未來是什麼?樹會否有能動組織?

長久以來,人對於植物的印象總是安寧、靜止與凝刻的,相較人類生化科技快速的發展,自然界並沒相應急遽地進化。但假設,有種“突變”(saltation)讓各物種於未來時空流轉下改變其物理性質(substance),那植物是否也能突破既有的形態而成長出異類的變化來面對生態的考驗?樹木是否必定得由土壤中發芽?花草有無機會在塑料堆中綻放?

這些,就是此次展覽 ─「樹保者的宇宙奇航 The Cosmic Voyage of Treehuggers」所拋出來的哉問。對田田圈來說,永續性(sustainability)並不僅是對“綠”這環保字眼作色譜的鑽研,而更是著重於怎樣在未來讓各種生命與人造物之間達到滋養般的平衡融合。

在年終的Make A Forest展覽中,我們把自己遙想成傳承千古、來自未來的田野保衛╱實驗者,扮演自己回看自己角色的同時,也展示當代樹種與未來可能的植物形態作發表。把時空感拉開後的展演讓我們更能發揮想像力去預想未來的景色,並以更超脫的角度去描繪想像中的未來樹貌,且在盡可能獲取的到的材質上塑造實踐。

而不論將來人類會否繼續生活在地球、火星甚或是另個銀河系,物種的存滅絕對仍須維持它既有的多樣性(multiplicity)跟異趣性(diversity)。人類也得依靠其不斷的創造力,與所有生物持續在大自然環境中和諧蓬勃地成長。

What it will be in the coming future? Will the plants be able to reveal its mobility?

For long since we have the memory, the plants always give us the impression of stable, peaceful and quiet. The nature hasn’t evolved rapidly according to the development of biology and technology in human sense. However, if there is a sort of saltation that varies the substance in all sorts of species in the future, will the plants be able to break through its original form and status, and evolve into different variations to face the test of climate change? Will the trees have to grow in the ground? Are flowers able to blossom from plastics?

These questions are the start points for this exhibition - “The Cosmic Voyage of Treehuggers” by Tientiencircle Creative Group. For us, “sustainability” is finding the balance between all sorts of creatures and human beings, instead of digging into the vocabulary of “green”.

Expanded from the exhibition of “Make A Forest”, started from the beginning of 2011, this time, we imagine ourselves as the treehuggers from far away Galaxy in the future. We exhibit these artificial trees in the contemporary, and form the possible shape while looking back from the future. We figure on the future view after being unbounded of time and space, and build up the land and plants in any materials that we can put into the practice in modern time.

Regardless of living on the Earth, the Mars or another Galaxy, the existence of all sorts of species that definitely have to maintain its multiplicity and diversity in the future. As well as human whom will keep his constant creativity to revolute with all the creatures in our mother of nature gently and nicely.
