存在∕不存在 (英文名:Existence / Nonexistence) 「存在」,是中外哲學家多年來一直愛討論的課題,相對於人類或動、植物等有機物,「人造物件」的那種「本質先於存在」就絕對是簡單得多了。每件人造之物,皆是先有其構思概念繼而被製造出來,也可說是,其存在之前便已被賦予了存在的意義。只不過,每件物件是否都如其製造者所願地發揮出它本身的功能?在盡過其「職責」以後,它存在的意義又是否跟著完結? “Existence” has been a popular discussion topic among philosophers worldwide throughout history, while ‘Artifact’ has a much simpler definition as compare to human being or other living things, for its essence exists prior to existence. Every piece of artifact was created based on conceptual framework -- it was meant to exist before it even existed. However, does every piece of artifact function according to its creator’s intention? After it accomplished its mission, would the value of its existence be over altogether?

飯澤耕太郎(攝影評論人) 物件之叛亂當中的物件們脫離了它們的日常用途,並以一種難以捉摸的怪異形態被拍攝及呈現。它們自把自為地自我表現,有些時候甚至瀰漫着一股像要發動攻擊的暴力氛圍。 看著如此的物件叛亂,世界仍是無秩序的混沌狀態之時,不就是這個樣子的嗎?與此同時,身為日本人的我看到這些被拍攝的物件時,那股異國情調也深深的把我吸引著。當然,無可否認,在這裡呈現的是2010年代香港所發現的視點。Han TAM的照片所呈現的是一種本土而普遍的景象。 這一系列帶有少許幽默感的照片,今後將會有著怎樣的發展?我衷心地期待着。
