《背面》在遠處發生,透過空間的隔層、縫隙的漏光與遠處稍低的天花板,像是記憶中藏了時光機囊的天花板,可以被窺看與想像;倚靠在牆面與角落的矽酸鈣板們,以榫接的方式彼此連接,在板子夾層中放入時間膠囊一書中的目錄文字、展場周圍樹種的種子、木球及21世紀的百科全書等,像是考古地層中裡的時間與線索被展現。

《背面》是我對於事物背後的好奇,天花板的上部、矽酸鈣板背後的日期等,一種過去的已知與未來的未知在這裡交匯;我以自已的時光,想像1939 年由西屋電氣公司所作的時間膠囊,裡頭細述了20世紀的我們,以各種大寫的我們描述了這個時代。我想以空間周圍的種子至時間艙的地理位置、時代的1939年到我的2012年,以個人的時間至時代的時間,考掘想像、期待、憂鬱、進步、勞動與溝通。

Far Side is an installation that refers to a distant place. The compartment, light streaming through gaps and the further lower ceiling grid construct the ceiling which is similar to the one holding the time capsule in my memory. This provokes our curiosities to peep through and imagine what’s over there. The piles of jointed calcium silicates panels leaning against walls and corners. The piles are cramming with objects, like a tablet carved with words replicated from the original catalogue in Westinghouse Time Capsules, seeds from trees around TAV, wooden balls and the  21th-Century encyclopedia. Therefore, the work turns into an archaeological site, and the traces of time and history are embodied in it like a deposit.

Far Side is developed from my strong curiosity toward the back sides of things, like the upper part of a ceiling or dates carved on calcium silicates panels, where, in other words, the past and the future are intertwined. Everything begins with myself, with my imagination about the Westinghouse Time Capsules in 1939. The time capsules chronicled life in the 20th century and portrayed this era with capitalized “WE.” From seeds gathering around the exhibition space to the location of the Westinghouse Time Capsules, from my 2012 to its 1939, I replace an era with a personal timeline, excavating imagination, expectation, depression, progression, action and communication.
