投影光

Projection light

 

找尋影像與光的關係,嘗試讓投影機投出不同於一般影像的「光」,而這個光在這件作品成為影像。

 

思考投影機的光為何能被視為影像,一般來說,當投影機只投出白光時,畫面上會有投影機一格一格的畫素,這似乎是投影與光最大的差別,我想像如果我把這個畫素不斷放大,過程中會出現一格格的格線,最後進入黑線之中是一片黑。影片的後半段,出現一束光漸漸放大,暗示電影院中的投影設備,使影像回到觀眾當下所處的空間;光於不同維度的空間中流動,在影像、數位及真實世界中都有不一樣的樣貌及扮演角色。

 

這部影片沒有片頭或片尾的標題,頭尾皆是空白;讓影像成為光,讓影像投出空間。

 

In order to find out the relationship between images and light, I apply a projector, trying to cast the “light”, which is different from an ordinary image. The light, however, turns into an image in this work.

 

I wonder why the light from projections would be seen as images. Generally, when a projector casts white light only, there will be grids of pixel on screen. This seems the basic difference between projection and general light. I imagine that if I keep enlarging these pixels, and what will it become in the end? It’s darkness, the light of black. In the second half of the film, a enlarging light suggest that the projection equipment in the movie theater, and returns the image to the space where the audience is now. Light flows in different dimensions of space, and has different appearances. Light plays different roles in images, digital space and the real world.

 

There are no subtitles at the opening or ending of the video, and both the beginning and the end are blank. Thus, the image becomes the light and casts space.
