節目介紹

不論是在健身房慢跑或是在超市購物,看似都是城市生活中極為普遍的日常活動。超市的終點端 — 結帳櫃檯,它永遠都會微笑地等待著我們,就如同飄蕩在跑道盡頭的衝線彩帶般。在現代化超市系統中,一種能夠運送商品的輸送帶成為結帳檯的標準配備,它能夠協助顧客將欲購買的貨物傳送至收銀員並完成結帳。我們也可以說,輸送帶的傳送方向暗示了整體消費活動的目的、運動的終點方向。當表演者站立於輸送帶上嘗試往反方向奔跑時,這樣的運動象徵了對系統的反向衝刺,而將身體置於機械上的視覺效果,多少也帶有與物質生活抗衡的意味。

Program Info

Jogging in a gym or shopping at a supermarket may look like extremely common activities in our urban daily life. Checkout counters in a supermarket will always wait for us with smile, just like the finish line at the end of the running path. The conveyor belt is part of the modern supermarkets. It is the standard equipment at the check-out counters, helping costumers moving items to the cashier and completing the check-out. We can say that the direction of a conveyor belt implicates the purpose of consumerism and terminal direction of movement. If a performer runs against the direction of a conveyor belt, his exertion symbolizes a reverse sprint against the system. The image of the performer putting his body on a machine more or less expresses the idea of fighting against the material life.
