So, I'm an artist藝術家.
0
820
1648
我是個藝術家。
00:18
I live生活 in New York紐約, and I've been working加工 in advertising廣告
1
2468
2454
我住在紐約,從事廣告業--
00:20
for -- ever since以來 I left school學校,
2
4922
2645
從我畢業後就入行
00:23
so about seven, eight years年份 now,
3
7567
1621
至今已經七、八年了
00:25
and it was draining排水.
4
9188
1556
而且工作很累人
00:26
I worked工作 a lot of late晚了 nights. I worked工作 a lot of weekends週末,
5
10744
2713
我常常沒日沒夜地工作,週末也很常加班
00:29
and I found發現 myself never having time for all the projects項目
6
13457
3170
我發覺自己根本沒有時間
00:32
that I wanted to work on on my own擁有.
7
16627
2302
去做自己想做的計畫
00:34
And one day I was at work and I saw a talk
8
18929
1962
有天當我在工作時
00:36
by Stefan斯特凡 SagmeisterSagmeister on TEDTED,
9
20891
2231
我看到施德明 (Stefan Sagmeister) 在 TED 上的演講
00:39
and it was called "The power功率 of time off,"
10
23122
1655
題為《休假的力量》("The power of time off")
00:40
and he spoke about how every一切 seven years年份,
11
24777
2636
他講到了他怎樣每隔七年
00:43
he takes a year off from work so he could
12
27413
2107
就讓自己休一年的假
00:45
do his own擁有 creative創作的 projects項目, and I was instantly即刻 inspired啟發,
13
29520
3665
好去進行自己的創意計畫
那讓我靈機一動
00:49
and I just said, "I have to do that. I have to take a year off.
14
33185
3389
我心想:「我也要這樣做,我要休一年的假
00:52
I need to take time to travel旅行 and spend time with my family家庭
15
36574
4479
好騰出時間旅行跟與家人相處
00:56
and start開始 my own擁有 creative創作的 ideas思路."
16
41053
2286
還要策劃自己的創意構想。」
00:59
So the first of those projects項目 ended結束 up being存在
17
43339
3639
而我著手進行的第一個計劃
01:02
something I called "One Second第二 Every一切 Day."
18
46978
3566
就是這個我取名為「每日一秒」的計劃
01:06
Basically基本上 I'm recording記錄 one second第二 of every一切 day of my life
19
50544
2334
基本上,就是錄下我每天生活中的一秒
01:08
for the rest休息 of my life,
20
52878
2735
並且會一直錄下去
01:11
chronologically按時間順序 compiling編譯 these one-second一秒
21
55613
2937
按時序將這每一秒串連起來
01:14
tiny slices of my life into one single continuous連續 video視頻
22
58550
4302
將我生命中的片刻組成一部連貫的影片
01:18
until直到, you know, I can't record記錄 them anymore.
23
62852
5677
直到我再也不能錄下來的時候
01:24
The purpose目的 of this project項目 is, one:
24
68529
2357
這個計劃的目的是
第一
01:26
I hate討厭 not remembering記憶 things that I've doneDONE in the past過去.
25
70886
4724
我討厭忘記以前自己所做過的事
01:31
There's all these things that I've doneDONE with my life
26
75610
2710
有好一些事情是我盡心盡力去做的
01:34
that I have no recollection回憶 of
27
78320
1914
卻無從記憶起
01:36
unless除非 someone有人 brings帶來 it up, and sometimes有時 I think,
28
80234
1716
除非有人提起
有時候我可能還會想說
01:37
"Oh yeah, that's something that I did."
29
81950
3571
「喔,我是做過這樣的事情」
01:41
And something that I realized實現 early on in the project項目
30
85521
1641
而在這個計劃剛開始的時候
我就發現
01:43
was that if I wasn't doing anything interesting有趣,
31
87162
2724
如果我當天沒做什麼有趣的事情
01:45
I would probably大概 forget忘記 to record記錄 the video視頻.
