A Real Fake Artist | 2018

这一系列图像是从利用3D技术戏仿摄影语汇的实验开始的。在一开始,我参照着自己制作了一个虚拟的模型,并将其置入到一系列图像中——它们是为这些置入所特意进行拍摄的。画面中,虚拟人物被从其“理应”的位置上移开,造成一种画面主体与其所从事活动的分割,与对线性透视空间的扰乱。在这一视觉基础之上,一个嵌套与反身的结构被建立起来:每一张图像内容都指向作品制作过程的前一个步骤;最后,图像及支撑性材料被依照着制作过程的逻辑进行排列,并成为被安装在墙面上的实体作品的结果——一种过程与结果的相互指涉。

通过这一项目,我检视并反思自己在图像生产的传统与观看的序列中作为见习者与研究者的身份,并向其发问图像制作者与图像之间的关系。

This series began as a parody of photographic vocabulary by 3D technology. First I created a fictional model based on myself, then produced a series of photographs specifically for use as real world "backdrop". The fictional character is deliberately removed from his “rightful” placement, creating a detachment between the subject of the image and his activity, meanwhile disrupting linear perspective of the pictorial space. On this basis, a self-referential structure is made, in which each image indicates the previous step in the image-production process. Finally, the pictures and supporting materials are arranged according to the production process whereby the mounted physical object forms a reference between process and result.

I reflected on my own role as practitioner and researcher in the tradition of image-production and ways of seeing, thereby questioning the relationship between the image and the image-maker.
