Settle from Time to Time (on going project)



Settle from Time to Time 於此安放的時光

Is time measurable? French-Jewish philosopher Henri Bergson said no to the question. In his point of view, the measurement of time, such as seconds or minutes, is merely a subjective idea rather than an objective, continuous existence.

Settle from Time to Time is an experiment exploring my personal relationship with contemporary domestic space, memory, and time. It started from a rental apartment I was temporarily settling in. Knowing I will leave one day, I tried to conserve my memories and time spent in it. Eventually, I found myself piecing different moments of my living space together with photographic images. Although it’s always in vain to measure time, time becomes the punctum in these two-dimensional pictures.

那年承租的房子有個採光良好的客廳。隨著季節變換,客廳裡的光影不再重現,於我而言,是時間在空間中留下的線索。當客廳逐漸成形,訪客來來去去,時間似乎不僅只流逝,同時也在空間中累積起來。我試圖拼湊於此暫時棲居之所共度的片刻,即使丈量是場徒勞,二維留存的畫面中,時間仍成為刺點。
