Book Summary 書籍簡介
《流光。時黑》''Where Time Turns Black''
The book, authored by a university professor, features a creative blend of photography and writing in reflecting on the connection among time, memory, places and ageing. She uses visual language to set free another dimension of the time narrative. Entering into her elderly mother’s lost memory space, returning to the old district where she spent her childhood, the artist looks around in the city and finds things not entirely familiar. The symptoms that result from the development of collective hysteria led her to contemplate existence and essence, and in these times of lost context, to leave a personal footnote. Her lens gently plays over the passage of time, yet also deviates from the strict order of classicism, inadvertently leaving irreparable lacunae in the image. In her pictures she deliberately expresses “blackness" as a kind of image data failure—it is not a silence in the discourse, even less does it suggest a certain referent, rather it is the absence of some matrix. The panoramic shooting mode pulls the turbulent flow of mood changes, the touch is delicate and smooth, but the content shows an irregular, rhythmic pattern, the image highlighting the data failure. This ambiguous visual rhetoric vaguely suggests the artist’s deep thinking, revealing the convergence and entanglement between her inner world and external circumstances.
