• The Journey of Water within Roses 水與玫瑰的旅程

    Video/Computer Animation  錄像/電腦動畫  1'40"  2013 This animation follows the same concept from “The path of water”. I also adapted many ideas from my oil paintings such as “The journey of water and the rose petal” and “Dancer in water”Roses are often regarded as the symbol of love. That’s what I intend to discuss in this piece of work. The animation starts with a floating petal and a road leading somewhere. The camera surfs through this rose like structure. Many water molecules transform into different forms during the journey. In the end, the camera dolly out to an overlook angle revealing that image consists of many similar rose structures. Then the camera dolly in the structure again. The journey is actually an endless cycle along the path. Love is blind. We often lose our sensible mind when we fall in love. It seems like within the rose structure that we can only see some elements or those items. We don’t see the overall picture until we pull ourselves out of the situation. But we often got attracted in this fantastic illusion over and over again. If water has its soul, it knew the cycle will end where it begins. Somehow it still embarks its indefinite journey for the sake of love. It's something magic, isn't it? This animation has been selected in the 3rd edition of MashRome Film Fest in Rome, It  is screening at the AraPacis Museum at June.2014 It has also been selected into Cologne OFF X – 10th Cologne International Videoart Festival, screening in Cologne, Germany and Athens Animfest 2015  ,screening in Athens, Greece. 這件作品延續著「水的路線」的相同觀念。我採用了幾件油畫作品的圖像例如「水與花瓣的旅程」等等來組成這件作品。玫瑰常被視為愛的表徵,這是我想在這件作品中表達的主題 動畫由一個漂浮的玫瑰花瓣和通向不知處的道路開始,在這旅程中許多的水分子變化成不同形式出現在畫面中。最後鏡頭倒推到一個俯視角度顯示出其實這是由許玫瑰組合而成的結構體。然後鏡頭又開始往下潛進這個重複的路徑,這個旅程其實是個在其中的無盡循環。 愛是盲目的。當我們戀愛時我們常常失去理智,就像在玫瑰結構中我們只能看到某些元素或成分。直到我們退到這個狀況的遠方我們才得以窺見整體的結構和全貌。但是我們不斷地被這個令人目眩神迷的幻象吸引著。正如同水如果有它自己的靈魂,它一開始就知道它會再度回到旅程開始的起點,它依然開啟其它無窮盡的旅途,全都是為了愛,這不是一件很神奇的事嗎? 本作品入選第三屆MashRome Film Fest,於2014年六月份在義大利羅馬的Ara Pacis Museum播放展出。也入選Cologne OFF X – 第十屆科隆國際錄像藝術影展在德國科隆市播放展出(2014)和雅典動畫影展在希臘雅典市播出(2015)。
