This is not…

People generally assume that there is a connection between hygiene and uncleanliness, but this relates to personal judgment. Uncleanliness is not necessarily “unclean”. “Unclean” is subjective, as different people have different perspectives toward uncleanliness.

This project is exploring the concept of uncleanliness from a new angle. Specifically, I am curious about people’s response when the association of hygiene and diseases is removed.

This project aims to explore, reinterpret, stimulate discussion and interrogate the meaning of uncleanliness through perception and its manipulation. It is not about what uncleanliness is, but about turning the known into the unknown. A new position is offered to question our ideas and assumptions. The authenticity of the known is stimulated through a new point of view. This project offers to re-evaluate our understanding of uncleanliness. Some contradictions are intentionally generated by the design in order to invite us to reflect on our judgement about “clean” and “unclean”.

「污糟」總是與不衛生直接掛鉤,它就像是一些看來不好,感覺不佳的事物之標籤。久而久之,我們也慣了用這標籤去提防一切,它也成了一條我們與世界接觸的警戒線。但是,「污糟」並不等於不衛生。細菌是無處不在的,絕對的乾淨在生活中可以說是幾乎不存在的,也就是說,哪裡都不是乾淨的。對「乾淨」及「污糟」的區分,只是在於我們怎麼看。

這項目是以一個新的角度去探討「污糟」這個概念。當沒有了關於衛生和疾病的聯想時,「污糟」對於人們來說會變成什麼?

這不是在定義「污糟」,而是將這我們認為自己已經瞭解的概念以一個新的視角去演繹,讓它變得未知,激起對其真實性的新鮮感,從而深化對它的理解。一個「污糟」與「乾淨」之間的矛盾透過設計在質疑著我們對於其的看法。我們是時候審視對於「污糟」的理解。看看在這標籤裡,是不是有一些可能性、一些並不「污糟」的事物等著我們去發掘⋯⋯
