在9697分鐘內,用銼刀把一張方形的銅板挫成圓形,最後再將圓形拓印紀錄下來。9697同樣是台灣到比利時的距離公里數,這整個行為把它當作是一個虛擬的新聞在報導。藝術家企圖將版畫的製版步驟,轉化成另一種意義活動。

A metal file is used to file down a square copper plate into a circle in 9697 minutes. 9697 is also a number in which is the distance from Taiwan to Belgium. This event is written as news. The circle is finally rubbed and printed as a record. The artist attempts to transform steps of printmaking into a meaningful action.

把一張銅板放入腐蝕液(凹版畫的技法之一),紀錄其過程變化。

 

It is a video documentary of the plate undergoing an acid bath (an intaglio technique in printmaking) to record its incremental changes.

這是一個與影印機合作印版畫的實驗計畫。整個過程如遊戲競賽在進行,Printer V.S Printmaker,當影印機印出一張拳頭印影像,隨後Printmaker則在同一張紙上,蓋上自己的拳頭印,共100張,以此來談論人工印版與機器印刷的差異性。

It is an experimental project. A printmaker takes the everyday object – a printer – to incorporate it into the printmaking process. The whole process as a game to demonstrate the differences between a printmaker and a printing machine.

每天拿同一張銅板,做磨板、挫板、擦板、印板動作(凹版的製作步驟),把它當作是日常刷牙洗臉般的例行公事, 一段時間後, 那會顯現什麼?

 

A copper plate was repeatedly etched, engraved, rubbed, and printed (basic steps of intaglio printmaking) every day – as routine as getting up and brushing teeth. What will those present in the end?

如果我像機器般,對同一個版進行重複印製動作,約每15分鐘印一張版畫,並持續24小時,那會顯現什麼?

 

If I print a plate continually in 24 hours without rest, what will it present?
