As Well as Elsewhere 他方亦然

As Well as Elsewhere is an ongoing project forming during my business trips. 

Travelling around China, I am amazed by the similarity of hotel rooms. Even in remote villages these temporary residences share a sameness, an uncanny doubling which believe is an inheritance of the hospitality industry. 

Wandering into town after town I have never been to before, I stay in rooms that are not unfamiliar – or are they? By interacting with those spaces, I am aware of my journey to somewhere.

這組發展中的作品是在出差工作期間於下榻的旅館內拍攝。

即使到了郊區或鄉村,一定等級的旅館總有著相似的空間配置,而國際連鎖旅館自然更不在言下。花費長時間舟車勞頓,好不容易抵達目的地,一間間相似的房間卻隔離了陌生的文化、陌生的口音、陌生的人群,感到詭異之餘,一路上面對未知的緊繃神經竟也同時在這一方空間中放鬆下來。

多數因公下榻的旅館房間,未來大約都不會再回來了。我以遊戲的心情與空間互動,像在大宅中玩躲貓貓,試圖為短暫的棲居時光增添一點歸屬感。然而多數畫面仍然表達出我對這些房間的疏離感受。
