2016年的夏天,我正歷經人生的一次低潮期,我沒有目的地開始製作這張海報。我使用了過往的設計工作中沒有派上用場的素材,自然地、感性地拼湊它們。我沒有根據地認為「自我」的蛛絲馬跡,就藏在那些大量的色彩與造形之中。我將它視為某種我對世界、對社會的「告白」,我試著忠於內心地去投射自身無法言說、甚至無從理解的情感或想像。

一個設計師,透過完全自我地海報創作來釋放情緒、並有企圖地將其公諸於世,也許在不斷強調設計「應該如何」的環境中,是一件既戲謔又無利益可言的事………但不可否認地,這相當令人著迷。回過頭來,創作無疑是自由的,但,什麼是海報?什麼是設計?在理所當然之中,也許我正推開一扇未知之門。

The summer of 2016 was a hard time for me, when I started working on this poster without a clear purpose. Using materials that did not see a chance of being applied to my past works, I just pieced them together randomly and sentimentally. I believed, without any concrete proof, that the clues to my “ego” were hiding amongst the myriad of colors and shapes. For me it was some sort of “confession” to the world and to the society, with which I tried to reflect truthfully those incommunicable and even imperceptible emotions or fantasies.

In a context where how design “should be like” is constantly being emphasized, it was perhaps farcical and unprofitable for me as a designer to release my emotions through creating a poster egoistically, and then intentionally make it known to the public... then again, it was also quite fascinating. In retrospect, the process of creating is undoubtedly free, but what exactly is a poster? What is design? Among all those established definitions that are taken for granted, maybe I was opening a gate to the unknown.
