I took photos of different vegetables at night time - they were planted by people in one of residential com- pounds in Shanghai. This was illegal and caused lots of trouble between the neighbors and the compound management. I turned these photos into flashing LED light boxes which were governed by program which turned them on and off. At the same time, I made up a series of fictive “conversations” about how the vegetables had evolved with different abilities or super powers to protect themselves. This dialogue was shown on a big screen under the guise of a scientific log. I.e. the conversations from the vegetables were captured by a “high-tech device” which analyzed their “biological signals.” The rhythm of the dialogues were synchronized in time with the flashing light boxes... so when one plant was “talking”, it’s particular light box would light up.
我在晚上拍了各种蔬菜照片,它们是被人“非法”种在上海某小 区绿地内,造成了邻里和管理层面的许多矛盾。这些照片被做成 了可以由程序控制闪亮的LED灯箱。同时我编造了一系列关于这 些蔬菜如何进化出了不同的本领或超级能力来保护自己的“对 话”,并将其模仿成是通过“高科技设备”检测分析而出的“植 物电波信号”,显示在一个大屏幕上。这些“对话”的节奏和 LED灯箱同步闪亮。。。因此当某蔬菜在“说话”时,特定的灯 箱就会闪亮。
