面对资讯爆炸的网路时代,各种讯息在无国界、无时差的条件下便捷地传递着,身处于庞大资讯的洪流中,不论文字、影像或声音,随时都在型塑某种观念,而属于网路世代的人们,又该以何种判别方式去建构个人的阅读经验?又或者如何在虚实交叠的世界里,定位个人的价值观?  

 

庄培鑫近年来的作品聚焦于真实与虚构间的转换和延伸,尝试探讨当代社会与网路世界相互影响后,所产生变异的观念意识。此次个展「如果在适当的条件下」,他汇集了大量且无章序的网路资讯,主观地组织讯息样貌,并邀请观众感受科技聚集下所散发的不舒适感。

 

「如果在适当的条件下」以两个部分并行述说,分别是叙事录像和讯息雕塑。庄培鑫运用网路共享影片重组、拼贴出三段短篇剧场,一幕幕的山林景致递送出深远宁静的气氛,同时他将影片原文透过google中文翻译成贯穿内容的重要文本,并搭配旁白,平和地述说这段看似深奥优美的文字。然而,熟知翻译工具的误差解构了原文的每个片段,虽然整体形式饱含诗意,逻辑却无法通顺,失能的字句不停出现在影片中,产生阅读上强烈的断裂感。艺术家巧妙利用科技(翻译工具)尚未发展完全而导致「错位」的文字,重新与图像、录像串联出一部部当代奇景,试图冷静地呈现这吊诡的资讯经验,并诱发观者对影片讯息的后续想像。  

 

在动态影像之外,庄培鑫设置了多件扭曲的压克力立体雕塑,每一件作品如布幔般凹折、扭转,或竖立或垂挂于展场之中。雕塑表面堆叠的网路图像虚实不分,皆呈现破碎与混乱的状态,各式的视觉记忆充斥其中,艺术家冀望观者能在作品皱折中,找寻遗失的故事碎片。

 

科技与人性的互动一直存在着可议论之处,而世界的进步不断提醒人们思考两者的界线,庄培鑫消弭了数位、实体交叠的痕迹,借此点燃观看方式的激辩。 「如果在适当的条件下」像一座迷宫,每一个路口的选择都将影响着出口的方向,亦如我们面对资讯,任何方式的解读也都将造成迥异的意识养成。

 

With the explosion of information in the age of the Internet, all kinds of messages are easily communicated swiftly and conveniently in the absence of borders and without time differences. In this massive torrent of information, whether it is text, images, or audio, for us members of the Internet generation, what method of discrimination should we use to build a personal reading experience? Or how should we position our personal values in a world where truth and lies overlap?

 

In recent years, Pei-xin Chuang's works have focused on the transformation and extension between real and fictitious, and have attempted to explore the conceptual awareness of disassociation produced by the mutual interactions between contemporary society and the world of the Internet. In this solo exhibition, 'Under Right Circumstances', he brings together a large amount of unclassified Internet information, subjectively organizes the appearance of the messages, and invites viewers to feel the discomfort brought about by the collection of technology.

 

The two parts of 'Under Right Circumstances' which are related separately and in parallel, are narrative video and information sculpture. Pei-xin Chuang utilizes the Internet to share the reorganization of videos, bringing out a collage of three short plays. A series of landscape scenes delivers a far-reaching tranquil atmosphere, while at the same time he puts the original translation of the film through Google Translate to translate the Chinese, making an important text which runs through the content, and then adds narration, narrating this seemingly esoteric and beautiful text in a moderate and unaffected tone. However, due to the erroneous deconstruction of each fragment of the original text carried out by this well-known translation tool, although the overall form possesses a poetic quality, its logic is incoherent, failed words and sentences appear continuously throughout the film, resulting in a powerful sense of breakage in the work's reading. The artist makes ingenious use of a not yet completely developed technology (the translation tool) to lead to a 'dislocation' in the text, which is re-linked together with imagery and video to produce an extraordinary view of the modern age, attempting to calmly convey this bizarre and paradoxical information experience, and thus set in motion the subsequent imagination of viewers towards the message of the video.

 

Apart from dynamic imagery, Pei-xin Chuang has installed a number of twisted acrylic three-dimensional sculptures. Each piece has deep folds like a cotton curtain, and has been twisted, erected or hung in the exhibition. The Internet images stacked on the surface of the sculpture are a mixture of virtual and real-world images, all demonstrating a broken and chaotic state, and they are replete with all kinds of visual memories. The artist hopes that the viewer will be able to find the fragments of lost stories in the creases and folds of the work.

 

There have always been aspects of the interaction between technology and human nature worthy of debate, and the progress of the world continually reminds people to think about the boundaries between the two. Pei-xin Chuang has eliminated the traces of overlap between the digital world and the real world, and used this to ignite debate on the method of viewing. 'Under Right Circumstances' is like a maze; the choices taken at every intersection will affect the direction towards the exit, and as we face information, any method of interpretation taken will also induce the development of a totally different consciousness.
