吳柏翰
創作論述

一件佳作必須具備至少三種特徵:它源自創作者所持重的個人體悟,作品論及人性經驗,同時也對典章制度持質疑的態度。作品因而能具備感召力,並在拓展我們之於世界的察覺和理解之時,也能進入其所屬時代,成為一種社會參照。而這些特質體現的首步,在於作品生成過程,與作品被觀眾接受吸收的方式,這兩者之等量重要性的落實。

大眾和藝術工作者之間對於攝影之意義、目的及作用能力的認知,隨消費文化下快速簡化攝影工具的普及而交集日減。然而藝術皆應帶有某種程度走進大眾的意圖和能力,之所以當下個人其一的創作取向,在於媒材認知的比較、串聯和彰顯。透過聽取兩方的聲音,設定一種立足點,讓針對攝影媒材上的探討,更能反映當代社會多元交集的樣貌。

主題的孕育,則時而源自個人潛意識的探索,也來自透過生存機制和動物本能解釋出的人類行為其背後原始動機,和人際間或人與環境之間的互動,以及這些現象在進入個人意識、集體記憶和共同情感之時,所發生的相互作用。面對題材,我偏向保持一種開放的態度在先,靜觀自省。守候間,時常能允許題材自一種意外的角度,適時展現自我的本質面貌。