32
89886
2479
我可能就會忘記拍下影片
01:48
So the day -- the first time that I forgot忘記, it really hurt傷害 me,
33
92365
3473
所以那天 -- 當我第一次忘記拍攝的時候
我真的很難過
01:51
because it's something that I really wanted to --
34
95838
2475
因為我真的很想這樣做 --
01:54
from the moment時刻 that I turned轉身 30, I wanted
35
98313
2196
打從我踏入 30 歲的那刻
我就想要
01:56
to keep this project項目 going until直到 forever永遠,
36
100509
3350
將這個計劃一直延續到永遠
01:59
and having missed錯過 that one second第二, I realized實現,
37
103859
2446
而當我忘了那一秒後
我發覺
02:02
it just kind of created創建 this thing in my head
38
106305
3753
這個想法就好像烙印在我腦海裡似的
02:05
where I never forgot忘記 ever again.
39
110058
2263
是我再也不會忘記的
02:11
So if I live生活 to see 80 years年份 of age年齡,
40
115598
2999
所以如果我活到 80 歲
02:14
I'm going to have a five-hour五小時 video視頻
41
118597
2633
我就會有一部長達五小時的影片
02:17
that encapsulates包囊 50 years年份 of my life.
42
121230
2749
濃縮了我五十年的人生
02:19
When I turn 40, I'll have a one-hour一小時 video視頻
43
123979
2392
而當我四十歲的時候
我就有一部片長一小時的影片
02:22
that includes包括 just my 30s.
44
126371
5237
紀錄了我三字頭的歲月
02:27
This has really
45
131608
1528
為了拍攝
02:29
invigorated盤活 me day-to-day日復一日, when I wake喚醒 up,
46
133136
3275
我每天起床的時候都朝氣蓬勃
02:32
to try and do something interesting有趣 with my day.
47
136411
2887
並嘗試去做些有趣的事
好讓那天不會白白度過
02:42
Now, one of the things that I have issues問題 with is that,
48
146757
3508
說到這裏
其中我遇到的一個問題是
02:46
as the days and weeks and months個月 go by,
49
150265
4198
隨着時光飛逝、日月如梭
02:50
time just seems似乎 to start開始 blurring模糊
50
154463
1817
時間就好像開始變得模糊
02:52
and blending混紡 into each other
51
156280
1922
日復一日,日子重疊起來
02:54
and, you know, I hated that,
52
158202
3731
但你知道,我討厭這樣
02:57
and visualization可視化 is the way to trigger觸發 memory記憶.
53
161933
5029
而視覺畫面是喚醒記憶的絕佳辦法
03:10
You know, this project項目 for me is a way for me
54
174992
2889
可想而知
這個計劃對我而言
03:13
to bridge that gap間隙 and remember記得 everything that I've doneDONE.
55
177881
3294
是能將空白填補起來
好記住我曾經做過的所有事情
03:17
Even just this one second第二 allows允許 me to remember記得
56
181175
2567
即使只有一秒也足以讓我記起
03:19
everything else其他 I did that one day.
57
183742
2277
那一天所做過的其他事情
03:21
It's difficult, sometimes有時, to pick that one second第二.
58
186019
2662
有時要挑選這一秒挺困難的
03:24
On a good day, I'll have maybe three or four seconds
59
188681
3184
在美好的一天裡頭
可能會有三到四秒
03:27
that I really want to choose選擇,
60
191865
1713
是我都很想選的
03:29
but I'll just have to narrow狹窄 it down to one,
61
193578
2149
但我只能選其中的一秒
03:31
but even narrowing變窄 it down to that one allows允許 me
62
195727
1964
但即使只剩下一秒
也還是能讓我
03:33
to remember記得 the other three anyway無論如何.
63
197691
2480
記起其餘的三秒
03:36
It's also kind of a protest抗議, a personal個人 protest抗議,
64
200171
3541
這個做法也是一種抗議
純屬個人想法
03:39
against反對 the culture文化 we have now where people
65
203712
2395
針對我們現有的一種文化
03:42
just are at concerts音樂會 with their cell細胞 phones手機 out
66
206107
2442
那就是當人們觀賞演唱會的時候
大家都只顧拿着手機
03:44
recording記錄 the whole整個 concert音樂會, and they're disturbing煩擾的 you.
67
208549
2149
攝錄整場演唱會
但那其實會干擾到人
03:46
They're not even enjoying享受 the show顯示.
68
210698
1235
他們自己也沒有好好欣賞表演
03:47
They're watching觀看 the concert音樂會 through通過 their cell細胞 phone電話.
