The last train

“The last Train” is a kinetic sculpture. It depicts an exhausted white-collar worker who lives in a fast-speed city. He always works overtime, always worries about if he can catch the last train. His cheap old leather shoes have already been in bad shape. His daily life includes: working all day, going home alone, falling asleep torpidly, and waking up to repeat the very same yesterday.

The work utilized the LEGO parts as mechanical component which was programed through LEGO EV3 robotics kit. The surrealistic shoe is made by silicone and a used leather shoe. The shoe mimics the movement of walking. It opens his mouth and makes sound of heavy sigh every few steps, and repeat the same pattern over and over again.

最后一班列车

“最后一班列车”是一个动态雕塑。使用了乐高积木及乐高Ev3主机组成内部的机械及程序结构,外部采用的是皮鞋和硅胶。当盒子后面的开关打开时,这只脚会上下运动,像走路一样走动。并且走两步就会吐出舌头来,发出沉重的喘息声,如此往复。

“最后一班列车”描绘的是深夜加班回家,去乘坐末班车的男子。他廉价的皮鞋已经被磨得变形,要独自一人站在空荡的列车中,独自一人爬上楼梯,洗漱,睡觉。每一天都是重复,疲惫而麻木。在影片之中,这只鞋子爬楼梯爬到一半就停止了,一个乐高的灯光在闪烁,缓慢而迟钝。也是想要表现,都市人常常像机器一样地毫无感觉地麻木重复。
