His-Story


歷程


(2008)

Artist Statement


“His-Story” is an experience, You experience the space, you experience the history; You are creating the history while you are experiencing it. We pass through the history; we create the history. Through this experience, we may create a new history with other people or by ourselves. Thus, the others could experience our history. In “His-Story”, the movements of the audiences will be recorded. The recorded movements of the audience will be produce into a history by computer programming. A combination of images and texts will then be constructed and arranged. Once stepping into “His-Story”, the audience’ movements will influence the final result of “His-Story”: the arrangement of the visual and the text. The computer will record the audience’s walking-distance, their location and the time they walk and stand, and their distances between each other. A program will digitize the data and produce a combination of words and images. History is created.

藝術家論述


《歷程》是一個過程,
你於當中的空間遊歷、體驗並細味前人的歷史;
經過數位程序的運算,
你於這個空間裡對歷史的經歷,會化成一種人為的歷史過程。
在《歷程》 中,參與者(們)的行動會被記錄下來,
這些被記錄一舉一動,配合程序運算,就在創造歷史。
一段由影像和文字組成的故事就這樣被產生及重組。
從踏進《歷程》空間的那刻開始, 參與者(們)的行動就一直在影響《歷程》的最後結果 – 影像和文字的組合順序。
參與者走過的位置、停留與移動的時間、他們之間的距離等數據,
《歷程》都會把這些行動記錄下來並將之數位化 ,
然後在限時之內透過一連串的演算程序拼湊出一個順序。
最後,《歷程》就利用這個順序將影像和文字組成一個故事並展現出來。
