    我將旅行時錄得的各地火車聲音,錄至卡式帶中,再將磁帶拆出,圍繞展覽場地的天花掛上。

    卡式機循環播放這些火車的聲音時,卡式帶也跟玩具火車一樣,在會場內走動。

    卡式帶因走動磨損,聲音隨時日變得模糊。

    卡式帶在展場的旅程 ⇔ 我在各地乘地鐵火車的旅程

    兩者的相似之處:

    (一)最緊要好玩;

    (二)去得越遠越好;

    (三)過程慢慢磨蝕;

    (四)少不免有阻滯;

    (五)去得幾耐得幾耐。

    (展覽原文)

    I dub the field recordings on trains collected abroad to a cassette tape, and hang the tape from the ceiling of the exhibition space.  When the cassette player plays the sounds of trains (on which I travelled), the cassette tape is literally travelling round, as well, the exhibition space on loop.  The sound gradually become muddled as the cassette continuously rubs against different surfaces.

    Tape travelling in the exhibition space ⇔ Me travelling on trains in different places

    Similarities between the two:

    1) Fun, fun, fun;

    2) The farther the better;

    3) Things fade out bit by bit;

    4) Troubles occur;

    5) Go as long as it could.
