Proposal (text sent by artist)*:

“Materials: White crayon, black color, camera, projector.

Implementation process:

Put a huge white canvas on the ground, draw the outline of eye and eyeball with white crayon. Things drawn with crayon are unseen, what will be seen is the motion we make, then draw the outline of a naked body using black color. At this time we’ve got a horrific naked body on the canvas, then we invite audiences into the creative work, they will splash the black color to canvas, tell them there will be some marvelous transformation on the canvas previously (we hope we can create an active environment so that audiences can use their hands ,even feet to give color to the canvas, optionally.

While audiences are splashing the black color, the huge eye is turning out, and the “body” is changing to be more truly .When the work is almost completed, we will take pictures of audiences’ eyes, and projective them on the wall. The whole room will be filled with different eyes, it presents different feelings, different world.

The body on the canvas hasn’t been splashed means truth, and it means “lies” when it’s been splashed by color. “The truth” is accepted when it’s wearing “lies”. And the naked truth is horrific, there’s only one main difference between truth and lies. “Eyes are world”, when the room is been filled with eyes, we hope audiences can feel about various stories in the world, and different truths and lies.”

主题:谎言

材料和设备:白色蜡笔、黑色颜料、照相机、投影仪

方案:设置一张巨幅白色画布平铺在空间地面,用白色蜡笔在巨幅画

布上勾勒出眼睛的轮廓和眼珠,以上步骤都是用白色蜡笔画在白色画

布上,所画的东西是看不见的,只看的见我们在作画的动作,接下来

用黑色颜料勾勒出一具裸身的尸体,此时整张画布上只有一具令人恐

惧的裸身尸体,接下来邀请参观者参与到作者中赋予画布黑色,并告

诉他们泼墨后并不只是留下黑色颜料的痕迹,而是整个画面会发生其

妙的变化,大家一起往白色画布上随意泼洒黑色颜料(此时希望我能

带动大家活跃起来,随意的,放肆的挥洒黑色颜料或用手或脚赋予画

面黑色),在大家一起泼墨的同时,巨幅眼睛已经慢慢的呈现出来,

而那具裸身的尸体也产生了变化,它已经被赋予了一件黑色的外衣,

并变成了一个鲜活的人,随着泼墨越来越多,作品也即将完成,此时

希望能邀请参观者,照下他们的眼睛,并用投影仪投射都墙上,使整

个房间充满各种眼睛,各种震撼,各种世界。

泼墨前和泼墨后的尸体其实就是真实和谎言,真实穿上了谎言的衣服

得以被接受,而那赤裸裸的真实却令人恐惧的,谎言与真实其实只是

一念之间的。眼睛即使世界,当房间被各种眼睛充斥的同时希望观者

能体会到世间各种故事,各种真实与谎言。
