A Celebrity's Lifetime | 名人的一生有多长

This is a personal web art project. When scrolling down the webpage, the animations of the different celebrity’s epic moments display with the parallax visual effects, and their classical audio documents automatically play at the same time.

Ask ourselves some simple questions. What do we know about Armstrong, Monroe, Martin Luther King or Edison except for their epic moments of life? Do we know where they came from, what they had been through and what experiences made them who they ended up as? Mass media keep mentioning them, but it turned out, it alienated them by extracting iconic idols from the actual lives and locking their lives in their famous time. To the public, they had only lived for several hours, several minutes or even several seconds.

这是一个个人网页艺术项目。当向下滚动页面,表现几个不同的名人的“历史性时刻”的动画依次播放,同时伴随着历史音频档案的声音,产生时空交错的感觉。

此时此刻,问我们自己几个简单的问题。除去那些尽人皆知的成就永恒的历史性时刻,我们对于阿姆斯特朗、梦露、马丁·路德·金以及爱迪生作为个体了解多少?我们是否知道他们从哪来、经历过什么、什么样的事件使他们最终成为了他们?大众媒体总是重复他们的成就,结果是把曾经真实生活过的他们,困锁在他们各自的辉煌时刻,从而将其异化成为一个个抽象的标志性偶像。对于公众来说,这些名人只活在那几个小时、几分钟甚至几秒里。
