    《Disappearing White》
    一隻、兩隻、十隻、百隻、千隻……
    千隻、百隻、十隻、兩隻、一隻。
    百萬年來,雪地裡、冰山上、海洋中,披著白色毛皮的北極熊一直站在食物鏈的最頂端,
    牠們奔跑、牠們捕食、牠們游泳,整個北極圈就是牠們的遊樂園。
    然後,一道蒸氣噴出,人來了。冰融了。熊走了。
    如果百年後還有北極熊,牠們會不會來到博物館,才知道自己居住的世界原來是一片白皚皚?
    北極熊可能是環境變遷下受害最深的動物,此系列希望以溫柔、精簡的筆觸,勾勒出物種滅絕的悲傷未來;並運用了大量的白色,站在遠處觀看作品時,並不易看出主題,就像是北極熊在這世界上消失了留下空缺,人們走近關注,北極熊才能存在。
     
     
    《Disappearing White》
    One polar bear, two polar bears, ten, a hundred, a thousand polar bears…
    A thousand polar bears, a hundred, ten, two, one polar bear.
     
    For hundreds of millions of years, polo bears in their white coats stood on top of the food chain.
    They ran, hunt, and swam; the whole Arctic Circle is their theme park.
     
    And then, a swarm of human came. Ice melted. Polar bears gone.
     
    If there are still polar bears a hundred years later, will they know that they used to live in a world covered in white?
    Or will they only be able to know this when they entered the museum?
    Under current global climate change, polar bears are probably the most endangered animals among all.
    I hope, through the gentle and simple strokes, this series of artworks will call for people’s attention to the melancholic future of extinguishing species. Utilizing a massive amount of white, the artworks appear empty and without any detail when seeing them from afar, as if polar bears disappeared from the universe and left an empty space. Only when audiences came closer to the pieces would they see the existence of polar bears, reflecting the reality of the current situation.
