This series of ceramic Polaroid photos work as a documentation of the food I had during the residency. By recording these memories with the printing process and the long-lasting materials, these memories can be visualized and preserved. Unlike printed photos that faded over time, these ceramic pieces can hold the images permanently. However, ceramic and memory are both fragile. When a piece breaks, it represents a distorted memory, which cannot be fully restored. In terms of the process, finishing a ceramic piece and cooking a dish share the same notion. There are many steps that have to be followed in a specific sequence in order to complete the task. At its presentation, it is up to the public to interpret the final product.

这一系列拍立得形状的陶瓷瓷片用图像的方式记录了我在驻地生活期间吃过的食物,以及进而延伸到这段时间的记忆。这些瓷片通过使用石版画的印刷技术和陶瓷这一种可长期存在的材料,图像化和相对永久地保存了这段记忆。相较会随着时间推移越来越模糊不清的纸质照片,这些陶瓷拍立得在出窑的时候已经展现了这段记忆将会有的最高清晰度。然而,陶瓷和记忆同时又都是脆弱的。想让破碎的陶瓷和模糊的记忆回到最原始的状态是非常困难的。在我的想法中,烹饪食物和创作陶瓷作品分享相似的制作过程。这也是选用食物照片印在陶瓷上的原因。想烧制出美味佳肴和满意的陶瓷作品,特定的原材料、步骤以及正确的顺序都是至关重要的。在成品最终被展示在时刻/观众面前的时候,就是仁者见仁、智者见智了。
