Compression and dissipated–art research about life by Chien Chih-Kang
Ink and Water Painting
Is every creature created equal? Is every living thing of its own value? What is the meaning of existence? I am a person who always sees things on my own perspective. Growing up in city, I am likely to see ants, cockroaches and rats, the so-called “pests” in constructions of cement. Squashing an ant or killing a group of ants mercilessly doesn’t make me think of life issues. Nor could any act of killing the pests make me feel uncomfortable and suffering. One time, I even went quickly to swat a mosquito without hesitation the moment I saw it landing on a wall, just like the way most of the people would do. The feelings of happiness and fulfillment came to me after the mosquito was killed. Its body was left on the wall, but I just ignored and disregarded it as if there were ever no living thing, as if the mosquito were something less meaningful than lifeless creatures. I once saw a dead rat crushed by a car in front of my house. At first it was quite chubby but in a state of distorted figure. The body of the rat became dried and thick as a piece of paper, and finally it was just gone with the wind. During that time I had gone through a period of serious nausea and fear in mind. As time goes by, I have started cultivating interest in natural change in physical form or appearance and wondering the relationship between the meaning of life and the composition of humans and society. My motivation for the creation started with the observation of animals being crushed and the social values reflected by the media. Then I would like to begin the exploration on all things in life, the common phenomena in nature. What lingered in my mind most, or what interested me most lies not only in the critical judgment on human nature but also in the reasonable question about the existence of being. Releasing an art work is as much as publishing true “fake news” in which a fact is concocted, together with the voice of the creator, his/her choice of the topic, delicate manipulation of the production and even the processing process being clearly disclosed. Key Words: Compression , Dissipation, Existence, Being, Simulation, Ink and Water Painting
