你有想過,連儂牆在到期後要何去何從嗎? Have you ever thought about recording the Lennon wall?

文中簡報為2019.09.07於g0v短講所用的簡報,以及中英文雙語版的講稿與相關連結,謹以此文感謝所有的合作夥伴與紀錄整趟旅程。

下方簡報連結為2019年9月7日我們在零時政府黑客松中場短講,介紹這個合作案與我們的願景時所用的簡報,為中英文雙語版(前半中文版,後半英文版),歡迎分享。

Here is the google slide we used on g0v at 9/7 (a hackathon, g0v is to substitute “o” in gov to 0(zero). Pronounced as gov-zero.) for a short talk. It’s a brief introduction to the Gong Guan Lennon wall and our goal. (Mandarin and English versions).

連儂牆,然後呢?/ Lennon Wall, THEN?

一張張便條紙一張張海報,傾訴著對於一個社會議題的觀點與情感,不論是支持或是反對,它體現了民主社會能夠包容多元聲音與自由表達的特性。在規範的時間截止,這充滿無數情緒與觀點的連儂牆,何去何從?

Memos and posters lean on the wall, telling different stories and emotions of a social movement without sounds. No matter what idea they hold, Lennon Wall represent the true meaning of a democratic society: understand and accept diversity points of view and having the freedom to express ourselves. However, before the last day of Lennon Wall comes, what can we do for the Lennon Wall?

關於香港的反送中運動/ About 2019 Hong Kong protests
關於香港的反送中運動/ About 2019 Hong Kong protests

香港反送中運動(反對逃犯條例修訂草案運動)為反對香港政府所提出之 《逃犯條例》修訂草案所起之社會運動,在這兩張剪報中我們列出幾項重要遊行與流血事件,隨著武裝警察與黑幫的出現整個活動染上了鮮血,僅管九月四號林鄭月娥說願意退回逃犯條例,但五大訴求仍有四項未給予回應。

The 2019 Hong Kong protests, also known as the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill (ELAB) Movement, are an ongoing series of demonstrations in Hong Kong that aim to oppose the introduction of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill proposed by the Hong Kong government. On the two slides, we listed some major events and incidents. And the injury reports of protesters start to appear after the armed police were deployed and the gangs' intervention. Even though Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said the extradition bill will be withdrawn. However, she doesn’t respond to the other four demands out of five ( withdraw the bill, for leader Carrie Lam to step down, an inquiry into police brutality, for those who have been arrested to be released, and greater democratic freedoms.) till today.

為什麼會拍公館連儂牆/ Why we document Gong Guan Lennon Wall

八月初 Lightbox 攝影圖書室團隊於其開放空間舉辦「香港社運小誌展」,同時得知公館地下道有聲援香港反送中運動的連儂牆,我們覺得透過空間攝影記錄眾人意念的集合體(連儂牆)是件非常有意義且重要的事;而且公館連儂牆為暫時性活動,路權申請期過後就會拆除。Lightbox 團隊期許能藉此作品將連儂牆的價值與群眾意念保存下來,並且將拍攝成果用 CC0 授權將檔案釋出與大眾共享。

At the beginning of August 2019. Lightbox held an exhibition: “Freedom-Hi! Zines from Hong Kong’s civil movement.” At the same time, they received the information of Gong Guan Lennon Wall. They thought it’s an extremely meaningful and important mission to record all the voices and supports of the public via space photography. What’s more, Gong Guan Lennon Wall was a temporary event and will be removed after the application date expired. Lightbox team hopes to use photography to preserve all the values of Gong Guan Lennon Wall and share the final outcomes with the public with CC0 authorization.

拍攝細節(攝影師:陳斌華;助理:阿定;過程紀錄+場務:WH)

Lightbox 詢問藝術創作者陳斌華(擅長大型地景的拼接拍攝、後製與大圖輸出)是否有願意參與拍攝連儂牆,最後決定以中片幅數位機背(6千萬畫素)、廣角鏡頭、每次橫移一個地磚的距離,進行拍攝,進行包圍曝光,以紀錄下所有細節。

Lightbox asked photographer: Pinhua Chen, a talented photographer who is good at large scale photo shooting and merging, retouching and large format printing, to join their project. They decided to use a medium format digital camera (60 million pixels) with a wide-angle lens to record all the details.

8/22 中午場勘、試拍;當晚 20:00 前往拍攝,21:25 左右開拍,直到凌晨 00:30 分才完工;共拍攝近740張照片,並在後製拼接後輸出共 4 張各牆面全景影像檔,以 CC0 授權釋出。

They made the field survey and demonstration at noon on August 22nd. After 85 minutes of preparation, they started shooting around 21:25 and completed all the processes at 0:30 that night. Approximately 740 pictures were taken and merged to four high-resolution panoramic images of the Gong Guan Lennon Wall. All of them are released under CC0 authorization.

高解析度的連儂牆照片可以在攝影師的flicker相簿中觀賞,已CC0授權,照片的jpg檔也可以在Wikicommons上閱覽下載,非常感謝攝影師陳斌華與攝影圖書室Lightbox願意將這些珍貴的照片授權出來在線上永存。

You can find the high-resolution images of the Gong Guan Lennon Wall on Pinhua’s flickr and Wikicommons (Links attached). Many thanks to the photographer, Pinhua Chen, and Lightbox sharing these amazing and precious photos with the public and make them always online.

If you want to record more Lennon wall and upload to Wiki, please do contact us for further discussion. We will try our best to provide all the assistance you need. You can share the links of the Lennon Wall with the ones who are not able to come to see the Lennon Wall by themselves. Printing out the Lennon Walls and bring them to the protests is a brilliant way to let the public see the enthusiasm and sympathy we showed. Merchandises of the Lennon Wall are also welcome.

讓我們帶著連儂牆一起走上街頭吧!/ Let’s bring the Lennon Wall to protests!

隨著時光的流逝連儂牆會逐漸改變或是被沖刷殆盡,原先的樣貌會消失於眾人眼中漸漸淡忘,但我們相信連儂牆所表達的各種聲音、正義與熱情將會永遠保存在網路上不曾消散。

Time can remove the traces of Lennon walls; however, the justice, enthusiasm and sympathy we showed will always online.

自由就像空氣一樣,當你窒息時才會覺得珍貴,願我們都能挺過無數風雨,民主與自由常伴左右。

Freedom of expression is like the air we breathe, we don’t feel it until people take it away from us. May we all can go through the storms and thunder, freedom and democracy always be at our side.
