有預知期限的戀愛關系會怎麽樣 - 是項目開始的初衷。

時間是框範空間的極限值,事件填充了空間,而照片是扁平的碾壓工具。它記錄不下巨大的爭吵或時間的壓力或彼此大相徑庭的憂慮,卻將細碎的真實鋪放在最表面,在三個月時間失效以後回看,是樸質而溫暖的。手工書的呈現是細碎的延續,將平淡的線索串聯,企望的是讓這一段“碾壓”過的戀愛景象逐漸立體。而對於我們彼此,是自私的需要一個步驟,如同儀式一樣,將時間正式封停。



What will happen to the love relationship with a predictable term - This is the original purpose of the project

Time is the limit value of framed space. Space is filled with events, while the photo is a flat rolling tool. It can't record the big quarrel or the pressure of time or concerns different from each other. But it will spread the finely real fragments over the surface. When you look back after three months’ time which is valid to the relationship, it is simple but warm. Presentation of handmade books is a continuation of finely real fragments, by which the insipid series will be connected, so it is hopeful that this "rolled" love scene can be gradually stereo. For us each other, this is one step of our selfish need, like a ceremony, to officially ban the eclipse of time.
