發生過的事情會永遠停留在發生的片刻,永存於當下時空的切片,即便無人再見,無物可存,無聲可尋,無人再記、無人語論,分崩離析抑或面目全非;萬事萬物終將會迎來一次結束、一次衰敗,惟有當刻永恆不變,只有一次,亦僅有一次,就在那地存證,無力量可改變。

本作延伸我對於生命去留以及彌留於世的氣息之思考;在華人的習俗裡人們會焚燒祭品予先人,此種行為與儀式似是在提醒活著之人與過世之人間僅存的連結,同時也是一種特殊的溝通方式,貫穿了時間和空間;從另一方面也是在表達我們深刻相信親人朋友已經到達那個我們認知會永遠快樂、沒有病痛的世界生活、並永遠存在著。

 

What has happened will stay right there in that moment forever, in that slice of time. No matter if it’s not seen, not heard, not remembered, not said, nothing left, or even it’s become unrecognizable or has fallen apart, it will come to an end. Everything will decay eventually. Only that current moment will remain there eternally, for once, and only for once, it remains there firmly, and no force could ever influence it.

I want to convey my thoughts towards the ending of life and the breath left when life is gone. It’s a Chinese custom that people burn offering to ancestors. I believe that this is a way to remind the living ones that there are still connections between them. Penetrating through time and space, it’s a peculiar method of communication. On the other hand, it conveys the fact that we deeply believe that our loved ones have reached the destination and will be happy, painless, and exist eternally.
