在本屆駐校藝術家計畫中,藝文中心團隊首度嘗試引進青年藝術家與資深駐校藝術團隊進行合作、共同創作,期待能在不同世代與媒材之間碰撞出特別的火花。本次合作邀請到政大廣告系畢業的導演暨影像藝術家魏閤廷、以駐校藝術家Tim Budden於駐校展覽在藝文中心四樓大廳展示的作品〈炙陽〉作為創作文本,經過雙方多次交流創作概念、彼此啟發,以限地製作形式完成全新的影像作品,並投影於剪紙作品表面,完成一次精彩的藝術共演。

In this year’s Artist Residency Program, the NCCU Art & Culture Center, for the first time, tries to introduce a young artist to collaborate and co-create art with the team of senior artists-in-residence at NCCU, wishing to set off unprecedented sparks of creativity during the interaction of different media and generations. For this purpose, the Center invited director/visual artist WEI Ho-Ting, who graduated from the Department of Advertising, NCCU, to use artist-in-residence Tim Budden’s work, Burnt Sun (exhibited in the hall on the fourth floor of the Center), as the foundation of creation. After several meetings in which they exchanged creative and mutually-inspiring opinions, a brand-new, site-specific visual work of art is born. The visual art is projected on the surface of Budden’s papercutting work, rendering a magnificent co-performance of different art genres.

這次的共創對象是一幅巨大的剪紙作品《 炙陽 》,她有一個巨大的圓的形象,並且鏤空、具有穿透性,表面也不平滑,甚至帶有燒灼過後的手感,有風經過的時候甚至會輕微晃動——這並不是一個我所熟悉的影像載體,但卻是一個新奇的合作實驗。我所理解的〈炙陽〉是源於無所不在的自然,所以我以圓形為主體,透過影像的循環變化,創造更多關於「自然」與「時間」的想像空間。

因為投影的角度,影像不只落於剪紙作品的表層,也透過鏤空處降落至地面,形成立體的空間。因此讓我有機會將影像轉化為流動的「光」與「影」去思考,而不只是單純的投影而已。感謝 Tim Budden 對於作品開放的態度,讓我感覺像是加入一個即興樂團,為了找出美妙的合音,必須打破自己的創作慣性,同時也打開了與觀眾互動的有機空間。
