Video Game Existentialist
電玩存在主義
video installation, 6'02''
porcelain, soap
 
這個錄像裝置作品盡可能地在模擬一個不自然的廁所的環境。錄像以一個關於廁紙的笑話作為起點,記錄了一個孤獨的中年男子在城市裏遊蕩的過程。這個處於存在危機中的男子,正在思考人生的價值以及什麼是「存在」。隨著時間的推進,故事的全貌慢慢浮現──這個男子是一個生存在今年5月新出的遊戲當中的主角。隨著音樂嘎然而止,男主角的命運也讓人不得而知。
 
這個作品延續詩人作品當中的沖突感,將嚴肅的哲學話題與電子遊戲做結合,並置於了一個真實的日常環境當中。
 
The installation of this work is an imitation of an uncanny toilet. Starting with a joke of toilet paper, the video records the journey of a lonely middle-aged man wandering in the city. This man is encountering an existential crisis, and contemplating on the very question of “existence.” As the video proceeds, the whole picture of the story begins to reveal – this man actually belongs to a video game that is just released this May. As the music suddenly stops, the fate of the man remains unknown.
 
This work continues the sense of conflict in A Poet Prepares and combines philosophy with video games within the daily environment of a toilet.
