砂之塔〜知道太多事情的邻居

sunano-title亮點:
• 若有個人跟你說「就算全世界與你為敵,我還是會站在你這邊的」,你會願意跟他走嗎?
• 女人為了顧全大局,會說些美麗謊言。不久之後,她會天真地相信謊言會漸漸成真。
• 有些東西雖然是扭曲的,但是充滿著愛。

Findings beyond the shattered screen

“If technology is a drug – and it does feel like a drug – then what, precisely, are the side effects? This area – between delight and discomfort – is where Black Mirror, my new drama series, is set. The ‘black mirror’ of the title is the one you’ll find on every wall, on every desk, in the palm of every hand: the cold, shiny screen of a TV, a monitor, a smartphone.”
– Charlie Brooker

The Art of Creative Thinking by Rod Judkins (2015)

“The genuinely innovative are led by their passion and not by rational ambitions. New ideas spring from personal interests, even if they seem irrelevant to the task at hand. Innovative people have to put practical considerations to one side because thinking about logistics leads to thinking logically, which ties down the leaps of the mind required to create something unique.”
(excerpt from be practically useless)

“Accidents reflect reality more accurately than does perfection. Perfection is the aberration. Think of accident as an answer in search of a different question. Work out what that different question is. It is probably more interesting than the one you were asking.”
(excerpt from plan to have more accidents)

(the notables from this book)
Georgia O’Keeffe (grow old without growing up)
Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao by Frank Gehry (bring chaos to order)
Henry Moore (feel inadequate)
Mark Rothko (be conservative revolutionary)
Jeff Koons (search high and low)
Chuck Close (take advantage of a disadvantage)

“Something badly done can be refreshing. Being prepared to be uncool or nerdy can be charming, It’s a way of showing that you don’t care what anyone else thinks. The world is full of people who dedicate their lives to seeking approval.”
(excerpt from if you can’t be really good, be really bad)

Nara Note by Yoshimoto Nara (2013)

把夢留在過去。
因為昨天做的夢,會告訴我今天應該做什麼事,
那就能在明天變成現實。
空想和想像只會從有可能發生的事情產生。
因為具備各種的要素,而且確實在眼前,
從那裡擁有的想像力所誕生的事物,全部都擁有可能性。

我不幻想做夢。
夢是在今天實行的事,總有一天會實現。

Four Faces of Eve (1996)

瘋狂的九十年代,是一個充滿實驗性的年代。個人覺得四部短片分開欣賞會比較好消化。
