在世界中心呼喚艾 In Search of Lost AI

April 6, 2011

MaD Team剛從廣州回來。艾未未不見了的當天,我們得知他透過偷錄的影片,在今年的TED作了十多分鐘的演說。晚上,我們在酒店房間談中國的現況,談了好久,然後,親眼看見當CNN報導艾未未的新聞時,螢幕的畫面突然消失了。

當TED策劃人Chris ANDERSON介紹艾未未時,他這樣說:
“TED是一個不偏不倚的組織。我們對中國政府,沒有正式支持或反對的立場。過去,我們表揚過很多在中國發生的精彩事情,例如人類歷史上最大型的脫貧。可是,我們很驕傲地向大家介紹,一位極具勇氣的藝術家的個人表述。”

“作為個人,我們可以做的事情是用互聯網、新科技,與年青人溝通,作更廣泛的討論……令必然的改變發生。”﹣﹣艾未未

The MaD Team just came back from a trip to Guangzhou. On the day when AI Weiwei disappeared, we learnt that a secretly recorded talk by him was shown at TED this year. After a long discussion on China’s current situation, we witnessed how the TV screen went blank when the news of AI’s detainment came up on CNN.

When Chris ANDERSON, curator of TED, introduced AI, he said:
“TED is a non-partisan organization. We have no formal stance for or against the Chinese government. We’ve had plenty of talks here in the past celebrating the astonishing things happening in China, including the largest escape from poverty of more people than any other time in human history. But we are proud to present the personal statement of a courageous artist.”

“What we can do as individuals is to use the internet and new technology to communicate with young people and to have much broader discussions… to make the change because it will come.” – AI Weiwei