69
211933
3105
他們只是透過手機在看演唱會
03:50
I hate討厭 that. I admittedly固然 used to be that guy a little bit,
70
215038
3968
我討厭這樣
我承認我曾經也是如此
03:54
back in the day, and I've decided決定 that the best最好 way
71
219006
2818
但那是過去的事了
現在我決定
03:57
for me to still capture捕獲 and keep a visual視覺 memory記憶 of my life
72
221824
5581
要以畫面來紀錄我人生中的最佳方式
04:03
and not be that person, is to just record記錄 that one second第二
73
227405
3086
並且不做那個反面教材的人
就是只錄下那一秒
04:06
that will allow允許 me to trigger觸發 that memory記憶 of,
74
230491
2269
那足以觸發我記憶的一秒鐘
04:08
"Yeah, that concert音樂會 was amazing驚人. I really loved喜愛 that concert音樂會."
75
232760
3375
「沒錯,那場演唱會很精采,我很喜歡那場演唱會。」
04:12
And it just takes a quick, quick second第二.
76
236135
5418
即使只是浮光掠影的那一秒
就已經足夠
04:17
I was on a three-month三個月 road trip this summer夏季.
77
241553
2879
今年夏天,我踏上三個月的駕車之旅
04:20
It was something that I've been dreaming做夢 about doing my whole整個 life,
78
244432
2854
那是我人生中一直夢寐以求的事
04:23
just driving主動 around the U.S. and Canada加拿大
79
247286
2493
就是開著車走遍美國和加拿大
04:25
and just figuring盤算 out where to go the next下一個 day,
80
249779
3239
並且在當天才知道隔天要前往的目的地
04:28
and it was kind of outstanding優秀.
81
253018
2605
那種經驗著實讓人回味無窮
04:31
I actually其實 ran out, I spent花費 too much money on my road trip
82
255623
3712
我其實耗盡了所有積蓄
因為這一路上的開支太多了
04:35
for the savings that I had to take my year off,
83
259335
2990
原來打算用來放假一年的儲蓄都不夠用
04:38
so I had to, I went to Seattle西雅圖 and I spent花費 some time
84
262325
2894
所以我去了一趟西雅圖
我必須花一些時間
04:41
with friends朋友 working加工 on a really neat整齊 project項目.
85
265219
3550
與朋友一起接了一個條件不錯的案子來做
04:52
One of the reasons原因 that I took my year off was to spend more time with my family家庭,
86
276111
3760
當初我休假一年的其中一個原因
就是想抽空多陪伴家人
04:55
and this really tragic悲慘 thing happened發生 where
87
279871
3410
而這當中也發生了件不幸的事情
04:59
my sister-in-law嫂子,
88
283281
1605
我的嫂嫂
05:00
her intestine suddenly突然 strangled勒死 one day,
89
284886
3436
有天她的腸道忽然打結
05:04
and we took her to the emergency room房間,
90
288322
2778
我們就把她送到急症室
05:07
and she was, she was in really bad shape形狀.
91
291100
3292
她的狀況很糟
05:10
We almost幾乎 lost丟失 her a couple一對 of times,
92
294392
2075
甚至在鬼門關前徘徊了好幾次
05:12
and I was there with my brother哥哥 every一切 day.
93
296467
3412
我每天都跟我兄弟在那裏一起守候
05:19
It helped幫助 me realize實現 something else其他 during this project項目,
94
303908
2776
這件事也讓我在這個計劃裡有了另一個體悟
05:22
is that recording記錄 that one second第二 on a really bad day
95
306684
6515
那就是要在過得很糟的一天錄下那一秒
05:29
is extremely非常 difficult.
96
313199
1233
原來是那麼地不容易
05:30
It's not -- we tend趨向 to take our cameras相機 out when we're doing awesome真棒 things.
97
314432
5197
因為那不像 -- 當我們在做些很酷的事情時
我們自然而然地會想拿起鏡頭
05:35
Or we're, "Oh, yeah, this party派對, let me take a picture圖片."
98
319629
2424
或是想說:「噢,對了
這派對很棒,來拍張照吧。」
05:37
But we rarely很少 do that when we're having a bad day,
99
322053
3002
當某天可能過得不太好
或是發生了什麼很糟的事情時
05:40
and something horrible可怕 is happening事件.
100
325055
1881
我們幾乎不會這樣做
05:42
And I found發現 that it's actually其實 been very, very important重要
101
326936
3420
但我發現
即使是在非常糟糕的時刻
05:46
to record記錄 even just that one second第二 of a really bad moment時刻.
