光阴逐水流

Making Current



成都是一个亲水的城市,这里因水的沁润而变的柔软。麓湖,一个新兴水城,在建设中蔓延出无限活力。都江堰,治理了一方水域的水利工程,从公元前开始就改变了河水流向以防控洪水的侵袭,成都因此变得富饶而饱满。可以说,是历经2000多年的水文化带来了如今的风调雨顺。水是生命之源,人们依水而居,对水的基本需求从远古开始便流传下来。生生不息,循环往复,水让过去与未来的连接与延续成为可能。现在,城市时刻处于开发之中,随处可见的吊车以及穿行进出的施工人员,新的城市文化正在应运而生。每一幢高楼背后都是人类深入地下的结果,当我们建立新的地表,也在和古老的过去,甚至还不曾出现人类的时间相遇。


我将玻璃放置于层叠铺设的彩砂之上,如同地质构造一般,一个小型的起重机将持续敲击表面。不断从玻璃缝隙中流溢出来的沙子,将形成一个新的景观。行动力与创造力的意向来自于起重机不断重复的运动,玻璃的裂痕则代表在历史进程中人类为改变生存环境而付出的努力。在玻璃表面产生一个新的裂缝,如同流动的河水,这是人类创造并改变流动的方式。


Chengdu is a city of water. A river flows through the city, giving softness to a large area. Luxelakes has also created a new lake in a place that did not previously have water, which is energetically completing the city. Dujiangyan is an ancient water-use project that changed the flow of a large river for irrigation and flood control. As a result, Chengdu became rich agricultural land. In other words, an interest in water more than 2000 years ago has brought about the present fertility and stability. Water is essential to human life and people have always wanted to live near the water; it seems to reflect a fundamental human need that has existed since ancient times. The endless movement of water shows us that the distant past and the future are all part of the same continuum. Now, new construction is happening everywhere, with buildings under construction and cranes all over the city. We can imagine the overwhelming development of this city in the future. When we build a building, we dig deeper into the stratum. We create new strata on the surface, while also engaging with times when humans did not exist.


I placed glass on colored sand to create strata-like deposits. Small cranes drop weights onto the glass and crack it. The colored sand is gradually cast upward through the cracks, appearing on the surface and creating a new landscape. The movement of the cranes—up and down—reflect the repetition of human labor and creation, while the making and breaking represent continuous efforts and activities in the course of human history to improve livelihoods. The new cracks on the surface of the glass represent the flow of the river and the ways that humans have created and changed its path.
