摄影机的镜头取代了一只手和眼睛的位置在一个衣柜里翻来找去的动作,摄影机记录了镜头与衣橱里的衣服直接的接触过程,强调了主观视觉存在的可能性。

I picked up the remains of an old eagle under a water tower. It fell
from the sky, a long time ago. I extended the wings along my arms . I connect myself with the eagle and walk around and make impromptu movements in my daily living environment.

让呼吸的起伏来影响拍摄使其影像上下晃动:一个是空荡荡的海景;另一个是作品所在地周围的各种景物,这两个视频搁于跷跷板的两端。中间的视频是用相反的方式屏住呼吸的拍摄,一支日光灯写着“SEE”,随着“砰”的一声而消失,接着又一支日光灯亮了伴着“SAW”字样,继而又是一声“砰”而消失……跷跷板前面悬着一杆气枪。

Once I saw this video on YouTube, a compilation of moments of capture in
animal hunts from the North American Hunting Association. With the hunter’s gun locked in place, the animals were cursed and unable to escape. The second before being shot, their eyes look confused and fearful, stared straight in the direction of humans, and then all fell to the ground with a thud. I felt confused and vulnerable by this violent energy, as a user commented under the video: The most dangerous animal in the world.
Although hunting is ancient and primitive, I felt uncomfortable revisiting a killing “spree” in such an intense and unequal way. In another sense, it resonates with the human pleasure of pursuing absolute power. Therefore, I took this video of the hunt and juxtaposed it with another
video. I banged out some negative words on a brass plate and tuned up the metal clanging sound to echo the sound of the gunshots in the former video. On the screen, a blinking of huge eyes shows startling unease from hearing loud noises. It looks directly into the camera lens, making it impossible to avoid, with which to provoke the viewer’s fearful association
with other related matters.
