光是人類崇拜的對象,是世界的生命與靈魂,也是自然的主宰;在有光的地方,不再懼怕黑暗;光是數世紀以來,藝術家所追尋的想像,對光的描繪,以光感創作的影像,以光建構的建築中的崇高感,以光作為媒介記錄與看見影像,以光紀錄軌跡與影像,再現與塑造的世界。類比訊號時代,以光為媒材,「光」是主題表現的載體。

 

數位科技以「光」為介面,進行訊息的傳遞,透過編碼、傳遞、接收與解譯,更超越電子時代的類比「光」。類比訊號的「光」,電視開啟後,影像展現,電視關閉,影像消失;燈光開啟後,光照亮空間創造氛圍,呈現出魔幻沈浸感,此種類比訊號的裝置,關閉後,其所創造的景觀世界在人們眼前消失,然而,數位訊號透過裝置介面所呈現的光,展現的光,所開啟的世界,在裝置關閉之後,從真實世界中的人們眼前中消失,卻仍留存在虛擬世界的訊號當中,繼續成為世界的一部份。

 

子題二:光啟光滅的昏眩狀態|大觀藝術空間

 

光啟是一種儀式,通過光的啟動,虛幻舞台在光地閃動中出現,被喚醒的生命,是物件、是場景、是精神,光是建構與傳遞訊息的載體,進行生命訊息的轉譯,成為新的符碼訊息,傳遞展演的故事、情境,將存在轉化成為透過光所建構的訊息,在光滅之後,在人們視覺中消失的狀態,是一種假象的消失,存在於記憶與訊息空間中,成為永恆。

 

Humans worship light, which is the source of life and soul in this world as well as the sustaining force in nature. When there is light, there is no fear of darkness. For centuries, light has been the subject of artists’ quest. They depict light, utilize light sensitivity to create images, employ light to construct the feeling of sublime in architecture, use light as a medium to record and develop images, and document trajectories and images to represent and shape the world. In the age of analogous signals, light becomes a medium, a vehicle for expressing all subject matter.

 

Digital technology has its interface based on “light” to communicate signals, surpassing the analogous “light” of the electronic age with the encoding, transmission, reception and decoding of signals. The “light” of analogous signals shows images after a television is turned on; and when the television is turned off, the images cease to exist. When the light is switched on, a space can be lit up and an atmosphere created, producing a magical sense of immersion. Devices using analogous signals offer spectacles that disappear after the light is switched off. However, the light emitting from the interface of devices using digital signals opens up different worlds that remain in the virtual world, continuing being a part of the world even after their disappearance from the real world and in front of people’s eyes after the devices are turned off.

 

Subtopic 2: Vertigo from On and Off Light—DaGuan Gallery

 

“Light ON” is a ritual. Through turning on the light, an illusionary stage surfaces in the glistening light. The awakened life flows into the objects and scenes, manifesting spirituality. Light is a vehicle to construct and deliver messages, and translates the messages of life into newly coded messages, conveying stories and situations of the exhibition and converting existences into messages constructed through light. After “Light OFF,” the disappearance from the human sight is merely illusional, as what seems to have disappeared now exists in the space of memories and messages in a permanent way.
