Alley's Daily Life

On-site Installation // Video // 2010 // Taipei, Taiwan

This is a site located in Taipei city Taiwan, a very typical kind of residential area in Taiwan which is highly intergrated with commercial function. This passage is an entry for people who live in the apartment building, also a passage for passers-by, a parking space for scooters and at certain time, the sitting area for street food stalls.

In architectural field, we use drawings and models to embody a space. However drawings and models cannot fully represent a real spatial experience, experiencing a space is sensational and subjective.

Through this installation work, I attemp to visualize the liquidity of the border between public and private space at this specific site. The border is constantly changing every moment every day. My method is through an on-site video installation: overlapping a video recording of the space with the actual space. The video records the events happen ing throughout the whole day and is screened on two translucent pieces of textile. The total length of the video is about 20 minutes.
這個基地座落於台北市區南機場社區中,是一個台灣非常典型高度住商混合的社區。所選的社區廊道空間除了做為居民進出公寓的過道之外,也是機車腳踏車的停放空間、在一天某幾個特定時段,更是路邊攤的內用座位區。

在建築領域,我們使用繪圖及模型將一個空間具像化。然而,繪圖及模型依然無法完全體現人們的空間經驗,「經驗空間」應該是包含感官並且主觀的。

透過此裝置作品,我試圖將多變且流動的公私領域之間的界線視覺化。在此典型的社區過道空間,這界線是時時刻刻在一天內不斷變動著的。我選擇的表現手法是將錄像影片與現實空間交疊--紀錄並快轉此基地一整天空間使用上的變化,並投影在兩張半透視的投影幕上。整個紀錄影片片長約莫20分鐘。
