存在/不存在
「存在」,是中外哲學家多年來一直愛討論的課題,相對於人類或動、植物等有機物,「人造物件」的那種「本質先於存在」就絕對是簡單得多了。每件人造之物,皆是先有其構思概念繼而被製造出來,也可說是,其存在之前便已被賦予了存在的意義。只不過,每件物件是否都如其製造者所願地發揮出它本身的功能?在盡過其「職責」以後,它存在的意義又是否跟著完結?
一天無意間在小巷中穿梭,發現內裡原來「存在」各式各樣的東西。它們大都是被丟棄,又或是被丟棄後尚得以勉強保存下來的。它們出現於此地的理由不一樣,下場亦不盡相同,卻又好像有著相近的命運與境況, - 一種被遺忘了的存在。 嗯,大概已沒有人再需要它了。 我拿著相機,嘗試以最原始的手法把它們都拍攝下來,沒有給它們擺好位置,也刻意不給它們仔細打上燈光,就只想以最直接與單純的方式,留下他們曾經存在過的證據。同時,也是屬於我存在過的證據。 Existence / Nonexistence
“Existence” has been a popular discussion topic among philosophers worldwide throughout history, while ‘Artifact’ has a much simpler definition as compare to human being or other living things, for its essence exists prior to existence. Every piece of artifact was created based on conceptual framework -- it was meant to exist before it even existed. However, does every piece of artifact function according to its creator’s intention? After it accomplished its mission, would the value of its existence be over altogether?
One day while walking through an alley, I saw that there are many things ‘exist’. They were mostly abandoned, or were barely saved after being abandoned. These things were there for different reasons, and with different endings Nonetheless, their fates & circumstances are similar - their existence were forgotten. Most likely nobody needs them anymore.I held my camera, trying to take shots with the most primitive approach, without staging or lightingbut simply proved their past existence as is.
At the same time, it also proved my own existence.
