藝術家論述

紙媒的封面是一封時代的圖畫,是一張共同創作的作品,由時代的美學、氛圍、歷史、人物拼湊而成,把某年月日的當下,以種種不同的手法創作而成。

《號外》的封面在書報攤中顯然是一幅獨特風景,它的尺寸和美學在這幾十年依然在萬亂的檔仔中鶴立雞群。作品《號外景像》(Landscape of City Magazine)把《號外》雜誌歷年499期的封面作一次史無前例的顏色分析,以平面四色印刷的標準CMYK作為分析基礎,將每一期的 CMYK - C(Cyan)青色、M(Magenta)洋紅色、Y(Yellow)黃色、K(Black) 黑色的數據排列出來,每一期的顏色分佈轉化成一道高低起伏的山脈風景,而499期集合而成的,就是歷年由《號外》所建構的時代風景,最後通過 3D 打印方法,從平面變成立體,是為《號外景像》。

2020 裝置版本展示由分析封面、顏色拆解、立體風景的構成到實體3D列印風景的整個過程。
