《请你点个“赞”》

《请你点个“赞”》是一个“社交网络图像实验”。

在本组作品里,我用大幅相机拍摄若干日常生活中在移动互联网社交平台上常见的“被晒”对象,然后以微信朋友圈传播并收获反馈(点赞和评论),使其完成内容传播上的意义。最后我把照片连同社交网络上的反馈放大输出到和图像内容相比显得不合常理的尺寸,用上墙展示的方式作最终呈现。

我通过将那些毫无传统“审美”意义的对象置于特定的观看距离上,迫使观众以传统艺术品欣赏的方式注视这些只属于移动终端屏幕的影像,强行赋予这些游离于虚拟空间的照片以传统“摄影作品”的特征,把这些“永不落地”的照片用传统摄影作品的展示方式固定下来,从而消解原本附着在其上社交网络用途上的意义。

我试图以本组作品与日常生活中社交网络上的“快照”模式构成反动,刻意放大这些承载了个人信息但又迅速地被互联网黑洞所吞噬的电子垃圾,把普通生活中的琐碎片段变成具有纪念碑式的神圣瞬间,让某种根植于平常中的永恒得以浮现,以期制造一种当今社交网络大时代背景下的“日常生活中的经典”,探讨社交网络图像消费的意义。

Please Click "Like" is a "Social Network Picture Reading Experiment".

In this serial, I employ a large format camera to shot daily scenes in the way that are frequently presented on social media, Moments of Wechat here for example, and post the pictures back onto Moments. The responses it gathers, likes or comments, tell exactly how the meanings of those pictures are produced during the circulation of images. Then I print out the images and the responses of them from the social media to huge-size pictures, which look unreasonable larger than it supposed to be, and display them on the wall with frames.

These images are none aesthetics objects, which could only be found on mobile terminal. Through placing them on the wall with a certain distance of viewing, I make the audience to appreciate them like they appreciate arts. I embody these scattered images in the virtual space with characters of "traditional photographic works", and settle these "permanently unsettled" pictures down to deconstruct what they firstly produce on the social media.

My attempt is to make a contrast between this series and those instant snapshots on daily social media. By exaggerating these digital trashes that bears personal information but quickly consumed by the cyber black hole, I make the monotonous momentous, the ordinary extraordinary, in order to invent some sort of “daily classics” and to discuss the circulation of images in the era of social media.
