DELAYED

Written in not-so-perfect English, a sign at the Bangkok Railway Station reads, “Travelling by Train is Comfort, Economical, Fast and Safe.” This nostalgic form of transport has long piqued the curiosity of Thai photographer, Watcharawit Phudork, who created his series, DELAYED, centered around the 19-hour train journey from Bangkok to his hometown of Hat Yai.


乘火车旅行,舒适、经济、快速、安全”—— 这是曼谷火车站的一个标语。这种传统交通方式,激起了泰国摄影师Watcharawit Phudork的好奇心,将镜头对准从曼谷到他的家乡合艾共19个小时的火车旅程,创作出摄影系列《DELAYED》(晚点)。

Phudork notes that whilst other forms of transportation excel both in speed and economically, there is a still a sizable demand for Thailand’s slowest form of domestic travel. With a mind full of questions and a camera in hand, he bought the cheapest ticket available and embarked on his near day-long journey home.


Phudork注意到,虽然其它交通方式在速度和价格上都比火车有优势,但作为泰国国内最慢的交通方式,火车依然有着很大的需求。带着一堆疑问和手中的相机,他买了一张最便宜的车票,踏上时长将近一整天的归家旅程。

The subjects of DELAYED are noticeably from an older generation; commuters who likely accepted their longer journeys as the norm. The half empty, run down carriages inspired Phudork to explore the other side of railway travel; the inevitable abandonment caused by dwindling demand. His second series, Out of Service, lead him to visit Hat Yai train garage, where worn out train compartments are sent for repair or abandonment.


DELAYED》镜头下的对象大都是上了年纪的人;他们早已习惯了如此漫长的旅途。残旧的车厢中有一半的座位都是空的,受此启发,Phudork又去探讨火车旅行的另一面——需求下降后,那些被扔弃的火车。在第二个摄影系列《Out of Service》(停止服务)中,他前往合艾火车车库,这里堆满了送来维修和废弃的火车车厢。

“Every compartment will be brought to a garage, even if they are in a completely bad condition,” he says. This includes the compartments that were near obliterated during a bombing by the South Thailand insurgency, the remains of which have been left behind alongside other trains to wither away with passing time. Today, Phudork works out of Bangkok and continues to tell stories of disappearing slices of Thai culture through his trusty lens.


“每节车厢最后都会被卖到某个车库去,即使是已经完全报废的车厢。”即使是那些在泰国南部叛乱时期被轰炸到的废车厢也不例外。随着时光推移,这些旧车厢逐渐消失。今天,Phudork生活在曼谷,依然用镜头讲述那些逐渐消逝的泰国文化的故事。

Scars & Death

Following the success of NANG‘s inaugural issue, “Screenwriting,” the Asian cinema-focused magazine takes a more abstract leap behind the scenes of filmmaking in their second publication “Scars and Death.” Korean film critic, publisher, and lecturer Yoo Un-Seong partnered with Filipino filmmaker, writer, and musician John Torres as this issue’s guest editors. Together with the NANG team, they explored the theme of “the death of cinema,” or rather, the changes in cinema, and the real life suffering involved with making a movie.


继第一期“编剧”《NANG》Issue 1 大获成功后,在第二期“伤痕与死亡”中,以更为抽象的方式,带领读者一探幕后电影制作的主题。韩国电影评论家、出版商和讲师Yoo Un-Seong携手菲律宾电影制片人、作家和音乐家John Torres,担任本期杂志的客座编辑。《NANG》杂志团队通过对“电影的死亡”的探索——或者更确切地说是电影的变化以及电影拍摄中各种现实困难的变化,来诠释本期主题。

The contributors for this issue include writers, filmmakers, scholars, bloggers, and artists who hail from the likes of Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, the USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Kazakhstan. The poignant brief is as follows: “Write about scars and death. Die for the piece and swear by it. For the scarred workers, the dedicated, the desperate enough, for those dying to be offered another chance. For the films we have lost, the scenes that are scarred by time, those missing frames, abrupt endings and low resolutions. For the ones who died on- and off-screen, for deaths we haven’t seen. For those who risk life savings for a fictional piece. For all others who toil away, INT/EXT, their bodies taking it, DAY/NIGHT.”


