PROJECT 001
What If Set Me Free

Intro: 
单屏影像装置。

视频表述了生活在一个充满约束和管教的环境中的服从性从何而来的质问,与此同时不可避免地产生由于大环境和个体之间悬殊的力量差距带给个体的窒息感和无力感。

该视频由对两个主体的凝视交错结合产生。一是以人为主体,描绘了权利的监管是如何从实施物理上的限制突破到心理层面,从而由内向外地驯化个体,建立一个顺从的群体环境。这种驯化模式与BDSM中Dom对Sub的顺从性规训如出一辙。二是以沙盒作为载体的对环境的抽象化描述。粗略地看去,人与物看似自在地漂浮在空中,实则被固定得死死的。只是束缚着我们的泡泡在水的润色下隐去,如同包裹在”共建美好社会”口号下对自由的高度打压现状。


Intro:  
Single screen video installation.

The video addresses the inquiry into the source of obedience in an environment of constraint and discipline, while inevitably generating a sense of suffocation and powerlessness due to the vast disparity of power between the wider circumstances and the individual.

The video is the result of an intertwined gaze at two subjects. One is human, depicting how the regulation of authority breaches from the imposition of physical restrictions to the psychological level, thus domesticating the individual from the inside out and creating a submissive group setting. In the same way as Dom's submissive regulation of Sub in the BDSM mirrored this domestication model. The second is an abstract description of the environment using the sandbox as a vehicle. At a cursory glance, people and objects appear to be floating freely in the air, but in fact they are anchored rigidly. It is the bubble that binds us that disappears under the gloss of water, as does the high degree of suppression of freedom wrapped up in the slogan of "building a better society".
