​風景的秩序

燈箱、素描紙本、貼紙

那物總被覆蓋著,我總是想撥開那些初始已存在的榕樹,闢出小徑走到榕樹之後,為風景定下次序。

 

The Order of Landscape

Lightbox, pencil on tracing papers, stickers

That object is always being obscured. I want to explore into the long-existed pagoda trees, walk through a path to the back of the pagoda trees and rearrange the order of landscapes.

我給你一副千里鏡

澳門風光走過雙程隧道,被收納在真假千金中的千里鏡內,隱含在林木中的小八角亭確切存在。從葉縫間漫出的光線,或在微塵無限折射身影,散佚在空氣中。

Through the two-way tunnels, the scenery in Macau was being collected by the binoculars in The Rich Girl and Her Double. The small Octagonal Pavilion, which was hid in the woods, actually exists. The diffuse light passed through the leaves, or being reflected repeatedly in the dust and finally faded in the air.

Ms. Wong's Pavilion in Mirage

Plexiglass boxes, papers, magnets and water

Dimension variable

Ms. Wong made up a story ── the chapter “Pavilion in Mirage” is about a big Octagonal Pavilion that never exists. That was all about the empty talks and rumors on the newspapers.

音箱

書立、擴音器、透明膠盒、銅片、桌球、磁石、牛油紙

如一個暗箱,收納四方八面的光波和音波;如紅海把公園一分為二,那突然闢建的家辣堂街,而南灣也被割裂於四百公尺外,成了湖泊不成灣。那佇立灣旁的榕樹被圈在安全島上,基座卻沒有賦予紀念碑式的意義。
 

Soundbox

Bookstands, speakers, plexiglass box, copper plates, snooker balls, magnets, tracing paper

The library is like a camera obscura, which collects the surrounding light waves and sound waves. The S. Francisco Garden, such as the Red Sea, was divided into two followed by the birth of Rua de Santa Clara. Praia Grande, where was four hundred meters away from the old coastline, was also divided, and later turned into a lake but no longer a bay. The pagoda trees were once standing along the bay, were encircled on the refuge island; but the concrete pedestals did not offer the significance as monuments.

我只找到幾張可「證明」大八角亭曾經存在過的圖片,那大多是彩色明信片,應該是以水彩在黑白照片手工著色後以繪圖風格發行的。這種插畫風格並沒有為被「斷捨離」的大八角亭增加(某一種)存在感。而原來真正在意這八角亭的人也曾以不同形式讓其存在於現世。如書中主人翁也願意出沒於大八角亭(感謝作者),還有香港大學音樂系的碩士生們對大八角亭的研究填補了這缺失的一角(八角) 。尋找大八角亭的路途仍未完結,它應該正躲在某個角落不願被找到,以懲罰殘忍的人們,或這樣才能成為我心中的神話。

I only found a few photographs that “proves” the existence of the big Octagonal Pavilion. Those photographs are mostly color postcards, which were probably hand-painted on top of the black and white photographs in watercolor. The illustration style does not evidently deliver a sense of (certain) existence to the imaginary big Octagonal Pavilion. The people who really care about the big Octagonal Pavilion have tried to present it  in different forms in order to maintain its existence in the world, such as the characters of the book are also willing to visit the big Octagonal Pavilion (thanks to the author); as well as the research on the big octagonal pavilion conducted by the post-graduates from the Music Department of the University of Hong Kong, which fills the research gap of the missing corner (the eight corners). The path to the big Octagonal Pavilion is yet to be completed; it should be still hiding at a secluded corner, unwilling to be found by the cruel people. This maybe the punishment for them, but at the same time it creates a myth for me.
