DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Sixty seconds to wither is a video work counting down with 60 seconds with the wither of a rose. 61 drawings composed this video, the rose is withering, the petals are dropping, the drawings are in fact in the reverse order from blossoming to bud. With the absent of life, the flash back to it existence is always tempting. When the counting is going from 16th to the17th second, the frame is not successfully processed. It shows “loading” for 10 seconds, the petals stop dropping, 10 seconds of delay for the withering of the rose, and at the same time 10 seconds were disappeared in my life. The video looped, I was counting 1 to 60 carefully, but still 10 seconds vanished in every 60 seconds loop.

〈六十秒的枯萎〉中,由一秒數至六十秒,畫面上是一朵玫瑰呈現枯萎的六十一張素描,其實那是倒序播放玫瑰由綻放至花蕾的過程,生命的畫面為何在消逝後倒序著追塑回來突別動人?中間有十秒的錄像像被卡著不能順利運行,那是時針停濟不前的十秒,我就藉機把玫瑰的枯萎延遲了十秒,也就等於有十秒從自己的生命中溜走。錄像循環地播放,每六十秒中總有十秒不知在哪裡蒸發掉,但我確實數著一至六十。
