Proposal (text sent by the artist)*:

“Implementation process:

1 Make the paperboard hollow cylinder, hanging on the center of ceiling (1.65meters to the ground), wipe the black color inside and outside the cylinder. Set some small cylinders outside the big cylinder, made by plastic slices, inside of small cylinders will be painted with patterns, these patterns may be looks like something (like clouds, mountains and so on),but not totally like them. Audiences can see the patterns, set a small light (yellow rays) in order to build a dim and mysterious atmosphere. Put a wooden box (about 35 centimeters high) on the ground, for audiences to use.

2. Me with some other partners will look through the small cylinders and pretend to be very interested in what we see. Audiences can stand on the box to watch it, it won’t be easy to see what is really inside, what they see will be really or not really, audiences who are watching it will be more and more concentrated, so more audiences will be attend into the game.”

《从众》:

材料:卡纸、塑料片、荧光笔、绳索、木箱、摄像机、节能灯

操作细节:

将卡纸做成空心的圆柱,悬挂在屋顶的中心(距地面165cm),圆柱

外内都涂上黑色,外部有多个不均匀排列的圆筒,内部用塑料片卷成

圆柱桩,画上抽象的图案(如云朵、高山),似像非像,使人通过圆

筒可以隐约看到塑料片上的图案,打上微弱的黄色节能灯。在周围漆

黑的环境中,营造出一种神秘幽暗的氛围。圆柱下旁边的地面上随

意放置一个木箱(h=350cm)工人们使用。摄像机放置在进门左边里

面的角落,可以捕捉进来的人从进来到悬挂的圆形处的一系列动作。

实施:

我作为带头者和其余几个人很专注的通过圆筒,很专注的向圆筒里

看,表现的十分有趣。吸引观众一起来看。由于挂置较高,圆筒分布

不均,观众可踩在木箱上。总之就是让观众不轻易的看到圆柱内的内

容,看到之后又似像非像,越看越专注,吸引更多的人围观。
