Micro City・微型城市

以下兩個名為”微型城市”的模型表達了如何將日常生活的平凡物件透過特定的組合與不同尺度視角的呈現,去影響並改變對人們日常生活物件感知的改觀,並使用模型影像放大去佔據空間的方式,進而影響原有真實空間的狀態。

這兩個以日常物件組合而成的模型透過延展組合後的形體,分別放置於小房間及桌子底下的縫隙。組裝模型的過程中以微型城市為想像來組合發展形體,因此選擇較大的物件作為想像的城市地面來延展模型,並想像極微小的物件如同城市的建築或轉運站等城市會出現的空間特質來做組合。透過不斷的組合與疊加,最後成為一座大型城市,佔據並影響原有小房間與桌下縫隙的空間狀態。

每一個組裝的碎片或是小物件都以城市特質為想像去組合,因此物件不再是原本物件的意義,而被微型城市不斷延展與佔據的房間與桌下空間在此也不再是房間或桌子,而成為城市空間的一部分。由於這些物件佔據了人們所忽略的或習以為常的空間,因此物件在此改變並重新定義了空間的特質。而這些物件也創造了物件與場所的新關係。

基於以想像成為城市的概念來發展模型,模型也不應該以一個巨大物件來觀看。因此觀看模型的方式應與人們透過連續片段觀看城市的方式相同。在此,使用微型攝影機模擬人的眼睛,不斷的在微型城市空間移動與紀錄視覺片段,並且將所記錄的片段投射於其他空間。透過投影的方式將微小的微型城市空間放大至與真實環境空間尺度相似,並且刻意投射在有物體的牆面上以及人們熟悉的空間中。

在投影的影像中刻意挑選極具強烈透視效果的影像,當影像與真實空間牆面重疊時,牆面彷彿被投影的透視影像打破並且延伸出更深的空間。同時,許多真實物件與影像由於被彼此分割,型體輪廓變得模糊不容易辨識。透過使用白色線條重繪製可被辨識的影像與空間物件輪廓的過程,將影像與真實空間一同繪製在一起,刻意模糊兩者的區別,打破兩者的物件邊界輪廓也打破空間邊界。經由這一系列的實驗過程發現,影像的投影與重疊成為干擾、模糊、打破空間合理性、再製與重塑空間的方法。

The following two models named Micro City will show how the perception of everyday object changes, together with the methods of construction and different scales in order to occupy the space, and the impact of space’s status.

These two models are composed with everyday objects, which directly occupy the installation room and the gap under the table respectively with the extension of objects and constructions. The two models are developed as well as an imagining micro city, which has very huge objects and structures to organise the whole model as ground, including medium and tiny different type of objects of buildings or transports. The two models have completely impacted and changed the original status of space.

Every small fragmented object composes a one huge object based on the characteristics of city. The meanings of these tiny objects have been changed. The city occupies and continues to extend in the installation room where it has become a part of the city base. Because of these objects occupy the space where people tend to ignore, the objects change and redefine the characteristic of the space. They also create the new relation between objects and the place

Due to the concept of imagining micro city is under the development, the model should not be seen as one big object. The way how the model should be seen is the same way of how people view the city as a series of fragments. This is why the micro camera is used instead of people’s eyes when recording the visual fragments in this micro city. Through the same micro camera, the images will be projected on the wall in the studio. Nevertheless, there are two things would change due to the projection: one is the scale of the model in vision and another one is the image of the objects which is being projected on the wall in the studio. It is important to notice that the model is enlarged for matching the similar scale of the real environment that people are familiar with.

The new images are projected to cover the object on the wall with a powerful perspective, which seems to break the wall out of extend the depth of the wall. Some objects become difficult to be recognized while they also divide the images from the projector into several parts. Both images of projection and a part of wall are getting blurry and are difficult to be distinguished. Using the white line to redraw both outlines can make their shapes much clearer but much difficult to distinguish them between image and studio in vision. The projection seems to be a potential method to generate the outline when dividing and breaking the rationality of the space. The overlapped image could break the original status of the space in vision.
