Through this work, I wish to discuss the relationship between the media with its audience. I intent to display plus revive the magic, or, the “trick” of the image. Through photography and editing, a clump of terribly mashed meat turns into a lively fish. This way, from death to birth, from emptiness to existence, the slaughter flips 180 degrees into a work of “creation”. This game of fraud pervades our daily encounters with television, the news, and the movies, and yet most audiences devour such images without second thought, they easily take them for real. Accordingly, in the same measure, why can’t we simply believe in this “rebirth” happening right in front of our eyes?

藉由「生命的節奏」這件作品,我希望討論觀眾與媒體之間的關係。整件錄像我企圖呈現一個影像的魔法(又或者可以說是技倆),透過攝影和剪接,一灘肉泥漸漸變成一條活生生的魚,由死到生,從無到有,一場殺戮180度變成了「創造」,在我們日常生活中所接觸到的電視、新聞、電影充斥著這種騙局,但是絕大部分的觀眾卻不加思索的接受這樣的影像,信以為真,所以為什麼我們不能單純的相信眼前的這場「重生」呢?
