Span, 2018

An excerpt of the 1 hour work shot on every bridge can be walked on in London Metropolitan area, 2018. 'One cannot enter the same river twice.' Rivers always relate to human existence, and water is always used as a metaphor of time. When one want to recall memories, it is always difficult to trace back linearly, but jump through events like bridges on water. The length of every clips of bridges is based on the scale of thames river between every bridges.

这一小时的视频拍摄自伦敦都会圈中泰晤士河上每一座可以被走上的桥。“没人可以走入同一条河二次。”河流总联系着人类的存在,而水总被用来比喻时光。人在回忆时,总难以线性追溯,却总跳跃于一个个事件中如河流上架设的桥梁。作品中每座桥梁上的片段长度都基于每座桥之间距离的尺度,而作品的名字“Span”既指时间的跨度,也是桥梁的跨度。作者借由这画面和声音的变化导致的时间和空间的跳跃来怀疑人们习惯的时间概念。
