旅行二/ 我去旅行 I go traveling Je fais un voyage
湯皇珍 TANG, HUANG-CHEN

人類企圖與他者溝通是一種好奇心,是一種觸媒,是一種對「未知」商量、探視、調適等等所有欲望的集結。透過急速的科技發明,新的溝通工具不斷將我們溝通的路徑複雜化。在時間的節略上以及空間的想像壓縮上,都已經製造了一個超級交織的立體停車場。而我們是每天在裡面旅行的。
For me mans desire to communicate with the other is a curiosity, an investigation of the unknown, a form of adaptation. Today the technology of communication accelerated at a speed unknown before has brought communication to a new level of complexity. Due to the condensation of time and space this complex network of communication has created a multi-faceted parking structure which we must travel through on a daily bases.

出發時總有一個號碼,也許是個地名,一個召喚的符碼必須輸入登記,然後開始移動,也許當你正好跟眼前的來車照會時,耳朵接收到一只打錯的無線電,而同時苦苦要找你的人正開過你上面樓層的車道。移動是所有具有符碼的人必須經常做的,這樣使得旅行十分有趣。
To begin with, we must have an address, number, or code that must be registered or entered to allow for our mobility. Perhaps as we are facing the on coming traffic we receive a connection that is a wrong number all the while the person whom is actually trying to reach you has just past over head on the next level above. In order to ensure access to this network of communication mobility and travel is mandatory to the registered and coded bringing about this dynamic situation.

我的作品提供了許多旅行:
1.首先是一個莫名其妙的觀眾可能他會好奇用我這個設備打通電話看看,他一旦撥號,就中斷了他自己原來的移動進入我為他指示的旅行。

2.透過銀幕上作者影像所發出的唇形,來閱讀一連串可能是由真實地名銜接起來的旅行地圖,雖然觀眾身體未移動分毫,卻是相當複雜的旅行。

3.接著,作者在這段展覽期間的確在旅行,她由台北→台中→高雄→台東,停留預定點一段時間再移往下一預定點,做為電話另一端的符碼回應與接收者。

4.台北打出的旅行將中斷接收處正在閱讀的旅行,開始了旅程同時停止了旅程,由一種極隨意的偶遇轉入刻意而私人的特殊旅程,觀眾選擇開啟也被迫終止。
My project proposes a multitude of voyages. First, the curious audience under the situation that I have constructed may begin by making a telephone call. Once the number is dialed the audience has already left behind his original path and entered into the itinerary established by this project.

Second, when the connection is made my image will appear on the screen announcing a list of destinations comprising
a map. In his or her stationary position in front of the screen the audience has already started his voyage into this network.

Third, during the period of the proposed exhibition I will travel from Taipei, Taichung, Kaoshung, and Tai Dong. Stopping at each destination to receive the phone calls from the audience.

Four, if a call is made from Taipei to Taichung the transmission of the announcement of destinations in Taichung will be interrupted. While Taipei enters into this network and begins to travel Taichung's voyage is interrupted. This chance encounter of a roaming public and that of a private itinerary creates both connections and interruptions.

旅行地圖的連線勾勒,是怎麼樣的一種閱讀、理解與想像呢?或者說:我們現代人最頻繁的「溝通行為」是怎麼樣的一種旅行呢?我去旅行了。也許我會寄一張明信片風景照,告訴你我在哪裡,也許我會留下一個地名,一只視訊電話?
My project raises questions such as; what kind of imaginary or rational map is this network constructed of the points of destinations from my itinerary? What kind of travel do we do with our must everyday forms of communication, e-mail, fax, and telephone? During my voyage perhaps I might mail the audience a picture post card of the landscap indicating where I am, or just the name of a place, or an image via videophone?

我永遠對人類的行為感興趣,最平常最簡單的背後,當你做的時候會不會突然想一想。我希望我的作品提供了這一機會。
I will always be interested in the attitude of people, the most banal and simple attitudes that they assume and their intentions. Perhaps when you assume these attitudes reflexively you might gain some insight into their intentions. I hope my project will bring about an opportunity for the audience to reflex on these intentions.

展覽方式:
在這些賣場的行人過道櫥窗內,安置視訊電話系統一組。
觀眾所見是:
1.一只電視銀幕,電話一具,清楚說明可以如何操作。
2. 視訊攝影機架高,電視機前方加置雨刷一只,間歇擦過銀幕。
3. 觀眾操作電話,打出接通之後,銀幕原有影像會被作者預先錄製的其他影像所取代。
4. 另外明信片上列有地點資料,觀眾在通話中,予以填寫。

作者帶著同樣一組視訊電話裝備由台北→台中→高雄→台東而行,在預定停留的店面入口或室內一處,安置設備。
1.這次將視訊攝影機對準架設於上方隱密盒子中的另一具電視銀幕,一旦通話後即可向台北傳送銀幕中不斷播出的影像以及由此下望的一角。此段影像內容預先錄製,由放影機連線電視傳導。
2.其下,觀眾所見:一只電視銀幕,上置電話一具,電視機前方置雨刷一只間歇擦過銀幕。空間上方隱密盒子中有不清楚的聲音。
3. 另外明信片上列有地點資料,觀眾在通話中,予以填寫。
4.電話只有打入,由作者在場接應,通話後,原有影像的電視銀幕會突然插入出現台北那邊對話的觀眾容貌。

影像內容:
作者以唇形發音,唸讀臺灣地名,是一次作者所做過的旅程路線。強力風扇直吹作者正面影像,造成拍錄時聲音不清晰與速度錯覺。
