I walk along the border and feel the contradiction and peace between ocean and land. Ocean is supposed to be the origin of all things on earth, and yet it shows desolation and loneliness at the border between ocean and land. Here has withered trees, sands, and weeds but no lively vitalities. Here has nothing new but the visits of different people with different purposes.
I wander through the boundary of cities and feel the short silence at the fringe of the city. In a city, there should be bustling and busy atmosphere; however, I feel lonely and melancholy on the fringe of a city. The once of a time’s prosperity now becomes ruins and still stands and waits for someone’s care. The border of two cities seems lonesome, and yet sings of life and vitality are everywhere.
I come from a city where is ostentatiously prosperous and fast. I live and own a fast-paced life in this society where everything pursues efficiency and achievements. When I live in the city, I care about other people – how they look at me, how they think about me, and how can I compete with them? But at the border of city, I am just a passenger. No one cares about me or no one wants to know how I am going to enjoy the sun light and air here. At this moment, there is only me.
Through camera, I talk to myself while pretending I am a third party here and record scenes of the moment by images. The image does not necessary present the real scene but it does record the feel of the time while standing at the border. It is just like what JIANG Xun said in his work “Gu Du Liu Jiang”; he said “while standing in the crowd, we – should know it is about the time to start a new and sincere talk with ourselves.” Poet LI Bai said in his poem, “surrounded by flowers, I prepare a jar of wine and drink alone”; LI knew “loneliness” is a gorgeous self-adulation. In the “Heart Sutra”, there are sentences of “neither being produced nor destroyed, neither being defiled nor pure, neither increase nor diminish”, and every time when I read that I feel it is saying the purest loneliness. And I am now at the border, where belongs only to me, and using my own way to soliloquize by images.
When I read the photography book, the scenery in my mind, its image experiences impacted my thinking to create.
At the site of “YES, TAIWAN – 2014 Taiwan Biennial”, I spent the whole afternoon to watch art works, to think and to space out. In this art space that was filled with all different kinds of medium type creations, art pieces seemed all trying their best to promote their creators’ ideas and appeals, and so created slightly noisy and blinding feel. Until I walked to a long corridor at a corner, I was finally released and enveloped in a quiet and peace atmosphere. In the corridor here exhibited KUO Ying-Sheng’s creation of landscape photos around the world, naming” the scenery in the memory”. As a traveler walking around the world, KUO’s image used black and white color and coarse particles as his creative style. His art to present sceneries neither looked after hasty happiness nor considered as a record of visit to the site. On the contrary, by the tone that was similar to soliloquy, he held the same frame of mind and thoughts and steadily expressed his own emotions by catching the encountered things and scenes in different places and time. The vague and particle feel presented in the picture seemed to cover a life journey that just invited viewers explore.
Also, the exhibited “Landscapes ．Quietness” by TSENG Miin-Shyong at the same time summarized TSENG’s image creative journey, including his growth, struggle, and study. With also black and white creative style, his creations presented his personal whisper, philosophical thinking, and re-appearance of apprehension during his long creative road. Reading the book of “Landscapes ．Quietness” felt just like going through TSENG Miin-Shyong’s photography life. From his creation, we saw his own thinking and views in different periods. Over time, the photographical scenic images are further decorated with the decorous feel of life.
After sensing and thinking, I finally realize the indistinct belief and feel that I was trying to find in the past is just the decorous feel of life.
Reviewing my works from the beginning of my creative life till now, my works are always covered with additional feel of profundity and soliloquy. What I want to keep is not only the seconds of touching moment but also the life track we are standing on right now. The selected images, regardless pictures of still life or street shots, all have a quiet, grey, and blank feel; and this is just the presentation of decorous feel of life that I always hope to keep.
Now, I am still and will be continuously carrying out such creative thinking and presenting the sense of touching.
