Rainbow is a physical phenomenon formed by the interaction between water vapor and sunlight in nature. It is also a symbolic sign that encourages free expression and eliminates discrimination in modern times. The work uses sound as the medium. Everyone has different sound characteristics and frequency distributions, highlighting their own personalities and differences between each other. By collecting the sound data of different people and analyzing it into a picture composed of different colors, it is like a rainbow. Ordinary bright images are metaphors for a collective social state composed of diverse populations, backgrounds, and ethnic groups.

The work "Speaking a Rainbow" created for the Treasure Rock Lantern Festival is based on the telling stories narrated by the residents of Treasure Rock. It analyzes the various colors and frequencies in the residents' tone using programs to form the first background color of the rainbow image. During the exhibition, visiting audiences are continuously invited to interact with the installation, allowing the work to incorporate the voices of people from all corners of the city, forming a more colorful rainbow image, and at the same time promoting more diversified symbolic meaning of the work, and discussion in a way of participation How can the inclusiveness of Treasure Rock accumulate, evolve, and depend on the old and the new?

In addition, it also produced "sound facial makeup" for the residents of Baozangyan, using the stories told by the residents as sound samples, analyzing and producing individual color portraits, transforming the residents' life experience during this period into a commemorative existence.

展場記錄@寶藏巖國際藝術村


彩虹是自然界中的水氣與陽光互相作用形成的物理現象,在當代也是鼓勵自由表達與消彌歧視的象徵符號。作品以聲音為媒介,每個人都有不同的聲音特質與頻率分布,彰顯各自的個性也凸顯彼此的差異,藉著蒐集不同人的聲音資料再透過分析轉化爲不同配色組成的畫面,形成宛如彩虹一般的鮮豔影像,比喻多元的人口、背景與族群共同組成的集體社會狀態。

此次為寶藏巖燈節創作的作品「說一道彩虹」,以寶藏巖居民口述的說活故事為基礎,以程式分析出居民口吻中的各種色彩與頻率,構成彩虹影像的第一道底色。並且在展出期間持續邀請來訪的觀眾與裝置互動,讓作品融入來自城市各個角落的人群的聲音,形成色彩愈加豐富的彩虹影像,同時也促成作品更多元的象徵意義,以參與的方式討論寶藏巖的包容性能夠如何累積、衍變、新舊相依。

另外也替寶藏巖的居民製作「聲音臉譜」,以居民口述的故事為聲音樣本,分析製作成個人單獨的色彩肖像,將居民這段期間的生活經驗轉化成一種紀念性意義的存在。
