Since in the past years, talking about the scenery of the cities become more and more alike and started to question the immotile social level in capitalism. Old buildings and infrastructure being demolished, leaving two or three behind to remind us for the old days. All around us are enterprise economy. It is hard to breath with only narrow crevices between the skyscrapers. More and more new products are incorporating into supermarkets and chained stores, making them the samples of consumption habits and standard.


自年前為活化廳籌辦的「殺到油麻地」展覽創作了「今《東京夢華錄》」探討總體城市景觀漸趨一致的議題,因而開始對資本主義內難以動搖的社會層級提出質疑。

眼看全球一體大潮流令舊區面臨現代化進襲,無可奈何地赴隅頑抗。一個接一個社群消亡,充其量保留兩三棟建築物作歷史見證,周邊是效率型企業經濟,抬頭看,各樓頂高聳處擠出一道天空的裂縫映照地下瘦窄的道路,都叫人無法喘息。

超市及大型連鎖店不斷引進新產品成為購物的主要場所,也養成樣辦的消費習慣及指標街道與店鋪的關係像模版四處可見,行走街頭經歷文化的意趣終轉變為櫥窗欣賞旗艦店相互串連,是潔淨、一塵不染的文化氛圍,更鼓勵遊走室內空間,外頭卻是毫無意義的行進過程。

本計劃會前往不同超市及大型連鎖店內拍下其擺設,照片裡並不顯露商店名字以反映其植根的普遍認知,最後以實物原大輸出掛於小店落閘後的外面。
