Thirteenber is a short monologue animation based on the poem “Thirteenber”
written by me.
Thirteenber can be a state of life. Here we experience a strange time. During this
time, we may not feel we are ourselves and we have no way of knowing where
we belong.
Part of Thirteenber is also my feedback on the concept of time and dimensions.
Shadow is the two-dimensional reality of the three-dimensional world, and
three-dimensional is the four-dimensional shadow. If by “time” we mean nothing
more than happening, then everything is time. There is only that which exists in
time. So, if I’m time as well, then I’m infinite.
Starting from the death of a dolphin in the beginning, in order to save it, the main
character opened a gate and entered a journey into a different world, traveled
through it, and started a series of self-talks as he tried to find a solution. In the
end, he looked at the experimental equipment that was broken because the gate
was closed after leaving. The dolphin has not been reborn. However, these are
the final answers. The story begins with the main character talking to the
audiences, and they just look at it. After entering the gate, they become the
adventurers with the main character. Each scene and character will eventually
become the audiences’ own experiences. The style of the animation will still be
weird and childish, but each piece of scattered monologue will become a
dialogue practice when the audiences get along with their emotions in a lonely
dead night.
The animation is about exploring the archetypes, liberation and the possibilities
of everything, finding myself in the loss, and creating the connection between the
world and myself. The appearance of Thirteenber was an arrangement I made for
my own internal renovations. I must encounter a lot of torture in every journey;
however when I look back, although some things have not been resolved, my
mentality can still be as close to detachment as the prisoner regains his freedom.
Each line seems irrelevant, but together they are connected. It’s like my own
scattered pieces were a complete circle before it was broken. After being
reassembled with glue, it is no longer the original shape, but it is always itself. At
the end of the animation, the main character will find out that everything in the
different world is also a patchwork of his own aspects. I am me and I am
countless me.
Thirteenber is my process of constructing myself after deconstruction, realizing
what I look like in the world and my relationship with everything in the world. I
am me. I am not me anymore, and then I am still me. It’s the same but different.
This animation can lead everyone through the journey of re-understanding
himself while feeling me through the work.

十三月是一部根據我寫的詩“十三月”所做的獨白動畫短片。
十三月可以是一個人生狀態,在這裡我們體驗一段奇怪的時間,我們可能在這段時間裡,我們不是自己,也無從知道自己屬於何處。
十三月一部分也是我對時間以及維度概念的一種反饋,影子是三維世界的二維現實,三維是四維的影子。如果時間只不過意味著發生的事情,那麼一切都是時間。只有時間存在於時間。又如果我也是時間,那我也是無限個我。

由一開始的一隻海豚死亡出發,為了救他,主角開啟了一扇大門,進入了一趟異世界的旅程,穿梭其中,因為試圖尋找解答而展開了一連串的自我對話。到最後看著離開後因大門關閉而碎裂的實驗器材,而海豚依舊沒有重生,這些卻也是最終的解答。故事從主角對觀者說話開始,觀眾只是看著,進入大門後觀者變成和主角一起踏上冒險的人。每一幕畫面與角色終將成為觀者自身的體驗,動畫風格依舊古怪童趣,但每一句零散的獨白將成為觀者夜深人靜時與自己情緒相處的對話練習。

在探討原型、解脫與一切的可能,在迷失中尋找自我,在自己與世界之間創造連結。十三月的出現是我為我自己內部整修做的一個整理。在一趟路途中必然遇到不少折磨,回過頭看,有些事情雖然沒有解決,自己的心態卻也能像囚鳥重拾自由那樣更接近超然。每一句台詞看似不相關,合在一起卻又句句相連。就像一塊塊自己的碎片在碎裂之前是個完整的圓,用膠水重新拼湊後已然不是原本的面貌,卻始終都是自己。在動畫最後,主角會發現,在異世界的一切也都是自己各方面的拼湊,我是一個我,我也是無數個我。

十三月是我對自己解構在建構的過程,體認自己在世上的模樣,以及與世界各物的關係。我是我,我不是我了,我還是我,同樣卻不同。這部動畫能在大家透過作品感受我的同時,也帶領大家走過重新了解自己的旅程。

I saw the stars on the first day of Thirteenber.

In Thirteenber, I am dead
I will die many times. death is not a one-time thing.
The new self has no different from the old self.

Thirteenber is the experience that transcends all the senses.
I have died many times.
I will be young in the future.

Someone told me that the sun is the projection of the love of all mankind.
If I reach the sun, can I get all the love?

I spent the entire Thirteenber in London.
Maybe the time is not in order.
The last month of Thirteenber is July
I ran to the universe filled with Schrödinger’s cat in Thirteenber.
I am while I am not.
I am right while I am wrong.
I am not sure so I split
into three people, or maybe I have been three people at the beginning.

I saw myself on the first day of Thirteenber.

我在十三月的第一天看見星星
在十三月,我死了
我會死很多次,
死亡並非一次性的

新的我與舊的我沒有不同。
十三月是超越感官的所有體驗

我已經死了很多次

未來的我會年輕。
有人和我說,太陽是全人類的愛的投射,
如果我到達太陽,我可以得到全部的愛嗎?
我在倫敦度過整個十三月

也許時間並不按順序

十三月的上個月是二月

我在十三月跑到充滿薛丁格的貓的宇宙

我是也不是

我對也不對

我不確定所以分裂
變成三個人,
或我本來就是三個人
我在十三月的第一天看見自己
