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 which is the distance from Taiwan to Belgium. This event is written as a news. The circle is finally rubbed and printed as a record. Artist attempt to transform steps of printmaking into meaningful actions.
