32 Hours a Day我們的一天

 The liminal space at two ends of the world   2020

我的一天是24小時,他的一天是24小時,但我們的一天,是32小時。
因著倫敦台北8小時的時差,感知著額外卻不存在的1/3天,但所做的一切同步,都只發生在單調的螢幕之上。
時差因著交通速度的加快而產生,通訊的發達造就了數億萬計的遠距離關係;

這是一系列跨時空機器,連接著世界上的某兩端;

在三種模式下的不同親密程度根據暗示著心理狀態的姿勢行為而觸發,藉由材質形式轉換,貼合著各種樣式的遠距離關係。​

I have 24 hours a day, he has 24 hours a day but our one day is 32 hours due to the 8 hours time difference. We can sense the overlap of the extra nonexistent 1/3 day but the time-space shifting which we try our best to synchronise in always happens on the monotonous screen.


This three-mode tiny liminal space at two ends of the world comes from the concept of time zones which change in units of 15 degrees longitude. Made possible by the result of the improvement of communication technology, across these global time zones, millions of long-distance relationships (LDR) have been formed. The lost physical connection is compensated by communication technology, this project redresses this.

 

When people have communication with the other end of a screen, we can observe different levels of intimacy by their behaviour without asking who they're talking with. Wherever the user sets the lens, in the corner or in front of the wall, the range of screen changes with space behind. Then, a different intimacy level has formed.
