Developing your proposal for the 2014 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project

Here are some things for artists to consider as they start to develop their proposals for the 2014 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project.
在此列出幾個要點,提供各位欲參與「2014成龍溼地國際環境藝術計畫」提案的藝術家參考:

1.Make your proposal fit the theme “Fishing for a Better Environment.”This phrase can mean at least two different things in English.  “Fishing” for something means looking or asking for something.  In this meaning the artwork could be hinting at or asking for ways to make the environment better.  If we take the phrase “Fishing for a Better Environment” literally it means doing fishing or fish farming in a way that is better for the environment.
請切合主題「Fishing for a Better Environment」,中文標題雖譯為「希望魚寮」,但仍希望大家能夠去思考英文標題至少隱含的雙重意義。「Fishing」for something 意指期待或尋求某物,在這樣的解釋之下,藝術創作可以隱喻或尋求讓環境變得更好的方法。而如果照字面解釋「Fishing for a Better Environment」一詞,意思是用對環境比較好的方式從事漁撈或養殖。

2.Make your proposed artwork have something to do with fish farming and seafood production, the main way of earning a living in Cheng Long.  The artwork should encourage better environmental practices.  Fish farming done in an intensive way can be very polluting to the soil and the water, and it might require pumping lots of underground fresh water to fill the fish farming ponds.  Over pumping of the underground water is one of the things that causes the ground in the Cheng Long area to keep sinking.
試圖讓提案的作品與養殖或成龍村民賴以為生的水產品產生關連,希望作品能鼓舞更多讓環境變得更好的行動。集約式的養殖方式對水和土地都是負擔,也可能使用過多的地下水。 超抽地下水是導致成龍地區持續地層下陷的原因之一。

3. Make your proposal appealing to the fish farmers in Cheng Long and the children and local community people as well as the art world.  This year we want the art installations to be on, in and around the fishing huts alongside the Cheng Long Wetlands.  The artwork can improve the structure as well as the aesthetic appeal of a fishing hut. The fishing huts that the local fishermen use are places to store fishing supplies and also places to wait and pass the time with friends before the next job on the fish farm begins. The fishing huts in Cheng Long are mostly old brick and wooden structures, and some are in bad repair, but art can make them extraordinary!  The local fishing huts are owned by individual fish farmers in the village, and the art installations we put there will have to appeal to the fishermen as well as to the artists and art lovers.
想辦法讓你的提案能打動成龍村從事養殖的阿伯,吸引小朋友、其他村民,以及藝術領域的朋友。此屆的藝術創作我們希望能裝置在成龍溼地旁的魚寮裡、外及周邊。藝術家的作品希望有助於改善魚寮本身的結構狀況,並能讓魚寮更具美的感染力。魚寮是當地養殖阿伯存放飼料、工具的地方,也是等待進排水、和朋友打發時間的好所在。大部分的魚寮是磚造或木作結構,有的狀況不太好,但是藝術可以讓他改頭換面!魚寮都是養殖阿伯們個人所有,所以我們創作的藝術裝置,要慎重考慮到阿伯們的觀感,當然也要能夠引起藝術家及藝術愛好者的共鳴。

4. Make sure your proposed artwork can last well through typhoons, hot sun and heavy rains.  We want the artworks to last at least one year and hopefully longer.  The artwork should be safe and secure and lasting as well as meaningful and aesthetically appealing.
請確保你提案的作品可以經得起颱風、豔陽及暴雨的考驗。我們希望藝術作品至少能維持一年,甚至更久。請務必在思考作品的意義及美學的同時,考慮到作品的安全、牢固及持久性。

5. Make sure the artwork does not interfere with the fish farmer’s daily work of fish farming. The sculpture installations can be on top of a fishing hut, inside it or coming out of it, and also around it.  But, remember the fish farmer still has to be able to use his fishing hut comfortably, and the artwork cannot interfere with the necessary work of the fish farmer.  Communication and keeping flexible are necessary in this art project!
請確保你的作品不會打擾養殖阿伯們每日的工作。作品可以裝置在魚寮屋頂上、魚寮裡、或從魚寮裡鑽出來,也可以是在魚寮周邊。但是,請記得不論何種形式,都要讓養殖阿伯們能夠很方便地使用他的魚寮,不會干擾每日養殖工作的進行。溝通及保持彈性在這個藝術計畫裡是必要的。

6. Make sure the proposed artwork uses natural materials and recycled materials that will not harm the environment and that hopefully will improve the environment in Cheng Long.  What the artist makes in Cheng Long should not pollute the water, soil or air by the materials or the techniques used, and it should not harm the wildlife.  There are also many birds, fish, plants and other life in Cheng Long Wetlands, so the artist needs to consider all of these in making a proposed artwork.
請確保你所提案的作品使用自然的素材或是對環境無害的回收材料,希望有助成龍村環境的改善。藝術家在成龍進行創作的材料及使用的技法,絕對不可以污染水源、土壤及空氣,也不可以傷害野生物。許多的鳥類、魚、植物等都以成龍溼地為家,所以藝術家在提案時應該要能將此全面考慮進去。

Think about what you can do for a fishing hut. In Cheng Long.  Here again are some photos of Cheng Long fishing huts, and the next post will have the dimensions of some of the fishing huts so keep your eye here! You can pick one of these fishing huts to use for your installation proposal, or you can make a proposal that might work on, in or around almost any fishing hut.  Once the artists are selected and come to Cheng Long, we will make the final decisions all together about which sculpture installation will be where.  We hope that we can have an environmental art trail along the Cheng Long Wetlands where viewers can walk from fishing hut to fishing hut experiencing the 2014 artworks.
想一想你可以為一間魚寮做什麼?再一次放上成龍村魚寮的照片,而在下一則部落格裡,我們將會提供幾個魚寮尺寸供大家參考,記得再回來查詢喔!!你可以選擇其中一間魚寮來作提案,或是提出一個可以通用於任何一間小魚寮裡裡外外及周邊的構想。一旦你獲選來到成龍村之後,我們會和所有的藝術家一起討論確認作品裝置的地點。我們希望能在成龍溼地旁創造出一條環境藝術步道,讓參觀的人可以從這間魚寮走到那間魚寮,一路觀賞2014的藝術創作。
