项目自述 / Artist Statement:

“信号"是在西部联合驻留计划的支持下,在青海西宁市完成的一个在地性项目。

在我开车深入中国西部1800公里后,我体验到一种无法解释的沟通欲望,特别希望能与这片广阔的大地,还有当地人的交流。在这段时间里,我印象最为深刻的发现是,无论身处沙漠还是戈壁,我在旅途中始终能够保持稳定的4G讯号,这使我特别注意了遍布城市屋顶和乡野的信号基站和信号塔。

通过对这些硬件设施的仔细研究,我将这个项目被分为三个互补的部分,同步实施。1,在获得了作为当地摄影师的市民中心主任的私下许可,我在社区街道的市民中心房顶上搭建了一个与标准版本的信号基站略有差异的信号塔雕塑。受益于主任的观照,这座“基站”或许会在这座城市中存在很长时间。2,“西宁当代”这个艺术空间位于市中心的一条社区道路上,邻居是杂货店和其他小型企业。我重新装修了它的外观和内部空间,使其成为一处看似标准的西联汇款的分支机构,但我对其细节进行了一些修改:例如使用“West Region Union”在语义上对应于邀请我的“西部联合驻留项目”,也可以被解读为“西部地区的工会组织”,logo中的信号塔也带有自愿使用的TM标识。3,项目的第三个地点发生在街道市民中心二楼的展览空间。我将自己沿途对西部城市的信号塔和信号基站的图像记录汇总,做成一个具有社会主义浪漫色彩的类型摄影展。只不过从现场上来看,主办方是一家名为“西联汇臆”的公司的总工会,所有照片均出自该公司的优秀职工。

Signal is a recent project that may take place much longer than its exhibition duration in the city of Xining where is on the edge of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in north-west China.

After driving 1800 kilometers into the west China, I found unexplainable wishful for communicating to the openness of the lands and possibly the local people. During the time, I found interesting that I am constantly online with stable 4G signals all along the journey, which brought me a special attention to the signal base stations and signal towers which installed all over the streets and rooftops.

With carefully studied on those facilities, the project was divided to 3 complementary parts for construction: I built up a slightly different version of structure on Xiaoqiao Civic Center’s roof, which is a replicated sculpture with private permit and support from a local photographer friend who is also being the director of that building. I also renovate another artist-run space that locates on a local community’s roadside, with a grocery store and other small businesses. I changed its looking as a standard Western Union branch, with several editing to the money shop’s slogans, like "West Region Union", its signal tower looking logo and "Opinion in Minutes Around the World". In the third venue, I made a photographic typology exhibition on signal bases and towers in the Civic Center that namely present by the worker's union of the "West Region Union".
