蚂蚁过河 / Ant Crossing River

张晋将医用X光片当成传统的银盐相纸使用,在经过暗房的操作后,被拍摄的植物在微蓝的X光片上如同高倍显微镜下被放大的人体血管或身体细胞。艺术家通过预设一只蚂蚁作为观者,提供了一种完全不同的植物观看方式。对植物观照方式的变迁,在某种程度上暗示了个人与世界的垂直关系。

Zhang Jin uses X-ray sheets as traditional gelatin silver papers. After darkroom processing, the plants being photographed appear on the dim blue X-ray prints as though enlarged human veins or cells under high-power microscope. Through assuming an ant as the viewer, the artist provides a completely different way to observe plants. The transition of viewing plants to some extent hints at the vertical relationship between an individual and the world.
