當過去被遺忘的光被再度凝視,並被期待去服務未來的黑暗。

部落對抗機器(Tribe Against Machine)是源自台灣的一項創新社會設計項目,旨在為藝術家、黑客、科學家、行動者創造通道與仍然保留其繼承傳統的偏遠社區進行互動,從而創造一個豐富而富有建設性的交流空間:透過結合跨學科和傳統文化合作的工作坊,或以遊牧式的「營」,製造社群文化群體彼此跨度的窗口。

該項目利用文化和藝術形式建立來自不同社會之間的共同語言交流。通過一起生活在一個部落村莊中,由此產生的交流不僅涉及技能和技術,還涉及對手工業世界的生產系統和工業世界的時間差異的沉浸式體驗。儘管參與者對技能交流感到興奮,例如部落的植物學知識為對生物紡織品設計感興趣的參與者帶來了靈感,以及導電縫線的應用如何激發了傳統工藝者,但由於我們很難擺脫互聯網的影響,它定義了時間的速度,而時間決定了我們的生產系統:更強大且有趣的影響是,「營」這個媒體,如部落對抗機器或是其他藝術家獨立社群,如何借助全球化的影響促進和開發中國家的部落進行文化交流。

“The light from the lost past is being gazed upon once again and is expected to serve the future in dark.”

Tribe Against Machine is an experimental innovative social design project in Taiwan and aims to create opportunities for artists, hacker, activist to interact with isolated communities that still live by their inherited traditions, in order to create an rich and constructive space for exchange, to promote cultural exchanges between societies and develop new social production systems through science and art workshops, nomadic camp system, or radical participation in existing activities in local communities.

The aim of the project was to explore the common language between people from different societies through artistically and cultural approach. By living together in a tribal village, the exchange that resulted from it was not only about skills and technologies, but also involved an immersive experience in the difference of sense of time between the production system of the crafts world and industrial world. Although the participants were excited by the skill exchange – such as the tribal knowledge of botany bringing up inspiration to participants who have interests in bio textile design, and how conductive threads application inspired the traditional craftsman – It is extremely difficult for us to get away from the influence of internet since it rules the speed of time, and the time rules our production system: a stronger and more interesting impact is, how the “camp” media, such as Tribe Against Machine or other independent artists communities can promote the culture exchange with the tribes in the developing countries by the aid of globalization.
