我現住在基隆

黃色小鴨的展出位置,就在我開車往返台北上下班的必經路上
每次經過的會面,內心總會跟牠的打聲招呼

可能是這層的關係
我看小鴨帶有特別的親切感情
當我看到身障人士及父母帶癱瘓小孩,全家人推著輪椅
願意走出戶外看小鴨,臉上所露出的歡樂笑容
讓我非常感動
特別是一對結婚新人,在人生重大的階段,選擇在黃色小鴨前拍攝結婚照
相信也會帶給他們,美好而甜蜜的回憶

或許黃色小鴨在參展過程中有些波折,不順利
但牠展示的本質---帶給人們快樂,卻是不變的

前後從小鴨髒汙清洗,到意外爆裂,修補好游回展示,再次為人帶來歡樂
花了半個月時間拍攝,一個星期剪接
大約從一萬九千張照片,剪接成4分鐘的縮時影片

I lived in Keelung, where Giant Rubber Duck, created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, was on display from 21 December 2013 through 8 February 2014.

Everyday when I drove back and forth between Keelung and Taipei for work, I saw the duck and always said hello to it. I enjoyed and felt familiar with the yellow duck especially.

I saw some disabled people or children who used their wheelchairs go outside with their family and enjoy the rubber duck scenery. Their smile always touched me.

I also saw a newly married couple have their pictures taken in front of the giant yellow duck to celebrate their significant time of life, which I believe would definitely leave them with sweet and beautiful memories.

Probably not everything went smoothly during the giant rubber duck exhibition in Taiwan, yet the main purpose- spreading joy around the world- had never been changed.

During the exhibition in Keelung, the giant rubber duck burst, got cleaned and repaired, returned on show, and finally delighted people again. I spent half a month to shoot photos of the duck, and one week to edit the film. It is a 4-minute time-lapse photography made by 19,000 pictures. Enjoy it.