102
330356
3544
也堅持錄下那一秒
其實非常重要
05:49
It really helps幫助 you appreciate欣賞 the good times.
103
333900
3701
它真能幫助你對美好的時光心存感激
05:53
It's not always a good day, so when you have a bad one,
104
337601
4287
人生變幻無常
當走到人生低谷的時候
05:57
I think it's important重要 to remember記得 it,
105
341888
1898
我認為把它記錄下來也很重要
05:59
just as much as it is important重要 to remember記得 the [good] days.
106
343786
5624
相當於記住美好日子一樣重要
06:13
Now one of the things that I do is I don't use any filters過濾器,
107
357480
2866
我的做法之一就是不用任何濾鏡
06:16
I don't use anything to -- I try to capture捕獲 the moment時刻
108
360346
3779
不添加任何東西去 --
我想儘量捕捉那個時刻
06:20
as much as possible可能 as the way that I saw it with my own擁有 eyes眼睛.
109
364125
5627
就好像是我用雙眼來看那般真實
06:25
I started開始 a rule規則 of first person perspective透視.
110
369752
2735
我運用第一人稱視覺法則
06:28
Early on, I think I had a couple一對 of videos視頻 where
111
372487
2073
一開始,我拍了大概兩部影片
06:30
you would see me in it, but I realized實現 that wasn't the way to go.
112
374560
4213
但當中有我入鏡
我發現不應該如此
06:34
The way to really remember記得 what I saw
113
378773
1847
要真正記住我看見的一切
06:36
was to record記錄 it as I actually其實 saw it.
114
380620
4866
就是要錄下我真正所見
06:48
Now a couple一對 of things that I have in my head about this project項目 are,
115
392537
4262
關於這個計劃我腦中有兩個想法
06:52
wouldn't不會 it be interesting有趣 if thousands數千 of people were doing this?
116
396799
5975
如果數以千計的人都這樣做
那不是很有趣嗎?
06:58
I turned轉身 31 last week, which哪一個 is there.
117
402774
6255
上星期我剛邁入 31 歲
就是你們所看到的這幀影片
07:04
I think it would be interesting有趣 to see
118
409029
1728
如果能看看每個人會在這樣的一個影片裡
07:06
what everyone大家 did with a project項目 like this.
119
410757
1848
做些什麼事情
應該會很有趣
07:08
I think everyone大家 would have a different不同 interpretation解釋 of it.
120
412605
1992
我想每個人對這樣的一個影片
應該都有不同的詮釋
07:10
I think everyone大家 would benefit效益 from just having that one second第二 to remember記得 every一切 day.
121
414597
4738
我想能夠透過一秒鐘去回想起過去的每一天
是對大家有幫助的
07:15
Personally親自, I'm tired of forgetting遺忘,
122
419335
2851
就我個人而言,我厭倦忘記
07:18
and this is a really easy簡單 thing to do.
123
422186
2571
而做這個影片真的很簡單
07:20
I mean, we all have HD-capableHD功能 cameras相機 in our pockets口袋 right now --
124
424757
2869
畢竟現在基本上人人手上有一台高畫質攝錄機 --
07:23
most people in this room房間, I bet賭注 --
125
427626
1830
我猜,在座的大部份人吧 --
07:25
and it's something that's --
126
429456
1590
而我實在 --
07:26
I never want to forget忘記 another另一個 day that I've ever lived生活,
127
431046
2258
不想再忘記任何我曾經活過的每一天
07:29
and this is my way of doing that,
128
433304
2281
而這是我的做法
07:31
and it'd它會 be really interesting有趣 also to see,
129
435585
2785
如果這能成真也會很有趣
07:34
if you could just type類型 in on a website網站,
130
438370
1970
只要在一個網站上輸入
07:36
"June六月 18, 2018,"
131
440340
3206
「2018年6月18日」
07:39
and you would just see a stream of people's人們 lives生活
132
443546
2351
你就能看到一連串不同人的生活
07:41
on that particular特定 day from all over the world世界.
133
445897
1694
來自世界各地的人
同一天的生活彼此相遇
07:43
And I don't know, I think this project項目 has a lot of possibilities可能性,
134
447591
3222
我不確定,但我想這個計劃能開創許多可能性
07:46
and I encourage鼓勵 you all to record記錄 just a small snippet片段 of your life every一切 day,
135
450813
3647
