2016年時我來到日本森林裡創作,此駐地創作的主題是「土地講故事-水的說書人」。這主題使聯想到了戲劇,它是由演員將故事或情境表演出來的藝術,而在華人哲學中「以水喻道」的自然哲學觀,以自然的宇宙觀來詮釋人的本性及生活上的種種生態智慧。我將次作品命名為「漣漪劇場」。將水和劇場兩個概念元素做結合,在這充滿水氣與生態豐富的森林中,自然萬物即是表演者,也無時無刻上演著不同的自然劇碼。


為了適應環境的變化,植物發展出其獨特傳達訊息的能力,而得以察知外界的變化,比如趨光生長的特性、氣味或是透過地下的根,以及與其共生的菌根,向周圍的植物相互傳遞訊息而提升生存的機率。我進入這座美麗的雪松森林中,感受著它神秘的氣息與流動的能量,那一根根彎曲的雪松枝條落在蓬鬆的森林地表,那傳遞訊息的植物生命載體正在林間轉化成不同的能量形式。我於是開始收集著許多散落在林間的雪松枝,將它以自然的工法構建成一座像是湧泉的雕塑,也像是森林間自然訊號流動的集合體或是動植物的棲地。而這覆蓋著植物基因自然神秘空間就像是個劇場一樣,隨時上演著自然之間的神祕劇場,如水一樣隨著時間不停地流轉,而森林本身即是那水的說書人。


"Drama" was created by human beings, and we use it to show many fable stories in order to share or remind people something.

The work's title is " Ripple Drama". I use two elements in my work which are water and theatre. It looks like a huge ripple or habitat. Everything happened here all are kinds of the drama.

Here is a beautiful cedar forest, and plants have their unique memory abilities in responding to the environment. Therefore, I construct the " Ripple Drama" by cedar sticks. It looks like a water wave emerging from the land, and all the stories will spread like water with the times. Trying to expression the poetic image of my natural experience in this forest.

The natural mysterious theatre covered with plant genes, it seems to tell some special experiences and always appear a mystic drama between human beings and the nature. It is also the storyteller of the water
