“Motives for. Remembering,” the 2nd book launch conversation for Our Manifestos 2: Videography, Documentary Impulses took place on-line 28 May. The conversations continue as Natalie Chao wrote to Linda Lai after her postscript with Zach McLane, this time, delving into how our body remembers and why manifesto-writing will not be obsolete. … 「錄像宣言2」新書發佈會2 — 網絡研討會『為何要記住』5月28日在據點舉行。繼 Zach McLane 傳來研討後記，另一位年青影像創作人趙芷妮又透過電郵與黎肖嫻進行跟進討論，想起身體如何記住，為何還要寫宣言。

眼前的一切像多年的堆積，與之共存的是看不見的已被拆毀的家族過去的小節的餘韻。說到家族，也不是家國大族的堂煌，而是一張具體的網，連接、輸送、維繫，有個物理的據點。據點藝術家劉清華的「田野」訪談，拖出了「生存」的問題。如何活？我們如何從過去走到當下？過去的可以延伸下去，因為我們記得，而且還（用方法）記住。A community art project opens the door to a street of rich family stories in To Kwa Wan (Kowloon) for FP artist Jess Lau, thus also an old family story she has not dared to touch until now. Unlike tycoon stories of a growing empire, ordinary family stories are full of “holes” irreparable yet holding together those who refuse to forget.

Permanent youthfulness — a thought of no comfort at all! No certainty about the words I have, but those moments spent with Joey, a lasting imprint. Combining Joey’s writings she had shared in class with faint, ineffectual words I could barely utter, I post this buried poem today as a ritualist container for infinite nothingness. 這首詩是由我的文字和陸姵妏生前在我的文字創作工作坊裏分享過的作業的片段混合而成的。在黃花綠影之間虛實無分，是一個人？兩個人？多少種心情？精神思想記憶都漫飛無涯，涓湧成氣。除此，我對她的思念無以啟齒。十七年過去了，比我先行的學生還有幾個。…我總是為過去了的人寫詩。懷緬詩注定就是跟死亡手牽手的。奈何。
