    展出聲音裝置「南山未了」後三年,我再次聆聽媽媽過身前的錄音,追憶續漸消逝的記憶。

    我將錄音放至鐵盒中,錄音變得不清,時而震動鐵盒。如欲細聽錄音,參觀者須坐地,靠近鐵盒。

    於我而言,鐵盒象徵「萎縮」 — 對母親記憶的萎縮、對她離感受的萎縮。而死亡本身,就是一個萎縮的過程。

    Three years after I put up the sound installation Incomplete Finale, I listened to my mother’s last days’ recordings again and tried to recall the fading memories of my mother.

    I put the recordings in a tin. The recordings become muffled in the tin, and at times vibrate the tin.  To listen to the recordings clearly, audience has to sit on the floor and get close to the tin.

    To me, the tin is a metaphor of contraction – of the memories and emotions of my mother and myself, and of death itself as a process of contraction.
