卜湳法器石 BUNUM

涂維政 Tu Wei-Cheng (1969-)

現在的未來? 我們如何「觀看」?觀看現在與未來? 如何「想像」?想像過去與將來? 當時間軸被瞬移至以後的以後, 種種的現況,將如何被詮釋?又會如何被定義? 藝術家涂維政自2000年開始,以水泥、石膏、泥土、人造石等材質,建構出卜湳文明。作品〈卜湳法器石〉以人造石媒材創作,為6件大大小小的方形石塊,各個石塊正面以手工雕刻,採高浮雕分別呈現計算機、手機、滑鼠、讀卡機、電玩遊戲手把等科技物件,石面上雕刻著以該物件照片轉換而成的亂碼文字,並刻意以殘缺、仿舊、泥土、磨損的方式營造「歷史出土文物」的古老氛圍。作品創作概念主要來自於涂維政對於資訊文明與生活之間的觀察,擁有這些物件就如同法器一般,可以自由操控虛擬世界中的一切。 The Future of Now? How do we see things? How do we see the present and the future? How do we imagine things? How do we imagine the past and the future? If we fast forward the time to the future of the future, how will everything in the present be interpreted and defined? TU Wei-Cheng has been creating this Bunum Civilization with cement, gypsum, earth, and artificial stone since 2000. BUNUM consists of 6 artificial hand-made square stones, carved in the shapes of calculator, mobile phone, mouse, card readers, video game handles, and other technological objects. The stone surfaces were engraved with garbled text converted from the photo, which deliberately made them seem incomplete, dusty, and worn just as how historical relics are when excavated. This piece is based on TU Wei-Cheng’s observation of information civilization and life, these objects resembling artifacts that can control the virtual world.
