Memory is a complex and sometimes contradictory dynamic because the past is continuously rewritten and erased through processes of forgetting. Through memory building, history is constantly negotiated and reconstructed, altering the course of our present and future.

 

There are strong parallels between memory reconstruction and AI image generation. Both are expressions of reality that are accurate yet inaccurate, in the sense that they are a reality that has been artificially constructed. Both rely heavily on nostalgia, the idea of a romanticised past that may or may not have existed.

 

The video installation Reconstructed attempts to reconcile these two realities by using AI, film dialogues, literature and artist’s writings about Wan Chai. The resulting images are at once familiar but alien, reconstructing a mirror of our memories refracted through the lens of machines.

 

記憶是一種本質複雜,並時而出現矛盾的存在,因為在遺忘的過程中,過去會不斷被重寫和抹 去。通過記憶的建構,歷史時時刻刻在重塑、重建,繼而改變我們現在和未來的進程。

 

記憶的建構與人工智能的影像生成有很多相似之處。兩者都是準確又不準確地表達現實,它們皆 為人工製造的現實;同時兩者亦非常依賴懷舊感,一種過去被浪漫化、可能存在或不曾存在的想 法。

 

影像裝置《重構》試圖利用人工智能、電影對白、文學作品和藝術家有關灣仔的寫作來結合這兩個 現實,產生的圖像既熟悉又陌生,透過機器的鏡片折射、重構出一面反射著我們記憶的鏡子。
