​爆炸、折射、發散

Bursting, Refracting,Diverging

陳婉宜  吳聯吟 CHEN, WAN-YI x WU,LIAN-YIN

「瘟疫X爆竹X沖天炮X蜜蜂X城門X安全帽X宗教信仰X歷史X口罩…」腦中閃過種種超連結式的關係,從前關公吩咐的第一聲爆炸開始就不斷在演進,每個過程的改變都是一種折射,並且發散成為下個階段,烽炮演化過程充滿創造力又曲折離奇,不斷的突變,是為了延續傳承的精神,即使月津港的風景改變,河道仍是潺流著溪水,依舊綿延不絕,就像鹽水人對於自己文化的熱愛永續不斷。

“plague X firecrackers X fireworks X bees X the city

gate X safety helmets X religious beliefs X history X face masks.” The beehive firecrackers have evolved over time since the beginning under the order of Guan Gong. “Refraction” happens throughout the evolution process, while it reshapes the next phase of explosion in a creative and unexpected way. Then we came to realize that continual mutations are meant to keep traditions alive. Even the scenery of the port has changed over the years, the stream still flows through the channel, just as people in Yanshui love their culture and want to keep them alive forever.

With a focus on three core concepts: “Bursting, refracting, and diverging,” this series of works are not only a bold effort to interpret the display of beehive firecrackers, but as a metaphor for cultural development, which starts with linear progress and ends with eruption. In the end, a unique cultural tradition is thus born out of an intertwining of real and virtual worlds.
