觀看氣象的風向圖,常可見到地圖上密集排列的箭頭,所指引著該地區當日推斷的風向,形成一種視覺化的統計。似乎找尋到了一種圖騰,一種可被觀察統計的慣性,或說是一種自然力量的規矩。深受這在圖學上密密麻麻的小箭頭吸引,於是展現在《場》的作品思考。當藉由風作為驅動作品的力量,感受到的是許多不可用常理判斷的不確定性,而風從何處來,它又將成為何種型態,於是設計一個感受風場的機械裝置,透過豎立起百來支立桿,架上扇葉旗桿,並牽連著一同隨風轉向的鐘錘,敲起風的鈴聲。

Meteorological wind-rose diagrams are often composed of tightly lined pointers that indicate the predicted direction of winds at a location on a particular day, and on this kind of graphical chart, some sort of pattern is observed; there is a statistical routine, or a law of nature, that is noted. This artwork, Field, is inspired by my fascination for the tightly arranged pointers on those diagrams.

This wind-powered artwork presents a medley of unpredictability that can’t be assessed with common logic. Where does the wind come from? What kind of form will it take? A mechanical installation that senses the wind is designed, and it has over a hundred poles erected and attached with blades and then connected to pendulums that rotate along with the passing wind, which then results in ringing chimes of the wind.
