與其他 et cetera

滾動的、按字母順序排列的217個名字,它們皆來自美國 #metoo運動中被指控之人。

《與其他》和《葬花》互補,突出我對「同一主題如何以相異方式體現」和「中英語言如何以相異方式回應挑戰」的興趣。

Scrolling 217 names in alphabetical order; all names belongs to those who had been accused under #metoo.

et cetera responds to the dilemma of #metoo movement, raising awareness of sexual harassment/sexual assault/domestic violence while not actually naming the “suspect” until proven guilty. By only listing prename, the work implies how common these situations are—nearly every audience knows someone with a name showed here—and avoids legal problem, a risk everyone calling out faces as well. Its form echos with the motograph news bulletin, “zipper,” once installed atop the Times Tower’s roof, referring to a similar cycle as news: attention attracting at first but indifferent in the end. The title states clearly this list is far from complete. We must do better.
