Hypothesis Voyager is a road trip film that weaves social theory with a trip to the west of the United States. The journey based on the movement of the film travels through the past and future. The images of an ancient cave, modern gallery, volcano, crater, and wild west merge into one loop to stasis the time. The way to find the loophole is to uncover what is immediately hidden right in front of our eyes.
This work consists of several visual components – a gallery social scene suggesting a first-person viewpoint, historical images of human shelter, a narrator speaking of the art works in the gallery, all of which flushes into the story of volcano Mt. Vesuvious showing the historical and mythological perspective of the crater’s formation. The artist’s camera shifts from a first-person onlooker to the vehicle that transports viewers through time and space. The narrator connects each chamber of visual components as she also affectively transforms, creating tours and making detours.


《假設旅行者》是一部公路旅行電影,它將社交理論與美國西部之旅結合在一起。電影運動的旅程貫穿了過去和未來;古老的洞穴,現代美術館,火山,隕石坑和狂野的西部的圖像融合為一個迴圈,以保持時間。唯一能發現跳脫迴圈的方法是去發現那些被掩埋在眼底的。
通過取香雞的景器展示畫廊社交場景的視頻,指出與觀眾相關聯的第一人稱視角。然後,故事變成了發現第一個舉行社交活動的人類住所的歷史(山洞)。通過改變我們看藝術的方式,敘述者將我們帶到畫廊和我們都面臨的迴圈。為了逃脫,時間凍結,藝術家深入研究了維蘇威火山的故事,並從歷史和神話角度看隕石坑的形成方式。藝術家的相機成為穿越時空的觀賞者的交通工具。旁白以帶有情緒的口吻引導觀眾,而路線則是通過引領和繞道將每個不同的場景連接起來。

林子桓,1986年生於台北台灣,目前生活與創作於紐約布魯克林。於普瑞特藝術院於2013年畢業。創作形式以敘事性的影片與浸入式的空間裝置。空間裝置通常包含雕塑與繪畫。議題以研究的方式結合不相同的事件以探索藝術的不同樣貌與數位時代的問題。利用各種各樣的資源,包括神話,歷史事件,科學理論,偽紀錄片,有時是抽象的敘事作品,與沈浸式裝置相互作用。創作的內容以研究為出發點,透過對研究主題的理解後再自我詮釋與其他相關議題結合,在散亂的敘事中漸漸形塑出作品的主題。並透過空間裝置去強化觀者的感受作者對主題的世界觀。作品曾展出在2020台北數位藝術節01Love,"離線瀏覽Offline Browser|2018 第六屆台灣國際錄像藝術展","ADAF 2018 |第14屆雅典數位藝術節",2020關渡美術館個展"假想圖集與旅行者",2017年於台北美術館的個展"銜尾蛇"等。
