Idea | 意念

When I live in a place that belongs to me, I can't help but keep doing things to it.

The longer I stay there, the farther this place is from my ideal. Whatever I do to it, the more and more it lacks. And yet, what it lacks is a kind of imagination. While it is an endless desire, the pursuit of it generates improvisation, an energy that I find extremely mysterious.

Perhaps

when I have a wall, I want a table.

when I have a table, I want a chair.

when I have a chair, I want to shelf.

When I have a shelf, I want a lamp.

When I have a lamp, I want a small carpet.

When I have a carpet, I want to little garden.

And then, I think of making other things.

After warming the house, do I then change everything?

I will (pretend to) live here, and begin with the wall and make something. This may be an endless (creative) enterprise.

Some thoughts on operation:

For around one month, like going to work, I am here (and nearby) from 9am to 6pm., I want to make it into a show flat by flooring it, tailor making a high bed, table, chair etc. for myself. Through continuous remaking, and some impromptu acts of creating, I show traces and the imagination of life as flattened and narrowed.

當我在一個屬於我的地方生活, 我就禁不住要把它整整整。

越長時間的停留,這地方就離我理想的狀態越遠,無論我如何修整,缺得總越來越多。然而,所缺的追求就是一種想像,雖說這也是一種無休止的慾望,但卻在追求的過程中衍生即興,一種我視為非常神祕的創造力量。

或許

當我有了一面牆,我想要一張桌子。

當我有了一張桌子,我想要一張椅子。

當我有了一張椅子,我想要一個架子。

當我有了一個架子,我想要一盞燈。

當我有了一盞燈,我想要一塊地毯。

當我有了一塊地毯,我想要一個小花園。

然後我⼜又想造些其他的暖屋之後,是否該把東西全部換掉?

我將(假裝)住進裡面,並由一面牆開始做些什麼,這可能會是一個無止境的(創作)工程。

操作想法:

大約一個月時間長度,如一般上班族朝九晚六在空間裡面(或附近)生活,想像把它做成一個⽰示範單位,包括鋪設地板,度身訂做高床、桌子、椅子等,通過不斷地改造,也順手拈來做些其他的創作,展示一種平面化的狹窄生活痕跡及想像。
