你停留在上一秒之後,你的期望是結果之前。在已知和未知之間的空隙想著下一秒會發生的事,流盪,與未知的事進行互動,提出發問,又等待回答。

好奇的人,你看著背面想著正面,反之亦然。拍攝者和你的提問相互滾存,然後是你的慾望在作出抉擇,或,是拍攝者挾著你的慾望所給你的抉擇?

 

On the immediate aftermath of the last second you are anticipating what may come before the final ending. In the crevice between what’s known and what’s unknown, you ponder, “What’s next?” You wander and linger, interacting with events yet to be known. One question falls in the light of its answers, another question arises.

Oh curious people… You are looking at this side thinking what’s on the flip side, and vice versa. The questions the makers have in mind and those in yours interrogate one another. Your desires drive you to make out what it is you’re looking. Or is what you make out always already prescribed in the maker’s scheme against your desires?

Why? Why Not? 為何?又如何?》

我在逼迫自己,我在逼迫你。
你在期待甚麼,為甚麼你有所期待?
是影像的道德,是影像敍事的道德,是我的道德,還是你的道德?
又為甚麼要在乎?

I am compelling myself. I am compelling you.
What is it that you are expecting? Why do you have such expectation?
Is this about the ethics of videography, or of narrativity? My morality, or yours?
And why do you care?

 

A Hundred Doubts

A Hundred Doubts 一百個懷疑》
Billy NGAI Pui-Yin 魏沛賢
Hong Kong | 2015 | Color | 21’10” | Sound |

探索作品與人之間互動的可能性,以純問題的討論形式,邀請參與者成為主動的觀眾(Active Audience),以觀賞經驗為主軸,內容為副,思考啟發性(Inspiration)、期望(Expectation)與潛在的(Hidden)三者之間跟互動性(Interactivity)的關係。

<A Hundred Doubts> explores the possibility of interaction between artworks and their beholders by a direct questioning discussion format. It invites the viewers to be “Active Audience,” subjugating the content of a work to viewers’ experience. My work seeks to understand the place of inspiration, expectation and potentiality (what’s hidden) in constructing interactivity.
