作品由許多白色枕套組構成一個矩陣型,袋體的此起彼落間以規律的節奏一消一漲,在牆面上舞動出浪潮般的節律。當作品靜置不動時,垃圾袋看似只是一批固定在牆上的物件,一旦啟動,其漲氣與消氣的動態行為,婉然化成一種具行動能力的活體生物。作品由一個微型控制器中的客製化程式支配著風扇的運作,將氣體送入枕套中。當這些枕套悄然消了氣時,那些觀者看不見的風扇仍會持續發出響亮的運作聲,觀者隱隱察覺得到某種機械的運動,卻無法明確辨識出傳入耳中的音景源自何處。

The installation consists of a matrix of white cushions which are selectively inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms, creating wavelike animations across the wall. Although each bag is mounted in a stationary position, the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively movements. A custom written program on a micro-controller takes control of the cooling fans which inflate and deflate each cushion. These hidden fans produce an ongoing sonorous sound whilst the bags themselves crumple almost silently. So the observer becomes aware of an underlying technical component but can’t certainly define where this soundscape is coming from.
