家庭照

題目:家庭照

Family Photo

 

我懷疑, ‘過去’ 的意義其實是否就關係於 ‘已消失了’ 也 ‘已不存在了’ 的演繹。

What is in the past, I wonder, is already gibe and no longer exists ?

家庭照

This family photo

存在過

Once existed

但從線性 ‘時間’ 的概念來看

If we view it using the linear concept of ‘time’

可以是用 ‘過去式’ 去形容

It is in the past

也可以同用 ‘現在進行式’ 的 ‘失去’ – 來形容

Or we may describe it as a ‘loss’ in present continuous tense

如: 失去中 / 失去緊

Like it is being lost

也可以用 ‘已經唔存在’ 去解讀呢啲家庭照

We can also interpret this family photo as something that no longer exists

除非你以嘗試 現在 / 立即 對呢啲相片進行 ‘再接觸’ / ‘再理解’

Unless you imitate re-engagement or re-interpretant in the present moment

否則呢的相片永遠都只停留在 “只是一張照” 的概念

Such photos will always be ‘just photos’

相反

On the contrary

當你 ‘再次接觸’ 呢啲相片時

When you re-engage

再次去 ‘重新解讀’ , ‘重組自己過去’ 既心態去面對

Re-interpret, and re-structure your own past

這樣照片的另外真實先再次被看到

The alternative reality is seen again

而這照片的意義才真正的出現

and the meaning of this photo is truly revealed

這亦是我想透過這想法去再認識何謂 ‘真相’

This is my approach in re-understating the ‘truth’

這行為也可說是一種 ‘淨化’ 的心理使然

Such actions may be driven by a form of ‘Catharsis’

也是一種實際行動

It is also real actions taken

去 ‘淨化’ 一種本身已是慢慢消失及無關重要的歷史記憶

To ‘purify; historical memories that are disappearing and irrelevant

‘淨化’未必是使 ‘過去’ 消失

‘Catharsis’ does not necessarily make ‘the past’ disappear

而是使自己更透明

It, instead, make oneself more transparent
