裝置 |installation | 400 x375 cm |2021

古董裁縫機,回收布料,PET寶特瓶,馬達,飛機模型, 鎢絲燈泡,1965年台北空照圖帆布輸出

Antique sewing machine, recycled fabric, PET bottle, electric motor, airplane model, light bulb, aerial photo of 1965 Taipei printed on canvas

在心感地圖這件作品當中,郭奕臣以台北的舊空照圖為基底,並使用回收瓶罐、縫紉機的試車布、時裝製作過程剩下的各種布邊和剩餘材料模擬各種自然或人造的環境。裝置亮點的骨董裁縫機擺放於淡水河出海口的相對位置,回收布料象徵著循環流動的河水,以逆流的方式行經台北,象徵流經不同時代的記憶。觀眾可以使用現場提供的素材,走入地圖中標誌出屬於自己的地方亮點,這個地點可能帶有屬於個人的重要回憶,也是在城市中心靈的居所,藉由觀眾的參與,共同完成這幅心感地圖。

In the work Mind Map, KUO I-Chen builds on a foundation of old aerial landscape photographs of Taipei and creates simulations of natural or man-made environments using reclaimed bottles and cans, sampling fabric, and various fabric scraps and waste materials from the manufacturing process.

The installation's focal point is an antique sewing machine positioned to correspond with the Tamsui River estuary, the recycled fabric symbolizes the flowing river that moves toward Taipei in counter-current, alluding to the memories that flow through different eras.

Using materials provided on-site, audience members can mark a location of their own within the map; a location that carries an important personal memory, or a spiritual home within the city. This Mind Map is completed through the participation of the audience.

Vangard1 先鋒計劃

複合媒材裝置 | Mixed media installation | 2021

L260 x W180 x H160 cm 

農耕車、收音機、電子琴鍵盤、14吋單體喇叭、綠藻發電裝置、人造衛星模型

Agricultural tractor, radio, electronic keyboard,14-inch single speaker, algae power generator,artificial satellite model

1958年第一顆使用太陽能電力的人造衛星先鋒1號(Vanguard1),在1965年後失去訊號報廢後成為漂浮在地球軌道上現存歷史最久的太空垃圾,隨著太空科技不斷地探索,太空垃圾的數量逐年遞增,各國也開始注重隨之而來的威脅,可能造成人類無法預見的太空災難。《先鋒計劃》將先鋒1號人造衛星透過生質燃料的綠藻發電裝置重新驅動,讀取並播放來自漂浮於外太空的聲音,裝置更結合各類型廢棄電器與農耕車,將能源循環與地球記憶產生連結,成為新一代大空能源放送站。

 

Vanguard 1, the world's first solar-powered satellite, was launched in 1958. Communications with the satellite were lost in 1965, and it has since become

the oldest surviving space debris still in orbit around Earth. As space exploration continues, the number of space debris continues to rise year after year. Nations around the world have also begun to pay attention to the threats that this may bring, which could lead to possible unforeseen space disasters.

This project, Vanguard 1, reactivates the Vanguard 1 satellite through the use of an algal biofuel power generator, and it plays sounds that are drifting in

outer space. The installation also combines various discarded appliances and an agricultural tractor, resulting in a new type of space energy transmission station by linking together resource cycling and memories of Earth.

錄像裝置、LCD面板、人類頭髮

W564 x H33 x L5 cm

不同尺寸面板所排列而成的長型黑色屏幕,在屏幕中央畫面顯示出的白光,透過色光的混色映照在畫面中央發出虹光的髮絲,頭髮作為人類有機體的延伸也隱含著集體意識的聯結,生活在大量高科技產品的數位軀殼中,人類從視覺經驗的「思考」逐漸轉化成視覺體驗的「觀看」,那些曾觀看螢幕的使用者,彷彿成為數位幽靈般被封存在那些再也無法顯影的損壞液晶面板,成為一個個無法穿越的黑洞,在影像的背後唯一能被穿透的是一道黑色的彩虹。
