Panoptic Paradise 

​全景樂園

2019-2021 (on going)

In 2019, I was hired by a theme park as a seasonal photographer, responsible for shooting animals and children. Panda was the first animal to film. 

Before going in, we all have to step on the footplate filled with disinfectant. 

Its bedroom is surrounded by stainless steel, filled with the smell of grass. It is the first time I watched a panda in close distance. After three seconds of excitement, my mood sank.

 

The room has only a stainless steel bed, and there are poops on the ground. There is light coming out from the bedroom, I guess there is a skylight. 

Visitors will use food to lure it to the stainless steel window and interact with it. Then, it will lie on the bed to look at the sky. 

2019年,我受聘於主題樂園成為特約攝影師,

負責拍攝動物與小朋友。第一次拍攝的是熊貓。

進去前,我們都必須踏過充滿消毒液的腳盤。

牠的臥室周遭都是不銹鋼設備,彌漫青草的氣味。

首次近距離觀看熊貓活動,興奮了三秒後,心情一沉。

牠的房間只有一張不銹鋼的床,地上各處有便溺物。

臥室內有自然光溢出,我猜想是有一個天井。

 

遊人會揮動食物引誘牠到不銹鋼柱邊,

和牠進行互動。接觸完,牠會躺在床上看著天空。
