《移動記 II :台灣,America》 (Travel Book II : Taiwan, America)

2004, I went to Chile, Peru and USA for 176 days.
This is the reproduction of my travel sketch book.

My road comics.

Statement:

Interested in preserving the duration of memory, I use books to be the carrier of my creations; through the characteristic of page flipping, showing the movement of time and space, resulting in continuous dynamic imagination.

The motivation of my travel is to fulfill the image creation mode with books as the carrier, through the moving of the real body, trying to let my real life imitate my duration of memory.

On the road, I opened my book and accumulated my strokes page by page. Pages carry the fragments of time, page flipping creates the flux of becoming, books show the duration of the entire life.

"Creative journey" is really intended to let the external journey imitate the internal imagination. However, the state of travel itself also lets the creator in contact with unexpected strong stimulation. Experience of these incidents will not disappear overnight. After a long period of precipitation, memories of the last trip will become the base of the next trip; reality and imagination will imitate and promote each other.

Through the mode of growth and stacking, repetition and extension to structure the image. Intend to show a spiritual depth instead of the virtual image of three-dimensional distance. Frames in the pages show the sequences of time and space; montage the complex, staggered time and space to express dreams and memories.

The binding forms of the carrier become the visual elements throughout the entire artwork; the spread of the book is the moment now, the left pages link to the past and the right pages undertake the future.

熱衷於保存記憶的綿延狀態,於是選擇以書冊為創作載體;透過書頁的翻頁特質,呈現時空的轉移,造成連續性的動態想像。

旅行的動機是為了成全以書冊為載體的圖像創作模式,透過身體的真正移動,讓真實生活模仿記憶的綿延。

在旅途中,翻開書冊,逐頁累積筆觸。書頁承載了片段時刻,翻頁造成變化之流,書冊呈現生命整體的綿延狀態。

「創作之旅」確實意圖讓外部旅程模仿內部想像。然而,旅行狀態本身,同時也讓創作者不斷接觸意料之外的強烈刺激。這些意外的經歷並不會隔夜就消失;經過長時間沈澱,上一段旅行的回憶,成為下一段旅行的基底,現實與想像互相模仿、交互推進。

透過生長與堆疊、重複與延伸的模式來結構畫面。意圖以心靈空間深度取代三度空間距離的虛像。書頁中的分格,呈現對於純粹繪畫過於複雜的時空序列;以蒙太奇手法並置複雜、交錯的時空,表現夢境、回憶的特質。

創作載體之裝訂形式,成為貫穿整本書冊的視覺元素;書冊被攤開的雙頁即是當下,對於左翻書而言,左頁聯繫著過去,右頁承接未來。
