Shoot Outside/窗口對外

The Second World War put my city in touch with the world on a page in history. Bombs below the busy streets, or the war relics hidden on maps, are witnesses to the historical event. I followed the Northeast military trail to previous war sites: Are they merely results of conflicts between geographical boundaries? Are we fending off the view outside the window, or the ideological intrusion?

I sealed the window and punched a hole in it. Light entered like the bullets shot. The defender and the offender, at the end, are compressed as one.

在歷史的緯度,二戰把我城的一段時期與世界放在同一軌道上。戰事遺留下來,可會是偶然在鬧市發現的炮彈,或是隱匿於地景的軍事遺跡。我沿著東北軍事地區走訪多個遺址,看到的是關聯著地理上的敵我而又潛藏著的衝突。要防禦的是窗口對外的景致,還是意識上的侵略?
我把那數個窗口封起,開了小孔,把射程的光線引進,以另一種方式發射當年何曾發出的子彈。最終,防禦者及攻擊方壓縮在一起。
