Mǎorganic

$120.00

Mǎorganic = Mǎo + organic, is a series of photographic works where "Mǎo" is the pronunciation of the Chinese word "冇", which means "no or nothing". Indeed, "Mǎorganic" connotes "not-organic" or "inorganic". The production of man-made landscape is an attempt to reshape nature through emulation, simulation, zoning and control, which in turn influences or even dominates our understanding of natural landscapes. In the end, man-made landscape simply becomes our definition for nature itself. Therefore, this work explore the relation between man-made and natural objects in order to understand how they change or rectify people’s perception to what nature is, trying to seek answer as to on what foundation modern city dwellers define nature.

Mǎorganic

這個系列作,源於兩詞 ─ Mǎo (「冇」) 與 organic (「有機」) 的組合。人造景觀在製作時,往往以參考、模仿、規劃、控制等各種手段,企圖重塑著自然物,繼而影響甚至支配了我們對自然固有的理解與定義,至最後更取代了原有的自然而成為人們對自然的唯一定義。因此,本作嘗試尋找自然物與人造物共生的關係,了解人對自然的觀點是如何受兩者的影響而被重塑及被修正,並嘗試解答城市生活中的現代人是從哪裡開始定義出大自然的概念。
