抽菸從不是目的
Smoking is not the Aim

​英國愛丁堡 Edinburgh, UK, 2020

非敘事短片 Narrative video, 2m51s

《Smoking is not the Aim》這支影片中,可以看見「時間」雖然是線性發展,但「意義」卻不是。當香煙被點燃的那一刻,在吸氣和呼氣之間,香菸上的詞句會縮短,而其含義也會漸漸地改變。

 

影片完整地記錄了整個過程:時間流淌、香菸燃燒,捲菸紙上的歌詞也隨之變化,而觀眾能以各種方式來解釋不同時間點下,那歌詞的意義竟然是動態的——所謂經驗,也包含了隨機觸發的多種可能性。​

The video shows that time develops linearly though, the change of meaning does not. The moment when the cigarette is alight, the words will shorten between inhale and exhale, and the meaning will change. Audiences witness and are involved in the process through the video recording, they will be able to interpret the lyrics printed on the rolling paper in various ways. The experience contains multiple possibilities of random triggering, which, perhaps, can be seen in the dynamic meaning of a shortening sentence.
