DESCRIPTION (ENG)

In the space with high pedestrian flow in the city, there is full of delicate communication between people. Artist reconstructs the relationship upon the escalators and the story of people by 3 video channels abreast.

Different numbers of people, movements, and ups and downs are strewn at random through time and space. Strangers that never met are arranged to stare at and pass by each other in the overlapping space. This highlights the artist and audience, staying aloof but being in the story at the same time.

With a dramatic arrangement, the artist shows his imagination of the cityscape and reflection on interpersonal relationship in the public.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION (CHI)
(within to 1000 Characters/ please begin with http://  for artwork website link)
城市之中有許多高人流的空間。當中充滿了人與人之間的微妙交流。藝術家藉由並排三組凝視電梯的片段,重塑當中的人物關係。

不同人數和長度的停動、上落形成時空錯落。並未相遇並不相識的人在安排之下,於重疊的空間中曖昧對視,擦身而過。同時又突顯了旁觀的藝術家和觀眾,以孤獨的姿態冷眼旁觀但又置身其中。於戲劇性的鋪排下,藝術家展示了個人對城市風景的想像和公共空間中人際關係的玩味。
