『Angle-Fortune』 is a project started during my residency period in Seoul. First present in Seoul after residency in Jan. 2017, second time was shown in Tainan in Dec.2017. I saw a tourist ad of Baekdamsa Valley in subway, hundreds of taller than human stone-pile being stacked on the river bed for wishing luck, people raise it so high as if it goes higher more fortune they will get.

 

This kind of behavior exists in many places in the world; nobody knows how this ritual began. Maybe, to pile up stone is a primitive instinct of us want to interact with nature. But how I saw it was a geometry problem; therefore, I try to calculate the fortune of these stone-pile by analyzing the geometry. I 3D-scanned these stone-pile, then unfold the model into a drafting of triangles, measured and calculated the average shape of all. And compared it with an equilateral triangle, to see how far the central of the average triangle away from an equilateral triangle’s. Therefore, I sum up a suppose about angle and fortune?

 

In the other hand, I found granite bricks in Taiwan that has the similar texture to the stone-piles in Korea. I broke these bricks at will, then trimmed the debris to the approximate shape of a triangle, it's become another random modeling object that meets the context. And looks like a miniature mountain by using it as a paperweight. Another set of work“Pattern”, used the picture I took in the scene, with overlaying and blending process, become a compressed and abstract field record.

 

People have a human instinct for natural omen, we want to foresee the future thought the interaction with nature. The tediously measuring and calculating procedure become my own ritual. Even the final number compared with stone-piled seems to make no sense—just like everything recognized as the symbol of luck. The mysterious but spectacular of nature and the clear but inconspicuous of mathematics, both are believable and unbelievable, depends on one's obsessions.

 

The installation arrangement of the show in Taiwan was based on the idea of“(Un)fold.” I tried to re-ask how should a site-specified work inspired by the residency experience back to the place of departure. The used to be merged as one paper-craft now divided into parts as a metaphor of incomplete after leaving its original place. The once unfold drafting sheet now roll up and place inclined with the specified angle of the average triangle of this stone-pile model, turned the dazzle number into a physical-related structure. The“Pattern” present in a half-roll-half-scroll way as a comparison to the fully unrolled “Diagram.”

『角度-運氣』是去年在韓國首爾OCI美術館駐村期間所開始的計畫。首次於2017一月發表於首爾,2017年十二月再次發表於台南。在駐村期間,我偶然在地鐵轉車時看到了一則百潭寺溪谷的旅遊廣告—這是在雪嶽山國家公園中的一間古廟,廟前的河床上有數百座為了祈福許願疊起的石頭塔,直高過人彷彿疊的越高願望也越會實現。

這種疊石頭的行為存在於許多地方,但沒有人說得清楚是怎麼開始的。也許看到石頭就想把它疊起來只是一種人類跟自然互動時的原始衝動吧。然而在我眼中的疊石頭卻關乎幾何,於是我把石頭塔做了3D掃描;再將模型攤開為三角面圖,手工測量計算出一個平均三角形,將它和正三角型重疊比較兩者的重心差距。據此來得知構成這座石頭塔的三角面離完美有多少偏差,依此得出一份關於角度與運氣之間的假說?
 

另一方面,我在台灣找到了類似石頭塔材質的花崗岩地磚,在將他們隨機砸碎後將碎片修整到最接近的三角形。成為作品脈絡下的另一種隨機產生的造型物件,用作為圖紙的的紙鎮又另成一道小山景。另一組影像作品“Pattern”,則以在作品採集的現場拍攝的花絮影像做圖層的疊加調變,成為一種壓縮且抽象化的田野紀錄。


這些對石頭塔繁瑣的測量與計算過程成為我的另一場儀式,即使最終算出的一串數值與石頭塔之間看似毫無道理—如同所有被寄託運氣的事物。然而在人類的本能之中存在一種對於自然預兆的渴望,希求透過與之互動得以望穿未來。神秘壯觀的自然與明確卻低調的數學,兩者之間其實都可信也不可信,我們卻總會找到自己的執迷。

 

於台灣的展出,我試圖自我提問具有現地製作特質的駐村作品該如何回到出發地。於是我試圖以“ (不)拆封”去重新思考這件作品的裝置佈局。在韓國組合成一體的石頭塔紙雕以不合體的狀態暗示一種離開了地方後的不完整。原本攤開的分解圖也捲成圓管狀,並且依三角形的三個平均角度值斜放,讓分解圖中密密麻麻的數字直接化做可以用身體比對的結構。“Pattern”以半開半捲的披掛狀態,對照展場中唯一完全展開狀態的“公式圖”。
