The Kaleidoscopig Farm

Documentary II
Jia Hsin

Jia-Hsin is the name we registered for our family’s pig farm.

This work follows the kaleidoscopic visualization of the pigsty documented in the film “Pig Five Flower.” It is a visual record of a week of my life in the pigsty, filmed between December 25 and 31, 2009, and attempts to realistically document a special transitional year in my life: 2009 – a year of living as a pig feeding machine.

Each segment of the conveyor belt pictured in this work represents a task that is repeated every day and night. The images were organized and edited according to their sequence in my repetitive daily work procedure. In addition to documenting the reality of the assembly-line type work I did at the pigsty, the images of the production line conveyor belt from my family’s pig-feed manufacturing plant, realistically documents my days as a human pig-meat manufacturing machine.

萬花筒豬舍

紀錄片II - 家興

 「家興」是我家牧場登記的名字。

 此作品延續第一部「豬五花」紀錄片對於豬舍為萬花筒的想像,真實記錄我2009年12月25日至31日,2009年最後7天中的豬舍生活。企圖藉由這部作品,真實地紀錄和呈現我人生中很特別的轉折年:2009年豬舍中日復一日如餵食機器般的生活。

 此作品畫面中輸送帶上,一格為每天早晚會循環與重複執行的一件工作,我將這些循環的工作項目,依時間先後輸送出來編織出這部作品。這部除了是紀錄每天我如同加工業般,機械式地豬舍工作真實呈現,也企圖透過原本家中暫緩的飼料工廠輸送帶映像,輸送著我日復一日如豬肉製造機器般的工作紀錄。
