由手作筆記上的樓梯雛形開始,再放到電腦上計算畫出精準的草圖,最後製作出作品:《Last Walk on Thirteen Streets》(右圖)。JIM_20160727_藝術家Kenny Wong_065JIM_20160727_藝術家Kenny Wong_067

The work combines the fragments of ideas of the artist about his identity, collective memories and the a recursion beyond real and virtual space, or reality and dreams.

Shot in the Thirteen Streets area in To Kwa Wan in Hong Kong, four customised kinetic LCD panels that incline randomly will be placed on the stairs of the gallery, and will show a continuous loop of a man endlessly walking down a flight of stairs but never reaching the bottom. The random movement of the screens gives the illusion of the man’s descent down the stairs, as well as interpreting the “the drop” when we imagine to go downstairs in dreams.

 

樓梯上的機械錄像裝置

樓梯,微電腦,定制軟件,LED 屏,螺線管,微控制器,定制電子,鋼鐵,數字視頻

這項作品融合了藝術家對於自身的身份,集體回憶, 於真實和虛擬空間,現實與夢想間循環的零

碎思想。

錄像在香港土瓜灣的十三街拍攝,四個特制的機械動態LED 屏隨機傾斜, 被放置在畫廊的樓梯,

顯示一個男人不斷地落樓梯,但從未能到達底部。 影像使人們產生不斷落樓梯的幻覺,以及用機

械運動在聯像我們在睡夢時意外跌失足於梯級間的感覺。
