新時代的溝通與介質

Communication Medium Now & Future

介質為物理學上可以傳遞能量或訊息的物質,在現代社會中人們已經習於將語言、影像、聲音隨著科技的演進,運用在各種生活形式中作為溝通、傳達的介質。千百種能用於不同形式溝通的介質,經由設計行為充斥在今日的生活中。不論是建築、產品、服裝、媒體、藝術領域;設計師為了文明生活裡各種形式上的美好扮演、運用介質傳遞著形而上的能量。

Mediums, the substances that communicate energies or messages in physics. People are getting used to have languages, images, sounds through technology as the medium to transfer the ideas and thoughts in modern society. Thousands and thousands of forms can be used as mediums to communicate, which is already overflow in our daily life. From architecture, products, apparels to new media, designers become the mediums of all kinds of outstanding forms in our civilization, even transferring metaphysical energy through the mediums.

不論是實質上的溝通,或是以設計透過介質溝通,今時今日,設計師透過溝通達成設計目的已經是基本責任,甚者將脈絡、策略、意圖等包覆在介質裡達成設計目的,從結果端更能觸發全面性的溝通。因此,以設計目的拓展溝通的可能性、達成深層理解、創造嶄新體驗,甚至維護社會責任;都已經是現代設計師在不斷變化的新時代裡,應重新探討而不可避免的課題。

No matter the basic communication or the mediums through design. Nowadays, to achieve the purpose of design through the communication is the fundamental responsibility for designers. Even more to incorporate the veining, strategies and thoughts in the mediums to accomplish the purpose of design. From the final consequence to awaken the comprehensive communications. Therefore to accomplish the deep understandings, to create new experiences, furthermore to maintain social responsibility through design. This is a subject that all of the designers need to be reconsidered and cannot be avoided in this changing new era.

電影導演大衛林區曾說:「當底片被汰換成數位拍攝時並沒有不一樣,莎士比亞也只用一支筆寫出經典,現在只是來到了一個人人都有筆的時代。」從底片到記憶卡、從鉛筆到 Apple Pencil,從家用電話到智慧型手機、從美術品到互動科技藝術、從人力到人工智能;在形式不完全能互相取代卻與日俱增的同時,介質與上述的溝通也在各種維度不斷地劇變著,新時代無聲無息悄悄地汰換了生活周遭的同時 ,是否也更應探討在科技與人文匯流的設計領域,設計師如何凝聚新舊時代的介質,如何掌握設計語言引發化學效應,創造承先啟後的溝通新價值?

David Lynch said, there is no difference when the digital replaced the films, William Shakespeare used only one pen to create classic. We exist in an era where everyone has a pen. From film to memory card, pencil to Apple Pencil, dial phone to digital phone, fine art to interactive technology, man to AI. The art forms cannot be replaced each other but explosively increased at the same time. Mediums and all the above-mentioned forms of communication are fiercely changing form one dimension to another. The new age is quietly coming to replace everything around your life. Isn’t it time to debate the design fields in technology and humanities convergence, how to merge the mediums from different areas, how to trigger the reaction to comprehend the language of design, how to create an inheriting new value by designers.