本期杂志的投稿作者包括作家、电影制片人、学者、博主和艺术家,他们分别来自日本、韩国、菲律宾、美国、印度尼西亚、新加坡、越南、印度和哈萨克斯坦。本期的主题简介直击人心:撰写关于伤痕和死亡的故事。献给那些为电影而献身的人,那些对电影怀以绝对信仰的人。献给那些伤痕累累的工作人员,那些全身心投入电影界,不顾一切的,渴望获得再一次机会的人。献给我们失去的电影,那些被时间褪色的画面,那些缺失的帧,突然的结局和低分辨率的影像。献给那些在银幕上和银幕背后逝去的人,献给那些我们未曾目睹的死亡。献给那些为拍摄虚构作品甘冒生命危险的人。献给所有辛劳工作的人,不论是在内景或外景拍摄;他们的身体一直在工作,无论白天或黑夜。

Like issue one, “Scars and Death” is also 120 pages. The new issue features stories from Gulnara Abikeyeva, Paul Agusta, Chris Fujiwara, Pujita Guha, Daniel Hui, Kim Jungkoo, Adrian D. Mendizabal, Miko Revereza, Shireen Seno and Kidlat Tahimik, as well as photography by Nguyen Trinh Thi, Sean Lee, Dennese Victoria and Jippy Pascua.

Roller Coaster India

 

无法观看?前往优酷

“During my trip to Kolkata, India, I could only think of one thing: roller coaster,” says Cuban filmmaker Yuribert Capetillo Hardy. As the name suggests, Hardy’s short film Roller Coaster India is nothing short of a vibrant, and at times, dizzying spectacle. The film’s point of view twists from scene to scene with almost zero delay, delivering a sensory overload that Hardy describes as a visualization of his feelings, fears, and emotions while traveling through India.


古巴电影制片人Yuribert Capetillo Hardy说:“在印度加尔各答旅游时, 我只能想到一个词——过山车。”顾名思义,他所拍摄的短片《Roller Coaster India》是一部充满活力,甚至可以说令人眩目的视觉影像。影片的各个场景快速地切换着,带来目不暇接的视觉体验,Hardy解释道,这正是对他在印度旅行时的感觉、恐惧和情感的“视觉化表达”。

The film is a choppy glimpse into everyday life on the streets of India, forcing viewers to cling to each scene. Hardy, who is now based in Holland, remarks that these moments are a stark contrast to his daily life but also make him reminiscent of his own childhood in Havana, Cuba. “Compared to my week in India, I realized that my life in the streets of Havana wasn’t that bad after all. The energy of this country, the spirituality of the people, and the spark in their eyes made this the trip of a lifetime.”


这部影片展示了印度街头日常生活的各种片段,迫使观众专注地观察每一个场景。Hardy现在在荷兰生活,他表示,影像中的生活和他平常的生活截然不同, 但使他想起了自己在古巴哈瓦那的童年。“我在印度度过的这一周, 让我意识到,曾经在哈瓦那街头的生活也没有很糟糕。这个国家的活力、人们的精神和他们眼中的火花, 使这场旅行成为了一次终生难忘的经历。”

Endangered Species

Manila-based creative director Patrick Cabral began his Delicate Papercuts series in 2016. His desire was to explore and develop new techniques in the age-old art of paper cutting. Working with layers of vellum board and watercolor paper, Cabral creates stunningly intricate artworks that range from stunning portraits to intricate typography.


