《與細菌混了3000年》活動快訊 3000 Years Among Microbes

《與細菌混了三千年》借鑒於科幻文學、新興科技與後人類觀點,經由原型開發、實驗錄像、太空模擬、線上平台與利益關係者訪談等途徑,開啟一系列關於如何脫離殖民隱喻看待太空的討論。

活動介紹

《與細菌混了3000年》通過仍在迅速發展中的科技,從微生物到行星尺度,以「共生(symbiosis)」 和「親屬關係(kindship)」邏輯去推測一個別樣的太空未來。

借鑒於科幻文學、新興科技與後人類觀點,本計畫經由原型開發、實驗錄像、太空模擬、線上平台與利益關係者訪談等途徑,開啟一系列關於如何脫離殖民隱喻看待太空的討論,走訪了臺灣國家太空中心及美國太空總署(NASA)在60年代太空競賽期間於西部沙漠建立的月球模擬基地,實地取景拍攝並採集微生物樣本,將極端地貌與顯微影像並置,模糊人與微生物的分野,進而以「共生體(holobiont)」概念取代人類「個體」的定義。

《與細菌混了3000年》像是一道想像力的測驗,思考人類應如何在太空探索(殖民)進程,銘記人類世(Anthropocene)的教訓,將共生觀念植入對星際生態系的想像之中。正因為太空探索與軍備競賽、地緣政治、經濟利益高度相關,所以當商業化契機使宇宙成為等待被開拓的「新邊疆(new frontier)」時,我們希望在已經不再是空想的「太空時代」提出一種新的語言—一種有別於殖民隱喻的語言。從氣候變遷到貧富差距,我們已見識到要解決這些人類製造出的問題有多困難。而在太空,我們有機會從一開始就做出更好的選擇。

“3000 Years Among Microbes” speculates on an alternative space future through rapidly evolving technologies from the microbial to the planetary scale, with the logic of “symbiosis” and “kinship.”

Drawing on science fiction literature, emerging technologies, and post-human perspectives, the project opens up a series of discussions on framing space exploration outside the metaphor of colonization through prototyping, experimental videos, space simulations, online platforms, and stakeholder interviews. In the process of project development, Zone Sound Creative studio and artists visited Taiwan National Space Organization and a NASA lunar mock-up base in the Western Desert during the 1960s space race, filmed on locations, and collected microbial samples. Juxtaposing extreme landscapes with microscopic images blurs the distinction between humans and microbes and further replaces the definition of the human “individual” with the concept of “holobiont.”

“3,000 Years Among Microbes” is a test of imagination that considers how humans should approach space exploration (colonization), remembering the lessons of the Anthropocene and embedding the concept of symbiosis in the vision of interstellar ecosystems. Because space exploration is highly relevant to the arms race, geopolitics, and economic interests, we hope to propose a new language when “space age” is no longer a fantasy, a language distinguished from the metaphor of colonization, as commercialization turns the universe into a “new frontier” waiting for exploration. From climate change to the wealth gap, we have seen how difficult it is to solve these human-generated problems. In space, we have the opportunity to make better choices right from the start.

《與細菌混了三千年》系列活動- 現正開放免費報名!

 𝟏. 《與細菌混了三千年-藝術家線上座談分享會》3000 Years Among Microbes- Online Artist Talk

本次線上講座,邀請到三位主要創作者紀柏豪、徐叡平、Nancy Valladares與大家分享《與細菌混了三千年》的創作歷程與心得,包含立方衛星與微生物模型的設計概念,到團隊實際走訪美國太空總署(NASA)在60年代於西部沙漠建立的月球模擬基地、還有實地取景拍攝並採集微生物樣本、以及兩位藝術家參與MIT的「無重力飛行」項目,與太空發展利益關係關係者的相關訪談等等。
藝術家如何透過微生物的視角去思考描述有別於過往的「第一類接觸(first contact)」,我們又該從什麼角度去思考「共生」與「太空探索」?我們必須記得,共生並不是一件和平的交易,而生存必然揉雜商榷、衝突與協作,我們又該如何謹記「人類世 (Anthropocene)」的教訓,不再重蹈覆徹?

