自小由阿嬤帶大。高齡九十歲的阿嬤。每天有定時來看阿嬤一小時的居家照護員,兩天洗一次澡,買午餐。此類紀錄片的拍攝形式,除了訴諸我和阿嬤互動的過程,同樣顯示阿茲海默症所帶來的生活影響。過去創作形式關注於社會互動,阿嬤的身體退化導致他個人無法和外界有進一步互動,我從我的觀點去記錄與瞭解。在記述過程中,我也感知自己彷彿在尋根,在日常與瑣碎的生活當中,看見兒時的自己。

I visited my grandma (90 years old) stay alone during day time. This is one day we being together, with another nursing assistant who came to grandma’s home every day for one hour. I try to shoot something we treat it as regards. This video tells about the interaction between grandma and i, it shows the influence of Alzheimer’s disease. My past works focus on the social interaction. Because of the disease and disable, my grandma is very lonely. I hope people can notice the problem by my work.

Place: Tainan, Taiwan.