2016年,马尼拉创意总监Patrick Cabral开始创作名为《Delicate Papercuts系列的精致剪纸。他的愿望是从古老的剪纸艺术中探索和研究出新的创作技艺。Cabral通过薄纸板和水彩纸的层叠,创造出肖像或艺术字体剪纸等令人惊艳的精致艺术品。

In 2017, Cabral launched a special series in collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature and Acts of Kindness, extending his original project to include some of the faces of the world’s most endangered animals. Many of the animals in his Endangered Species series are native to Asia, including tigers, pangolins, elephants, dholes, tamaraws, rhinoceroses, snow leopards, and pandas. Upon completing the series, Cabral happily remarked that the star of his final portrait, the panda, was no longer listed as an endangered species as of 2017. Scroll down and see the complete project below.


2017年,Cabral 携手世界自然基金会Acts of Kindness机构,为世界上最濒危的稀有动物创作了一系列头部剪纸作品。这个名为《Endangered Species》(濒危动物)系列中的许多动物都来自亚洲,包括老虎、穿山甲、大象、亚洲豺犬,塔摩洛水牛、犀牛、雪豹和熊猫。完成这个系列的创作之后,Cabral高兴地表示,他最后创作的大熊猫在 2017 年已经不再是濒危物种。下面一起来欣赏Cabral完整的动物剪纸系列吧。

The Snacks of Singapore

Singaporean cuisine is a culinary melting pot that consists of influences from a variety of Asian ethnicities, including Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Indian, Peranakan, Thai and Sri Lankan. Multiculturalism has permeated to the very core of Singaporean cuisine and a wide spectrum of dishes can be found throughout the country, from traditional hawker centers to trendy coffee shops. Singaporean illustrator Lee Xi Li cites Singaporean culture as his biggest inspiration, and the young illustrator has created a series of colorful cartoons that showcase many of the country’s favorite snacks.


新加坡是一个融汇了多个亚洲国家饮食文化的美食大熔炉,包括中国、马来、印度尼西亚、印度、峇峇娘惹(Peranakan)、泰国和斯里兰卡等。多元文化主义渗透到这个国家的美食文化中,从传统的美食摊档到咖啡馆,都能找到不同国家的菜肴。新加坡插画师李欣立以新加坡美食文化为灵感,创作了一系列色彩明快的插画作品,展现新加坡最常见的特色小吃。

Lee was inspired to draw after discovering the likes of Herge’s Adventures of Tin Tin, Fujiko Fujio’s Doraemon by, and Guy Delisle’s travel chronicles. His background in architecture also plays a part in his creative process; each illustration is created with a balance of playfulness and artistic precision.


比利时漫画家Herge 的《丁丁历险记》,藤子不二雄的《哆啦A梦》和 Guy Delisle的旅行故事都是当初启发他开始画插画的作品。他曾修读建筑学,这一点对于他的创作也有所影响。他的插图作品充分平衡了娱乐性和艺术性。

Kueh

Kueh can be likened to a type of bite-sized cake that features ingredients such as coconut, pandan leaf, and gula melaka, which are all native to Southeast Asia. “I was fascinated by the plethora of kueh from the various cuisines around Southeast Asia. (Drawing) each piece led to the discovery of kueh I never knew.”


《粿》

“粿”是一种精致的小糕点,一般用椰子、香兰叶和椰糖制成,这些都是东南亚的特色食材。 “东南亚地区有各种不同的’粿’,其品种之多令我着迷。(绘画)每一种‘粿’的过程中,我发现了很多原来不认识的品种。“

Lunar New Year

Traditional snacks play an important role in the Lunar New Year, they’re not only treats made available for visitors but also carefully chosen because of the good luck they represent.


《农历新年》

在农历新年中,传统小吃很重要,它们不仅能用来招待客人,而且寓意着各种好运。

Lo Hei Yusheng

Lee has also illustrated the traditional dish of yusheng, or otherwise known as the “prosperity toss,” which is a prevalent tradition within Southeast Asia. Each component of the salad is coupled with a fortuitous idiom and is usually enjoyed before each meal during the Lunar New Year period.


