印記 Imprinting

瓊麻葉子上具特色的圖樣,是龍舌蘭屬植物的葉痕(leaf imprinting),葉紋有兩種:一是龍舌蘭屬新芽包覆期間,葉面或葉背除具有銀白色粉末外,葉片上常可見到新葉展開時,與外層舊相互滾動壓印遺留下來的痕跡,(表面有突起的質感)。另一相似圖案則的是在日照下,上方的葉子所形成的陰影產生(表面是平面的)。這些新舊互動與他們的對環境適應信息,緩緩悄悄地印記在他們身上。



選擇南竿3個軍事據點(據點 55、53、57),這3個據點在地理位置有其相對應的關係,是相互監視,相互聯繫。我們在這據點裡各擇其中的1-2株瓊麻,再利用日曬紙或藍曬紙放置在瓊麻葉上,停留等待著,可能是幾分鐘,也可能是幾天,隨著時間的變化,跟他們一起,感受他們存在的樣貌。

Being around sisal
Wang, wen shin

Plants such as agave and sisal., because of their sharp spines, were imported and widely planted on the Matsu Islands during the war for defensive facilities. It became a unique landscape of the Matsu. The sisal is not a native plant of Matsu islands; however, they have spent hardship experienced with soldiers after years. As time goes on, the troops withdrew from their positions, sisal still stays here. They became new immigrants from generation to generation.


The distinctive pattern on the leaves of agave and sisal is the leaf (bud) imprinting of the agave plant. The leaf margins are typically lined with sharp spines (teeth) and each leaf is usually tipped with a hard, sharp spine. The leaves are so tightly compacted in the growing tip that the teeth leave imprints on both surfaces of adjacent leaves after they unfurl, overlaying their own complex patterns over the banding.


By being around Sisial and understanding their geological formation, habitat ecology and life history, and capture the sisal by delineating the fragile with sun print paper and blueprint paper. Through these processes, we hope to get closer to Sisal. With the experience as a point of departure, the research /exhibition explores establishing relations with other members in the community of life.
