人類觀察

柯智偉多媒體藝術展

Human Observation

Os Wei Multimedia Art Exhibition

《人類觀察》是柯智偉(Os)長期的影像實驗計劃,這次展出的作品以相片為主,喜歡以雙脚作交通工具的他,走到不同角落,以自我的眼光去觀察周圍,隨心用手機作紀錄,近乎是直覺式的拍攝,這種本能的攝影方式,可說是人人都是攝影師的佼佼者。於台灣讀影像專業的Os,拋棄固有的攝影技術,大部分作品都是手機隨拍,人物、自然及建築,這些看似互不相干的題材,就是他內心的視覺傳達,他看這個世界,看澳門這個地方的主觀意識,也是圍繞他生活及工作的內容,透過觀察別人,發現人類是一種奇特的動物,總是以服飾、表情、行為及動作傳遞著訊息,在澳門這個多樣性的城市,人們碰撞出各種生活型態,孕育出人與人之間近距離卻陌生的關係,是屬於這片土地的獨有色彩。這次整理出這幾年來對人類觀察的紀錄,以一百多張的相片,佈滿展場空間,不規則的放置,那是Os的影像片段,夢幻又寫實。另一錄像作品是將影像動態化再配以音樂,而音樂作為整個展場的背景聲音,把視聽拼湊在一起,把主題更深層次的帶出來。

展覽以這個概念延伸出影像裝置,一入展場以鏡面與觀眾來個照面,透過這麼直接的方式,隱閉地將每個入來展場的人監視下來,再透過背後的視像傳達出來,這種默默被監視的情況越來越普及,一方面出於人的安全感,另一方面出於人的不安全感,彷彿二元對立是人類的命數,不同時代會造就不同的對立方式。

英國劇集《黑鏡Black Mirror》希望以劇集探討人類與科技的關係,如是者,每集故事都由科技出發,主角往往享受科技帶來的便捷,卻又承受科技帶來的惡果。其中一集講大部份人會選擇置入記憶體,把眼球作鏡頭,所有用眼看到的景象會儲存,可以拿出來翻閱或作證據,這種極致的自我監控方式,或許不久就會實現。Os作為視覺影像紀錄者,正正以當下的科技,呈現最真實的現象。

Human Observation is a long-term image experiment project by O CHI WAI (Os). This exhibition features his photos from the project. The artist likes walking across different corners in the city, observing and recording at will the surrounds with a smartphone. Shooting photos in an intuitive way, he may be a top gun in the group where ‘everyone is a photographer’. Educated in visual communication design in Taiwan, Os abandons conventional photography techniques, and most of his photographic works were taken with a mobile phone at whim, on themes such as figures, nature and buildings. The works, although on subjects unrelated to one another, convey his inner feelings through visual media. He looks at the world, at Macau people’s subjective consciousness, with a focus on daily life and work. Observing others, he found that man is a strange animal, always sending messages with dressing, facial expressions, behaviors and movements. In Macau, a city of diversity, various lifestyles co-exist after centuries of interaction among peoples from different cultures, creating a close yet strange relationship between individuals, which is typical of Macau. This exhibition, combing Os’s records from Human Observation in recent years, shows more than 100 photos all around the exhibition space - placed in a disorderly way. They constitute image fragments of Os, dreamy yet realistic. Also on display is a video work converted from images and then set to music which serves as the background sound for the whole exhibition venue. This way, the artist pieces together audio-visual elements to bring out the theme at a deeper level.

The exhibition then introduces the video installation by extending this concept. A mirror confronts visitors once they enter the venue. In such a straightforward way, each exhibition goer’s activities on the site will be monitored and shown through visual communication behind scenes. This type of invisible surveillance is becoming more and more popular, on the one hand because of man's need for sense of security, on the other hand sense of insecurity - as if binary opposition was rooted in humans, appearing in different forms in different times.

The British TV series Black Mirror explores the relationship between man and technology, with each episode revolving around technology. The protagonists usually enjoy conveniences brought by the technology but will end up suffering from the negative consequences from using it. In one episode, most people choose to implant memory chips, using the eyeballs as lenses to record all the scenes beheld and archive recorded footage for future reading or use as evidence. Such extreme self-monitoring may soon become a reality in humans. Os, as a recorder of visual images, is precisely presenting the most authentic, real-world images with the latest technology.
