Project Description

Rebirth | 重生

 

Description:

The final-year project of design graduate Anson Woo, “The Ordinary Beauty At Night” captures ordinary but touching scenery with photography. Woo hopes to present scenes of daily life with the perspective of looking up. Viewers are directed to pay attention to their surroundings and discover things to appreciate in daily life.

The「DesignXcel」team has teamed up Anson Woo with Photo Now. After seeing the works of several graduates and meeting them, Lai Yat Lam, Co-founder of Photo Now suggested them to produce new works by brainstorming inspirations together.

Woo instantly decided to use “Rebirth” as his new theme to explore possibilities of external body forms. Every person has a unique body. Genetics, habits and experiences have shaped the appearance of our bodies since we were born. Perhaps we do not like our own bodies, but hating our own bodies does not make us become who we want to be or look like. Our bodies will only continue to grow with us. Therefore, Woo photographed the lines on his palms with light and shadow. He has come to understand how diverse body forms can be throughout the process.

設計畢業生胡健霆的畢業作品「燈火闌珊處」是一個透過攝影去捕捉這片平凡卻動人的景緻。胡希望透過仰視的展現方式把日常生活中的景象呈現,引導觀眾多留意身邊環境和發掘日常生活中值得欣賞的事物。

《設計列陣》團隊找來「現在攝影」與胡健霆合作,「現在攝影」共同創始人之一的賴憶南經過與畢業生們的見面交談和分享拍攝經驗後,希望他們多吸納彼此意見,共同尋找靈感發揮,再創作新的作品。

胡隨即定立了一個新的主題「重生」,以探索人體各種外在形態的可能性。每個人都有一個獨特的身體,自我們出生以來,遺傳、習慣及經驗塑造了我們身體的外觀。也許我們不喜歡自已的身體,但討厭自己身軀亦不能夠令我們變成想要的模樣,它依舊會繼續伴着我們一起成長。因此,胡透過光和影去攝影自己用身體比畫出的不同形態。過程中,他獲益良多,了解到透過攝影塑造的身體形態可以千變萬化。
