Wuzi Ji 戊子集



by Shao Kun


邵琨是一位非常深出简居的艺术家。《戊子集》的原型是他随身携带的一本剪贴相簿,收集了十年来各种各样的票券、商标、贴纸、卡片、剪报等。

这本小书能明显地感受到他个人独特的品味和洞察力,其中很多消费生活中的时代产物,又能唤起我们这一代人的回忆。每一页的手工放入,就像他多年来一遍又一遍手工移动、调整页面的每一部分,其实就已经完成了“设计排版”的工作。

书里藏有一张贴纸,希望读者能找到它,把它贴到任何地方。甚至你捡到的小纸片也可以放入某一页,成为拼贴的一部分。

Wuzi Ji (Wuzi Collection) is a collage notebook. Cut images from newspaper and magazine, tickets, stickers and other images from printed matter were collected by artist during the past 10 years. Artist’s unique taste and insight are revealed by his collection.

There are many products from contemporary life that can recall our memories. We keep its original album packaging, but change it into a small size. It takes days to manually put all the images into each page of the 100 albums. The artist insists on completing these repetitive steps with us, as well as adjusted every part of each page over and over again. It can be said that the design process of this book hardly uses software like Indesign.

There is a piece of sticker hidden in it, hope you find it and paste it somewhere else.