參與藝術家介紹

紀柏豪 Chi Po-Hao /  Taiwan 台灣
現為「融聲創意」負責人,畢業於麻省理工學院「藝術、文化與科技」項目。兼具經濟學與音樂背景,他的藝術實踐大多源自於對規則與邊界的好奇,常經由觀察日常生活中的差異來設計方法。近期主要關注方向為被連結實體如何在網路中共構彼此,以及人與科技物的能動性與協同可能。曾於荷蘭V2動態媒體中心(2014)、 西班牙Laboral藝術與創意產業中心(2016)、英國FACT藝術與創意科技基金會(2018)等科技藝術機構駐村,隔年獲選為國家兩廳院短期駐館藝術家,作品曾於國內外諸多藝術場館及活動中呈現 。

Po-Hao Chi is an interdisciplinary practitioner who works at the fusion of art, music, and technology. His practice usually stems from the fascination with boundaries and guidelines to associate diversities in everyday life. His recent research is about agencies and collaborative capacities between humans and artifacts with the evolving connectivity. Chi graduated from the Art, Culture, and Technology program at MIT and received his MMus from Goldsmiths, University of London, and a B.A. in Economics from National Taiwan University.

 

徐叡平 Hsu Yuping /  Taiwan 台灣
畢業於臺灣大學醫學院職能治療學系、現任麻省理工學院藝術、文化與科技研究生。近年創作著重反向操作生物科技的語彙與方法探討人類作為共生體,對非人類生命體的義務與責任。曾參與策展,展覽於國立台灣美術館數位方舟與台灣福利社,作品曾獲高雄獎、全國美術獎,入圍全國美術展、台北美術獎、台北數位藝術獎,亦於澳洲(Symbiotic A)、巴賽隆納(hangar.org)、馬德里(MedialabPrado)及荷蘭(V2動態媒體中心)駐村。

Rae Yuping Hsu (she/they/it) is an artist and educator from Taipei, Taiwan, currently based in New York, United States. Their practice is research-based and materially-informed, spanning across multiple disciplines and materials; from hot glass to fibroblasts, passports to fecal sports. Working with the MIT Media Lab’s Space Exploration Initiative, her recent works speculate on microbial ethics within interplanetary travel, reconstructed against narratives of colonization. It is currently working on a book that explores the notion of a “living archive” of contamination and incorporation. A performance of endosymbiosis in microgravity. A film on alternative cosmologies regarding the celestial and its extended voyages. It holds a Masters of Science in Art, Culture, and Technology from MIT, and currently teaches at Parsons, The New School and SVA.

 

Nancy Dayanne Valladares / 宏都拉斯 Honduras
Nancy Dayanne Valladares (b.1991) 來自宏都拉斯的德古西加巴 (Tegucigalpa),為跨領域藝術家及電影工作者。她的作品致力於處理植物性想像的建構及之中的幽靈。受化學民族誌、批判性植物研究和未來主義影響,其影像實踐探討光學工具的構成,及其伴隨的視覺機制。她的創作近距離檢驗了攝影與植物性想像、化學遺產的歷史糾纏。她在芝加哥藝術學院取得了美術學士學位,並在麻省理工學院獲得藝術文化與科技的碩士學位。她近期為哈佛大學電影研究中心的研究員,也是麻省理工學院跨媒體敘事計劃 Fialkow 研究員,現駐村於德紹包浩斯校舍。她的作品曾展覽及放映於麻省理工 Sakiya 學院 (巴勒斯坦) 、Wiesner 藝廊、Chuquimarca 計劃、歌德學院 Sullivan 藝廊、德紹包浩斯、芝加哥藝術學院、亞洲藝術研究所及 Roman Susan 藝廊。

Nancy Dayanne Valladares (b.1991) is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Her work grapples with the constructions of vegetal imaginaries and the specters that lie within. Influenced by discourses on chemoethnography, critical plant studies, and speculative futurism, her image-based practice delves into the formation of optical tools and their accompanying visual regimes. Her practice closely examines photography’s historical entanglement with botanical imaginaries and chemical legacies.

Valladares completed her Bachelor in Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Masters of Science in Art, Culture, and Technology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She was recently a Fellow at Harvard University’s Film Studies Center, A Fialkow Fellow from the Transmedia Storytelling Initiative at MIT, and a resident at Bauhaus Dessau. Her work has been exhibited and screened at Massachusett’s Institute of Technology, Sakiya (Palestine), Weisner Gallery, Chuquimarca Projects, Sullivan Galleries Goethe Institute, Bauhaus Dessau,  The Art Institute of Chicago, The Research House for Asian Art, and Roman Susan Gallery.
