Little Ant & Robot|小螞蟻與機器人

人類和機器人,在城市裡開了一間咖啡館。

將調製咖啡酒水、製作餐點的流程變成舞蹈和音樂。

品嚐人類與機器人合力製作的點心。

把小時候的自己放在掌心裡塑形,送進烤箱加熱,聞著童年甜甜的香氣。

這裡沒有生活和藝術的分別,沒有現在和未來的界線。

這也是一間,巡迴於世界各地角落的遊牧咖啡館。

2021年5月開幕,在台北松山文創園區長期演出,每場次限定15位觀眾。

採預約制,歡迎訂位。

I was born in a wealthy family. When I was 10, my parents went bankrupt due to investment losses. My family of four moved from a luxurious house; to a 40-square foot room. As a child who was constantly moving from one tiny room to another; and seeing my parents go through suicide attempts, I grew up knowing that I had to be a perfect child. I detached all my emotion- passion, anger, and sadness, to be that perfect child, and to be like a robot: obedient, friendly, outstanding, considerate, never rebellious, perhaps no personality.

As a child, my favorite cartoon was Doraemon, a Japanese animation character and a cat robot; who is always there to solve problems for his owner. Apparently I have something with robots since I was little- Is it because they represent a character that is loyal? Or is it because their destiny of being selfless? Thankfully, my parents let me choose to be a professional on stage, which became the best outlet for my compressed emotion. And I wanted to find a way to dance with a robot.

I did my research on the most advanced industrial robots, and KUKA stood out for stability, and the fluid design like the shape of human. In 2010, I called KUKA company in Taiwan. When I told them my idea, they said, “According to the regulation, when the robot is moving, human beings cannot enter the area of its action. If you can find a way, I will lend you a KUKA.”

I have found a way.

For me, “Huang Yi & KUKA” is a process; of beautifying the sorrow and sadness when I grew up. It is the expression of loneliness, self-doubt, self-realization, and self-comfort. I was trying to make a beautiful illusion, just to assure others; that everything was fine. I wanted to remind us of our simplest hope; from the very beginning, that we are all just grown up kids, but still kids.

我出生時,是家境富裕的時期,10歲左右父母因投資失利而家道中落。一家四口從原先擁有花園的透天別墅,搬入一間約4坪大的房間。小時候不斷的搬家,看著各日兼三份工辛苦的父母,我從小就知道自己必須要當一個完美的小孩,抽離自己真正的情感,像演員一樣扮演「完美的小孩」。

像機器人般的完美:聽話、友善、表現優秀、不曾叛逆、沒有個性、為人找想。

小時候最喜歡小叮噹了,他總是能解決大雄的問題。從小就特別喜歡機器人,也許是因為他們的忠心、為他人付出的設定?以及沒有自我、沒有靈魂的宿命。感謝父母讓我學習的是表演,舞台成了我釋放壓縮情感的最佳出口。長大後,我想和機器人一起跳舞。

我搜尋全世界最先進的工業機器人,庫卡被評選為最好的,我很喜歡它仿人類肌肉線條的設計。2010年,我聯絡庫卡公司,和他們說我想與機器人共舞的想法,他們回答:「世界工業機器人法規規定,機器人動作時,人類不可進入其動作範圍之內。你若可以不牴觸這項法規,就將機器人借你。」

我找到了方法。

《黃翊與庫卡》對我來說,是一種美化成長過程中遺憾的方式,裡面揉入感到孤獨的時刻,自我質疑、自我了解的時刻,自我安慰的時刻,以及刻畫一些假象的美好,讓他人放心的時刻。希望創造出這些看起來很美好的、很童真的片刻,能讓看的人暫時忘掉現實,或是想起來,自己也只是一個長大了的小孩。