《捞起魚生》

李欣立还画了东南亚地区的传统“捞鱼生”。这道沙拉美食的每种原材都代表一句祝福语,通常在农历新年就餐前享用。

Mooncakes

While mooncakes may appear similar on the outside, each cake can differ based on regionality. There are a wide variety of textures, ingredients and cooking methods that are used to create these Mid-Autumn Festival treats.

Khanom

Proving that sweet treats in Thailand are more than mango sticky rice and red ruby, Lee drew a wide variety of other khanom, which is a Thai term for snacks and desserts. These delicacies include khanom baa bin, a Thai coconut cake; khanom tuay fu, a steamed muffin; khanom tien, a triangular stuffed dough with filling; and many more.


《月饼》

虽然大部分月饼看上去都差不多,但其实每个地区都有其各具特色的月饼。这种中秋节的特色美食可以有很多不同的口感,配料和制作方法。

《Khanom》

为了证明泰国的甜点不只有芒果糯米饭和“红宝石”,Lee 还创作了一幅 “Khanom” (Khanom即是泰语中甜品小吃的意思)这些美食包括以椰子为原料制成的糕点khanom baa bin、色彩斑斓的泰国蒸米糕khanom tuay fu、类似中国粽子的三角形甜品khanom tien以及更多让你食指大动的泰国小吃。

Dim Sum

Hong Kong-style dim sum is also widely available around Singapore. Lee decided to illustrate some dim sum trolley classics such as the har gao, or shrimp dumplings; char siew bao, otherwise known as barbecue pork buns; and siu maai, which are tiny steamed dumpling. There are also lesser known classics on the illustration, such as beef stomach, duck feet, and taro dumplings.


《点心》

在新加坡也有很多港式点心。李欣立除了画了一些酒楼的经典点心(比如虾饺、叉烧包、烧麦)之外,还画了一些不太热门的点心(比如牛肚、鸭掌、芋饺)。

Beyond illustrating local snacks, Lee also contributes to a variety of local projects that celebrate Singaporean culture.”Growing up in Singapore, I’m most aware of the ever-changing landscape. It was my love for illustration that led me to rediscover my country,” he says. His latest illustration is a movie poster for 667, an anthology of short films by five Singaporean directors who each undergo a journey into their cultural heritage and explain how Singapore became their home.


除了展示当地小吃外,Lee也为各种新加坡文化项目贡献了力量。他说:“在新加坡长大,我感受着这里日新月异的风景。也正是我对插画的热爱让我再一次重新认识这座城市。 ”他的最新插画作品是一部名为《回程667》的电影海报,这部短片是由五位新加坡导演拍摄,并且他们都经历了一次文化遗产之旅以及体会到新加坡如何发展成为他们现在的家。

Conversation

Sunkyung Kim and Wonjun Jeong are the creative duos behind the South Korea-based art collective Sailors Studio. Their newest photography series, Conversation, features delicately distorted portraits that are projected across a fleeting cloth, tossed into twilight landscapes. The duo began experimenting with this fluid portrayal of the human face in their earlier photo series, Floating Life, where the cloth acted as “a screen to absorb a variety of images which tell the story of life and death”.


Sunkyung KimWonjun Jeong 是韩国艺术工作室Sailors Studio的两名艺术家。他们的最新摄影系列《对话》(Conversation),将精美的人像投射于飘逸的布料上,映衬暮色的风景背景。在早期的摄影系列《浮动生活》(Floating Life)中,他们第一次尝试创作这种充满液态动感的人像作品,用布料“作为屏幕,展现一系列影像,讲述有关生命和死亡的故事”。

From the Floating Life series

Whilst their previous photo series explored the themes of life and death, Conversation focuses solely on the former and delves into the topic of self-discovery. The work was originally inspired by French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas’ conception of responsibility, which states that being human meant that one is responsible for someone other than oneself, known as “the Other.” The cloth that is tossed into the air depicts one’s relationship with the Other, with each moment captured symbolizing a conversation. Through these portraits, “one finds one’s essence through the Other.” See the complete series below.


