The Backpack of Wings: Modern Mythology

翅膀的背包:现代神话

2021
Asia Premiere

The backpack of wings: Modern Mythology' represents a speculative future scenario by supposing the computational earth with animal sensory networks. In this scenario, the network is not only used for conservation and environmental monitoring, but also for commercial insurance infrastructure for natural disaster early warning systems. Would wild animal agents recover their activities as part of the terrestrial sensor or oracle that they had in the myths of the distant past? The film explores the intersection between the east asian seismic mythologies and the scientific approaches, and it bridges the initial concept about curiosities and beliefs towards nature. Through a perspective of each agent: ornithologists; blackbirds; an insured person; a rapping bird, the film draws possible changes in their interaction and biology. Thus, it alerts to a techno-fixational optimism, throws points of resonance for thinking about the implication of tracking technology and using animal movement.

影片通过建立地球和动物之间的传感网络,从而推测出未来的一种场景。在这种场景之下,该网络不仅可以用于环境保护及环境监测,还可以用于自然灾害预警系统的商业保险基础设施建设。作为地球传感器及神谕,野生动物在神话中才能进行的活动,会恢复吗?这部电影是东亚地震神话及科学方法之间的碰撞,透过鸟类学家、黑鸟以及被保险人的视角,展现了在其互动和生物学方面可能会发生的变化。这部影片告诫人们要保持技术乐观主义,同时还引发了人们对追踪技术及动物迁移影响的思考。(王丹宁)
