DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Sometimes, I feel my hands are tied on things with Ann Eilathan.
Her eyes fix on a tiny spot of dust. I suspect if she could see the micro-organisms or dust floating in the air, and if her eyes are telling about her grief or calm- ness? It's hard to tell.
Perhaps she has swapped her face with a doll in the department store.
Outside the box, collapsing into chaos, blood down- flowing, mind confused, heart trembled and chest tightened every so often; but her appearance making remains calm. She tells me that her soul has

long gone, distraction is normal. Mouthing a pulpy pudding, by then she realizes that the dry pan,whom trying to confuse blue with green, was sneezing and burning on the stove. Before she could take a breath, her mind drifts away again.
Evidently, she is suffering from distractibility.
I could only introduce the “Slow-So TV” to Ann. It did not attempt to get any broadcasting license. It is only an underground TV channel. No, it is a set of video installation, with all kinds of programmes on air at all times, boring country sceneries, oceans of the south from the old days, reporter without a voice, recipes for anorexia, a DIY birthday cake... nothing special. She starts watching with full attention, waiting for surprises, or peeping on something. Her gaze entangles with that of the monitor, both staring at one another. Her eyes are not empty anymore, sometimes they look weak, while sometimes there is hope.
Tranquilly distracted again, she then switches the channel.

對於安.伊莉亞森的事,有時候我感到愛莫能助。
眼珠定在微塵中某一點,我懷疑她能看到空氣飄浮 的塵埃及微生物, 透露的情緒是哀傷還是平靜?說不 清所以來。
或許她曾跟百貨公司中的塑膠娃娃換個表情。
盒子外崩壞紛亂,混沌不明的,血液灌流下降,思 緒紊亂不定,隔斷的心悸胸悶,表象卻仍是一片平 和,她卻告訴我魄魂老早外遊,分神是常態, 吃一 口稀爛的布甸之後,才發現那指綠為藍的鐵鍋乾燒 ,發出吱吱不斷的怪叫聲。連下一個呼吸還未及完 成,思緒又飛走了。
表面證供顯示,她患上分神癥。
漫慢電視,頻道X:Rice,Rice,Rice, 擷取影像, 2015-2016
我只能介紹她安裝「漫慢電視」,它沒有嘗試申請廣播牌照,它不過是一個地下電視臺。不,它其實是 一組錄像裝置,各式各樣內容不一的節目不斷播放,百無了賴的田野風光,昔日南國的海、說不出聲的 報導員、厭食食譜、生日蛋糕自家做......沒事兒。她開始看得出神,靜待著有甚麼出奇不意的東西來臨, 又或是監視甚麼,眼光跟屏幕糾纏,與之對望,她的眼光變得不再空洞,有時候顯得軟弱無力,有時候 卻又會透出一線希望。
淡淡然分神了,就轉個臺。
