Linda Lai / Curiosity of a young mind from 1999

Linda Lai / Curiosity of a young mind from 1999

/ Linda Lai I have been spending quite a bit of time digging up hidden waste to turn them into treasures for the Floating Projects — from my home, from my office, from my work studio… Happy to see the circulation of furniture and books and re-purposing of things accumulated through time. Last week, I […]

Evelyn Char / 恩寵、剝落、熄滅(四段之一)

/ 查映嵐 (Evelyn CHAR) (i) 你是此生最美好的恩寵(當時我沒有發現),我或非你最愛之人, 但你的小身體,始終慷慨,可以無止境地給予,在你那裡沒有傷害,只有最深最純粹的,兩個生命體之間的交通。但這樣的恩寵被沒收了,如是我流落在這個荒野般的現世,再也沒有倚靠與憑藉,再也沒有歸去的處所。我獨自在這世上,失去恩寵的世界, 只剩下無止盡的黑暗,那是一個沒有光、沒有風、沒有水的星球,我衣不蔽體,只能在那裡承受並等待,接續而來的傷害。

Vanessa Tsai / 古人身邊都是寶 Lost simplicity

蔡季妙輕嘆:「古人的沒錢真好!因為沒錢,總是想盡辦法好好利用身邊所有可以用得到的一草一木。」Tai Chung-based writer Vanessa Tsai noted, “People in pre-modern days might not enjoy the material abundance we do, but they certainly had many more ideas how to maximize what is available around them to make things work.”

Winnie Yan / 那管只淨下我一人站在白牆前拿著紙筆咬手指 – 記於藝評與創作中的浮遊

Winnie Yan / 那管只淨下我一人站在白牆前拿著紙筆咬手指 – 記於藝評與創作中的浮遊

廢紙箱又被堆滿了。「我寫不到。」反反覆覆地翻閱自己看Birdman後寫下的筆記,總覺得無論怎麼寫也是徒勞無功,寫出一段又一段自相矛盾的段落。儘管讀過Raymond Carver的書,察覺到當中那如從未停止拍攝的鏡頭,鼓聲、空間處理等諸如此類的技術細節,但即使我把這些元素都歸納總結好,so what? 那就可以令人感受到我在觀賞時得到的那種莫名奇妙的感覺嗎?我覺得那部電戲需要去看,去自我感受,既然我寫不出那種令人閱後有立即要去一看究竟的衝動,自己的討論又可能只停留在技巧的層面周旋的話,這就像自打嘴巴,告訴人家自己沒認真地去思考一些電影想引申的其他訊息。
