【書藝創作】充滿著生命力的紙製紋飾

2019/3/26 — 10:00

此藝術家書籍(Artist's Book)是去年年尾為Detour展覽而創作的,同時呼應著「師友計劃」中的學生作品。沒有跟學生們一起為設計而思考與碰撞,我也創製不了這件作品。透過這些照片,讀者可以仔細欣賞香港本土花紋豐富的色彩與細節,也能感受到紙張的質感與溫度。

翻著書頁,漸漸發現,紙,充滿著生命力,一呼一吸,也散發著懾人的魅力。

透過deTour Nxt師友計劃,學生們為了引起港人對「昔日本土文化」的關注,決定以「字體」及「老街」為題,創作這次展覽的作品。為呼應學生所想,我也以同一概念為基礎,設計以《港產紋飾》為題的書籍,讓導師與學生同步思考、同步學習,彼此間互為反身之鏡,教學相長。

其中,當我帶領學生到中、上環舊區做實地考察之時,看到很多港式花紋的確非常有趣,包括從瓷磚、招牌、騎樓、鐵閘及渠蓋等發現到的。為此,我嘗試以紙張的色彩、質感、剪裁、與重疊效果,展現本土花紋之美。每頁以Laser-cut裁切,再一頁一頁親手縫綴成經摺裝。

若我們能細心觀察我們的都市,會發現很多美麗景象,值得我們研究、探索與保存。

Students of deTour Nxt’s mentorship programme decide to base their creations on the themes of "typeface" and "old neighbourhood" to raise awareness among Hong Kong people on what they consider as “old local culture".

My response to students’ creation comes in the form of a book titled Hong Kong Patterns, which I designed based on the same themes. It is interesting to learn and think synchronously with my students. We’re like each other’s mirrors, mutually reflecting our own strengths and weaknesses.

When I led students through the old districts of Central and Sheung Wan for field study, it was intriguing to see the many uniquely “Hong Kong-styled” patterns around us. These patterns are found on tiles, signs, balconies, iron gates and manhole covers. If we observe our city more closely, we will discover its many beautiful sides that deserve our attention and preservation.
