The Polish

Material  /  Copper, Brass

Year  /  December 2012
 

This project is to make a gift to a character in any book. The gift itself must be carrying certain messages, and can also represent me as a designer. What I choose is Watanabe, a main character in the book Norwegian Wood written by Haruki Murakami.

Here's the letter which explains my gift and also my wishes to him. 

材質:紅銅 / 黃銅

主題是要做一個禮物,送給小說故事裡的人物,作品本身要能傳達設計者要給小說人物的訊息,也要能代表設計者本身。

我選的對象,是村上春樹 “挪威的森林” 裡的渡邊,他是個因為某些無解痛苦而卡在過去和未來間的男人。

小說中描寫他在痛苦時會去做些無關緊要的瑣事,像是打掃庭院,或是修理壞掉的吉他等等,等做完這些事,他的心情便稍微舒緩。

我利用人使用砂紙拋光金屬時,耗時且需要高度專注與觀察力的特性,設計了一系列要使用者拋光後才能變成真正鏡子的銅鏡送給他。

以下是隨著鏡子,附給他的信:

- -


Dear Watanabe,

When you are lost, when you have no place to go escaping from all those depressing facts that eat your mind, when you can’t get out of the chains of the past, pain in the present, and feel powerless for the future.

Please stop doing everything, even thinking. Just start to polish these mirrors. Think nothing, focus on the polishing itself, soon or later you can see yourself again not only in the mirrors, but also in your heart.

Best Wishes.

Regards,
HsuanTzu


親愛的渡邊,

當你感到迷惘,當你覺得這世界再也沒有任何一處能讓你逃離心裡以及現實中的苦,當你無法掙脫過去的枷鎖,擺脫不了現在的痛,以及對未來感到無力時,請你停止做任何事,甚至停止思考,就只專注在拋光鏡子,從號數最小的砂紙開始,配上水以及光線,一點一點地讓鏡子能再反射出你的容貌。

相信不久之後,你能在鏡子,以及心裡,再度看見自己。

祝,好

軒慈
