此系列作品针对空间现地製作,欲对观众于公众展览现场的视觉经验进⾏讨论。⼀个主要议题就是摒弃通过媒体作为宣传渠道,去除以照⽚拍摄来观看并分享展览作品的⽅式。同样的⼿法都利⽤灯光装置的频闪只同步与展览现场的实时摄像机快门的特性,⽆法通过拍照⽚和拍录像来拍摄记录,因此该作品是⽆法通过照⽚来完整的传达作品的全部。在Annex项目空间中所展⽰的作品也是如此,观众需⾛进作品才能完整的感受光影的变化,与作品产⽣互动来发现此项目的微妙之处。

⼀⾛进⼤堂,观众会发现两个分隔的空间,艺术家为《光的背⾯-影》这件作品设计出⼀条狭窄的通道,打着⽩⾊灯光廊道的尽头设置着⼀台屏幕。当观众⾛近屏幕发现⾃⼰被架设于后⽅的摄影机所拍摄,⽽看似监控系统的屏幕上,出现的是艺术家透过对灯光频率设定所产⽣光线的变化,廊道依然是灯管打出亮⽩⾊的空间⽽萤幕却⼀直不断的由亮转暗,给⼈⼀种迷惘的错觉。

This new body of works aims to investigate and interactively challenge how the audience experiences exhibitions in public venues. Feng Chen invites the public to enter a disorienting space and to abandon conventional ways of sharing our encounter with an artwork. The project is based on the premise that, when confronting a multimedia work, ordinary cameras might be unable to fuel the same emotional response to it as the human eye does, and mostly fail to emulate the on-site perception. The installation encourages us to be in the space and connect to the work, feeling how subtle changes of light, color and shadow affect our cognitive visual experience.

The artist has divided the main hall of the office building into two separate rooms. A bright light captures our attention from far and leads us to the first room: a narrow aisle with two symmetrical rows of LED lights and a monitor hanging at the far end. The monitor is facing us and it shows at first glance the same scene that our eyes are seeing. After a puzzling walk into the space, viewers realize that they are being recorded real-time by a camera. Our sense of privacy feels challenged as if a monitoring system is tracking our whereabouts. Feng Chen creates a further layer of illusion by manipulating the transmission of frequencies between the camera and the lights: We are in a space where white LED lights shine brightly in the hallway, but we see ourselves recorded on the screen in a space that alternate from bright to dim. The artist uses technology to trick the human eye and raise the question: is seeing really believing?
