Cosmopolitan clichés

-In this city, there are people from all over the world. No body cares who you are and where you are from.

-One of the great things about this country, is that everyone is a immigrant, and everyone is an American.

-New York is a melting pot.

-Multi-culturalism.

-Oh you are from Taiwan? Interesting!

-Lots of people came to this country to take over our jobs, and they didn’t even try to learn English!

-Immigrants are hard working people, they do jobs that the locals don’t want to do. We Americans are lazy.

-My country is beautiful! Nice people, great food and the weather is super. You ask me why am I here? You know, we don’t have democracy, our politics is messed up, it is not safe in my country.

-Freedom of speech.

-It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.

-I have nothing against China and Russia but I am constantly worried about their human rights issues.

-Because of my Jewish background, my interest is to research the trauma of the Holocaust.

-We live in a time of 2.0.

-Twitter and the Arab Spring.

-Social protests in Latin America.

-Post-Soviet art.

-Branding and Americanization.

-DIY, hacking and Culture-jamming.

-The Chinese are coming!

-I am really interested in Eastern philosophy. It’s much more calm, much more balance with the nature. Do you know a guy called LaoZi?

-I am an artist myself. You can describe me as a creative person.

-Excuses me sir, I am heading back home but now I just need one dollar to take the underground. I can give you my address and telephone!

-Do you have a spare cigarette please?

給所有來自過去與未來的人,

這個故事得由過去說起,在2006-2009年之間,以Bbrother為代號,我在台北市街頭進行了四年的塗鴉行動,這個網誌的主要功用,主要作為那時歲月的記錄,關於Bbrother,如有興趣可以看維基百科之解釋:
Bbrother(1982年-),本名張碩尹,是台灣的塗鴉藝術家。Bbrother的號稱,取自歐威爾小說《一九八四》中的「老大哥」(Big Brother)。自2005年開始塗鴉,Bbrother充滿政治意識的模板大量出現在台北街頭,內容從反全球化、反威權、反戰到聲援楊儒門、挺樂生等。並數度為媒體焦點與話題人物。其早期以模板為主,黑白的創作方式…(不過維基這種東西,真的是看看就好)

關於當時的大部分作品,請見此連結:

與 相關報紙資料剪貼集

在那四年短暫卻又混亂的時期,同時間也陸陸續續與參與與主辦了數個活動:

1. 垃圾展:大學最後一年主要學科被刷掉之後的自辦畢業展,又稱「廣告系落選展」(2005).
2. 上山打游擊:在政大的塗鴉行動,與之後所謂的「塗鴉爭議」(2005).
3. 廢墟佔領:在台北市愛國西路上,曾由一群大學生共同佔領了舊台鐵宿舍,並在其中嘗試舉辦影展、展覽、與創立工作室(2006-2007),現為二十四小時自助停車場.
4. 以物易物市集:在以台北市公館為中心,曾舉辦四次以物易物市集,市集內禁用金錢,並且可由勞務交換物品.

最後,這個故事以未來結束,基於人生作為流水般不斷推進、變幻之關係,本網站與本人已不再使用Bbrother發表新作品.
