To be born, you exist in a well-established and -developed era. There are buildings, stores, roads, parks, people, images… Behind appearances, a great deal of isolated, every ideology or concept, is accumulated perspectives of knowledge and experiences from the past; on the other hand, it suppresses imagination beyond borders.

To wander in the daily routine, sometimes we encounter interest; sometimes we give up outmoded values. Information push people stepping forward like waves. Anxious paces being unstable to fall into billow it rolls. In the sea, is there no more pure land? To remember from memory and experiences, the surplus of emotional points, the paragraphs we cannot ignore. The current and the past create gap between new and old by the distance of minds recalling processes of speculation about remodeling, rumination, deduction, etc., to help oneself for settlement.

New and old; look at you; look at myself; I have been here.


當生下來的時候,已置身充分建設及發展的時代。那裡有建築、商鋪、道路、公園、人們、影像…… 表象背後,眾多被孤立的,每一個意識形態或概念,是前人知識與經驗累積成的視角,又同時壓制想像力超越邊界。

在規律的生活裡流離浪蕩,偶爾找上興趣;偶爾割捨過時的價值。訊息如浪推人步前,步伐急起來跌跌撞撞,一頭栽進浪濤裡翻滾。旺洋裡,是否再無淨土?從回憶與經歷中剩下情感的點記起,那些無法忽視的段落。當下與過去的思想距離造成新舊落差,喚起重塑、反芻、推演等思辨過程,為一己安身立命。

新與舊;看看你;看看自己;曾到來。
