的)意義拼貼。《像素與星叢》耗費眾人之力,在藝文中心現有的牆面上,以螢光筆螢光漆,規矩地點描屏幕成像的規律與秩序,完成了將近16000多的像素所組成的空白畫面。以無數螢光三色RGB 光點,點描數位影像屏幕中「趨近白色」的身體。

In "Star Cluster", click any point of the blank webpage with the mouse to dissociate and form the white on the screen. Any three real-time data pictures related to the #red #green #blue mark, click to enlarge and deconstruct the white. "Pixels and Star Cluster" employs countless fluorescent spots of RGB lights,cdepict by pointillism the body“close to white”on the digital image screen. using highlighters and fluorescent paint to trace the spot, follow the RGB order of the screen, and complete a blank screen composed of nearly 16,000 pixels.
