Award/X-Site:Booom room 爆炸容器 2021.7.13-8.22 (Taipei Fine Arts Museum )

Updated: Oct 31

2021年台北市立美術館 X-site 計畫 首獎


Program X-site is an annual event that solicits proposals for art projects to be exhibited in the Taipei Fine Arts Museum outdoor plaza. In 2021, the project Booom room by Overrun Guerrilla Act. x Arch For Real was chosen from a pool of thirty-one proposals.

Responding to this year's theme of X-Reality, the artists chose to consider the feeling of doom brought by post-industrial architecture and to use sound as a building material to create a synesthetic experience. The team created a tower shaped vessel that stores energy and simulates explosions with light waves, sound, and vibrations. The accumulation of these events and their physical energy create a dynamic game-like ambient zone. Audiences will be able to experience the structure through the different senses of touch, sight, and hearing.

General Concept

The general concept for this year's X-site project Booom room is based on the letter “X” of the program's title, which suggests a boundless, unknown variable. With Booom room, the collaborators have launched a thorough investigation of possibilities with regard to energy expansion and the traversal of space in a set of installations that radiate from the center of TFAM's outdoor plaza. Providing a visual focal point at the center of the various installations, a structure resembling a nuclear power plant cooling tower serves as a metaphor for our worry about and quest for energy. Furthermore, invisible, heterogeneous sound waves are generated that vibrate the space and expand the borders of perception.


「X-site計畫」以美術館戶外廣場為基地,每年公開徵選空間提案,2021年由「超限游擊X真實構築」以作品《爆炸容器》在31件提案中脫穎而出,獲得首獎。

反思後工業建築的末日感,作品回應「多重真實」之命題,以聲音作為建築材料,形成多重感官的聯覺界面。團隊創造一蓄積能量的塔式容器,於其中模擬各式爆炸的光波、噪音、聲響與共振,以及活動事件的堆聚,將物理性的能量轉化成具遊戲性動態關係的氛圍場,觀眾將可以觸覺、視覺和聽覺等多面向的感知來「觀看」建築。

總體概念

以英文字母的「X」(無限、未知)所代表之總體概念,深入探究能量的擴延性與穿越空間的多種可能。《爆炸容器》是一組自廣場中心向外佈建的裝置,中央以類似核電廠冷卻塔的建築體作為視覺焦點,隱喻人類對「能量」的追求與隱憂;其中異質且非視覺的波動,在震盪間促使了感知疆域的擴延。