尽管他们以前的摄影作品探讨了生与死的主题,而这一次在《对话》中,他们只关注前者,深入探讨自我发现的主题。深受法国哲学家伊曼纽尔·莱维纳斯(Emmanuel Levinas)的责任观的启发,其中指出,作为人类,对他人的责任是与对自己的责任所不同的,这一点可以被称为“对方”。通过捕捉交谈中的每一个瞬间的特征,所完成的肖像告诉我们,“我们可以通过对方发现自我的本质”。下面一起来欣赏一下这一系列的作品吧。

Black & White Tokyo

Veteran Japanese photographer Junichi Hakoyama is best known for his minimalist black-and-white stills that he captures on the streets of Tokyo. Armed with his Leica M Monochrom, Hakoyama creates alluring images with bold lines and high contrasts through his effective use of light and shadow. The result is a beautifully understated monochromatic series that he has simply titled Tokyo. Every shot carries a soothing balance of proportion and geometric structure, which transforms a simple subject in a common setting into a moment full of purpose. See more of his work below.

Made by Phantasma

Made by Phantasma is a subsidiary brand of Phantasma*Studio, a Jakarta-based label that catapulted into the fashion industry by releasing their inaugural collection in a single shade of cobalt blue. Founder Eric Liem shares that the sub-label was an experiment in creating fashion that would clothe the “unconventional teenager” and minimize on wastage. The somewhat unorthodox designs are based upon their love for “streetwear, anti-fashion youth movements, and trash culture.”


Made by Phantasma 是 Phantasma*Studio旗下的一个副线品牌。这个来自雅加达的时装品牌以单一的钴蓝色打造了首个时装系列,并由此在时尚界打响名头。品牌创始人Eric Liem表示,这个副线品牌是一次为非主流青少年设计时装的尝试,并以尽量减少浪费为理念。通过一系列颠覆式时装作品,诠释品牌“对街头文化、反时尚的青年浪潮和trash 文化的热爱”。

“Coming from a third-world country where wastage is the biggest environmental problem, we wanted to waste less by using leftover fabric and dead stock clothes,” says Liem. In addition to being environmentally savvy, he says that Made by Phantasma is also open to interpretation. “We hope to find a new perspective of style that hopefully our audience will help us to define”. Check out some of the apparel from Made by Phantasma below.


Liem说:“在第三世界国家,浪费是最突出的环境问题。我们希望通利用边角面料和滞销布料,减少浪费。”除了具有环保意识外,Made by Phantasma的作品意义也是开放式的, “我们想从新的视角来设计时装,让观众来决定每件作品的定义。“ 下面一起来欣赏一下Made by Phantasma风格独特的时装作品吧。

Designing Happiness

Since arriving in Tokyo, Duncan Shotton has set about bestowing happiness around the world, one little hand-painted push pin at a time. Five years ago, in 2012, Shotton set up his own design studio in Japan. Since then, many aspects of his adopted home have served as inspiration. From holding his first pop-up shop in a tree within Tokyo’s Harajuku district to rethinking the humble soy sauce dish, Shotton has the ability to turn the everyday into the extraordinary.


2012年来到东京之后,英国设计师Duncan Shotton一直通过自己对平常生活的小用品的创意设计(譬如手绘小图钉),在世界各地传播快乐的精神。五年前,Shotton在日本成立设计工作室,日本的许多方面启发了他的创意灵感。不论是他在东京原宿区一棵树上开设的第一家概念性快闪店(pop-up shop),或是他对酱油碟的重新演绎,Shotton一直着眼于将平凡的小用品变得不平凡。

Tobiishi

In Japan, it’s considered rude to wear shoes indoors. This custom is so deeply embedded into Japanese culture that many apartments come with a built-in sunken porch at the entrance. Shotton was inspired by stepping stones that he saw in Kyoto and designed Tobiishi as a clean space that serves as a stable treading spot for people greeting guests or accepting deliveries.


