《Muntjac Imitation》

Single-channel video, clay, soil, woods | 11'53 | 2019

An excellent hunter must imagine himself as the prey of his hunt. When he runs through the bushes with senses of his physical body acutely in tune with nature, it is as though he traveled through a conversion tunnel and became the animal he’s chasing. As one of the projects to explore the relationships between humans and animals, this video intends to address the transformation from humans to animals and vice versa. Through the recording and investigation of a hunter’s essential skills like tracking and mimicking animals, as well as through an “animal whisperer’s” interpretation of the mind of the Reeve’s muntjac in the video, we may be able to transform ourselves into animals in our minds.

《山羌模仿術》

單頻道錄像、黏土、土、木頭 | 11分53秒 | 2019

山羌是台灣山林中最常見的鹿科動物,也是當地原住民族中最普遍的自然資源,最常見的獵捕對象。因為嬌小的身形而處於大自然中食物鏈的底層,其動物習性對於環境非常敏感。這樣的習性反而成為人類模仿的對象,成為在山林中最有效的體感追蹤術。此作品透過對追蹤術的考察紀錄,以及委託一位「動物溝通師」來解讀影片中山羌的想法,來展開人與動物之間的轉譯行為,透過模仿動物的過程中,在意識上變身成為一隻動物。
