全部的事情,都跟關係有關係,問題在於你怎麼去定義關係。

BEHIND THE STORY

當我拿起相機,拍下他們的走動、沙灘運動、蹓小孩蹓狗的人,樹下談戀愛的情侶 他們進入了我的攝影作品,我和他們產生了新的關係,作者 / 作品

 

有天下午我走在Santa Monica的沙灘
那裡有很多俊俏的男生,漂亮的美女
原先,他們只是陌生人、路人
若硬要說出關聯,大家不過是:同一個時間點在同一個地點存在的人
當我拿起相機,拍下他們的走動、沙灘運動、蹓小孩蹓狗的人,樹下談戀愛的情侶
他們進入了我的攝影作品,我和他們產生了新的關係,作者 / 作品

One day I walked on the beach in Santa Monica.
I observed things around me. A bunch of people were there. 
Some of them were taking a walk. Some of them were chatting. Some of them were riding a bike.
However, none of them were my friend. I did’t  know them even talked to any of them. 

 

All of the people there were just strangers to me.
They were just showed up there meanwhile with me. We turned up at the same place. 
At the very beginning they didn’t mean anything to me.

 

I attempted to create relationships with them. I took out my camera and took some photos for those people on the beach as a recording of my daily life.

 

In this way, the meaning of relation between me and those strangers have been changed. 
From strangers to producer and creator, they became a piece of my work; since they went into the frame of my camera.
你和你養的貓的關係,情人跟你的關係
草和陽光的關係,地球跟太陽的關係和整個宇宙又是什麼關係。

 

果實的種子,落在土壤裡,幫助種子成長的泥土,陽光,空氣和水就和種子之間有了連結。
問題在於,用什麼方式去利用環境,觀察身邊的事物,進而和他們產生關係和連結呢?
舉例來說,某天的我心情低落
到街上逛逛,汽車的聲音,人們交談的內容,空氣流動的聲音,腳踏車在小巷裡的煞車聲
餐廳傳來的食物香氣,忽然間我得到了安慰。

 

這個城市就變成了我的朋友,我從房間到戶外的移動為我和城市產生了新的一個定義
發掘新的關係,原先我只是住在這裡,現在我利用它。

關係不是原本就存在的,而是我們怎麼去產生和其他人、其他東西的連結,你不會忽然間和路邊不認識的人變成好朋友。

兩個原本單獨的人,相愛之後在一起,發展進化成家庭,他們的關係從陌生人變成親人

所以關係是自己去發展探索的,你想要怎麼改進你的生活,就得想辦法,發展和利用周遭環境的好關係。

Everything is about relationships. The point is how do you define your relationships with others?
Relationships among you and your cat, your lover, and the city where you live in. Moreover, the relationship between sun and earth, then to the universe.
Any relations are probably not already exist. Consequently, by exploring and finding, you can get a new development of relations for everything around you. You wouldn’t have a close friend all of a sudden.
Those definitions of relationships are based on your development and exploring with things.