Tobiishi

在日本,在室内穿鞋都是不礼貌的。这种习俗在日本文化中影响很深,以至于许多公寓在入口处都会设有一个“ 凹陷式门廊”。Shotton以自己在京都看到的垫脚石 为灵感,设计出Tobiishi,为人们在门口迎接客人或签收包裹时提供一个干净、稳固的踩点。

Soy Shape

Noticing that the natural color of soy sauce takes on a gradient form when poured into a shallow dish, Shotton designed these delightful dipping sauce dishes to give off the illusion of 3D shapes, giving an extra “dimension” to every sushi eating experience.


Soy Shape

Shotton注意到,将酱油倒入较浅的碟子时,其颜色会出现自然渐变的效果,于是,他设计了有趣的酱油碟,营造出3D形状的幻觉,让你在每一次吃寿司时都能享受到额外“维度”的体验。

Sticky Page Markers

This stationary series allows every bibliophile to build adorable landscapes from their favorite pages. From the iconic junk boats of Hong Kong sailing around the harbor to the infamous Godzilla monster terrorizing downtown, these page markers are sure to be a favorite amongst bookworms.


Sticky Page Markers

这个文具系列让每个爱书之人在标签自己最喜欢的书页时,同时创造出可爱的风景。书签图案各式各样,包括香港标志性的传统垃圾船以及入侵东京的哥斯拉,这些书签贴纸肯定会深受书虫的喜爱

Shotton continues to work from Tokyo, collaborating with Japanese companies and sticking to a small production scale to maintain a high level of quality. His latest project, Planet Pins and the Moon – which is comprised of a hand-painted solar system and complete with a hand-casted concrete moon push pin – is now available for pre-order.


Shotton目前仍在东京生活,他与日本企业合作,坚持小规模的产量,以保证最佳质量。他最新的作品Planet Pins and the Moon是一组太阳系行星主题的手绘图钉,以及一颗用纯手作的混凝土月球图钉,现在已经开放预订。

Shanghai Love Notes

“When I first came to Shanghai, I didn’t like it very much,” says Gabby Gabriel, the founder of Shanghai Love Notes, who describes the photo series as a passion project. “The city seemed cold and there were a lot of things that I saw that didn’t sit right with me. Looking back now, I can say that Shanghai changed me. It taught me to look for goodness, kindness, and happiness amongst the mundane. Shanghai Love Notes reminds me of how I can find ‘love’ anywhere, just by looking a little closer.” Now, Gabriel finds great enjoyment in roaming the streets of Shanghai with a camera in hand, waiting for that moment of inspiration.


“刚开始来上海的时候,我并不太喜欢这座城市,感觉它就是一座很冷漠的城市,有很多让我难以接受和理解的事情。现在回过头来看,我可以说上海改变了我。 它教会我在平凡中发现好意、善良和幸福。‘Shanghai Love Notes’(上海爱情笔记)这个项目提醒着我,无论身在哪里,只要再走近一些,你总是能发现‘爱’的。“Shanghai Love Notes网站的创始人Gabby Gabriel认为,这是一个关于充满热情的项目。她喜欢漫游于上海的街道,拿着相机,等待捕捉灵感闪现的一刻。

Gabriel initially began making “love notes” from an app that simulated typewriter font. These creations eventually led her to couple typewritten poetry with images that she snapped while venturing throughout Shanghai. “Behind each ‘love note’ is a life moment that I feel compelled to share. Shanghai is my home now and I want nothing more than to tell its story.”


最初,Gabriel只是在一个模拟打字机字体的应用程序上创作“爱情笔记”,慢慢地, 她开始将自己创作的诗句与她在上海街头拍摄的影像结合起来。“在每一句‘爱情笔记’背后,都是生活中某个我想要分享的时刻。现在,我已经把上海当作是我的家,我只想讲述关于这座城市的故事。“
