Metropolis Chlorophyll / 逐「綠」都市

Metropolis Chlorophyll
Our city is densely packed with high rise buildings which keep intruding into any existing oasis. The wrestling between concrete and the greens is endless. Through the utilization of the sensitivity of infrared photography towards chlorophyll, the vanishing greeneries hidden in the gaping voids among the city’s concretes, be it rooftop or back alleys, are being captured as unique golden yellow colour. The glittering tenacious lives of plants exude a cry in these infrared images and make audience reflect on the banishment of nature under a fast paced urbanization.


走在石屎森林,一枝枝擎天石柱把原有的綠洲覆蓋,灰白總是跟翠綠對著幹。
諷刺,是在人工化的白色土地上,人們還是依戀真正的森林,試著重組親手破壞的一切。
葉綠素於紅外線攝影下呈現出獨特的金黃色。
用鏡頭追逐及捕捉大街小巷從不起眼的綠林,引證花草樹木金光燦爛的頑強生命。
在時空錯配的城市空間,發掘現實的矛盾點。
都市化對大自然不斷驅逐。

樹木就在影像中發出最後哀號,直至一切被石屎取代。
