▲ 創作理念|Creative concept「圖-系列作品之1」
在東京,我邀請人們分享死亡憧憬,並依據談及的地點、事件、人物、時間等拍攝了死亡景象。在參與者假死之後,我會對其姿勢與周遭環境進行些許變動,參入了無法控制的妥協。對於不想入鏡的參與者,便由我或他人代替;對於想法模糊者,我融入了自己的幻想。人們雖可避談死亡,但卻無法避免;與其視為禁忌,不如正視它的存在。

In Tokyo, I invited people to share their imagination of death, then I created an image of the death based on the discussion, including place, events, time, etc. Once the participants faked their deaths, I made some adjustments to their postures and surroundings which the participants had no say in. In the case of participants who did not want to be in the setting themselves, I or another would stand in for them. For those who were unclear, I embellished with my own imagination. Though people avoid talking about death, it cannot be avoided. Rather than treating it as taboo we may as well face its existence head on.
