Purification 淨化

Purification​​

Purification created during artist-in-residence in New Zealand at Unitec, the integration of local Maori myths, symbol and Nu Shu, trying to continue or construct new mysterious characters. The concept comes from both water and water surface, symbolizing purification, transformation, fusion and breakthrough of the psychical structure. The reflective water surfaces work as mirrors that tend to break what we normally see in the world, while the images under the water and the join-in of participants brings ripples, conversion, blurring and tranquility that represent a kind of spiritual purification and transformation. As human thoughts are soaked and washed by the flowing water, it always crisscrosses with duality such as clean and dirty, pure and filthy. However, as water wash away the dirt and return cleanness to us; it also throws away the smudges in life and the imperfection of society, letting us experience a sense of purity. There is a sort of beauty called tranquility after rippling; wind stops, waves slow down, and our minds become as still as the water.

Purification is an interactive multimedia work, via special program design, projected by two projectors onto a 120゚arc screen and one on the ground. While audience walk into the exhibit area, the image projected on the ground would turn into ripples; meanwhile, they can also watch the images on the wall, experiencing the quietness away from the crowd and din. Everything is back to the beautiful beginning, which is a good chance for pondering upon the meaning of peacefulness and desire-less-ness.

淨化

女人如水,水是潔淨的媒介,又是生命的維持者。

〈延續一連串神秘的話語〉似乎可以適用於目前為止我的每一件作品,作品大多以秘密文字書寫及圖像符號為題材,透過參與者的介入創造出另一層虛擬意象,藉由彼此情感的傳遞方能轉化其意義。

《淨化》於紐西蘭Unitec駐村期間所創作的作品,融合當地毛利神話和圖像及女書文字,試圖延續或是建構出新的神秘話語,作品以水及水面為整個中心思想,象徵了淨化、轉變、溶合及突破的精神結構。具有反射性的水面在此彷彿突破了世界萬象的鏡面,而水中的影像與參與者的介入產生了漣漪、轉變、模糊至平靜,則代表著一種彼此心靈的淨化和轉化。當思想被流動性的水濕潤及滌清,往往交錯著潔與穢、淨與垢,通過水去垢還淨,拋捨人生和社會的塵埃,體驗了漣漪後的澄淨,風停了,浪靜了,所以心靜如水。

《淨化》是一件多媒體互動作品,由二台投影機經由程式同步投射在一個120度弧形螢幕,另一台投影畫面投在地上,當觀眾走進展區時,地面上的投影畫面便會產生漣漪,同時觀眾也可觀看牆上的影像,就在這來來回回的人群中,經歷了喧嘩之後的安寧,沉思在靜思,恢復了初時之狀,平和無求。
