[ 那副教我如何觀看的眼鏡 ] Olafur Elliason


丹麥當代藝術家/思想家 Olafur Elliason 在接受經濟學人1843雜誌專訪時,提及他最鍾愛的 MYKITA LESSRIM 系列 “Eito” 鏡框,以及眼鏡在他生活中所扮演的角色。


[ 那副教我如何觀看的眼鏡 ]


我有很多副眼鏡,但我特別鍾愛這副來自柏林的MYKITA鏡框。它的設計相當簡約而直接,但每個細節都值得探究,這支鏡框從構思、研發、到製造都是出自柏林十字山區一幢歷史悠久的工業建築。


從還是個孩子的時候我就離不開眼鏡,一開始發現我的眼睛可能需要被矯正的是我的足球教練,他猜對了,去眼科檢查後才知道我有非常嚴重的遠視,不過顯然視力倒不是唯一的問題,即便戴了眼鏡後我擁有清晰的視力,三個月後我仍然被踢出足球隊了。


戴著眼鏡讓我意識到人們觀看世界的方式有多麽的主觀。當你的生活必需依賴著眼鏡,你看待周遭環境的角度絕對與別人不同。也因為眼鏡早已成為我身邊不可或缺的物件,我對鏡頭與光學儀器也產生了相當程度的執迷。


[ The glasses that taught me to see ]

- by Studio Olafur Eliasson

Featured on The Economist 1843 magazine


I have several pairs of glasses but I particularly like this pair, made by MYKITA, a company in Berlin. The design is very straightforward and detail oriented, and I like that they manufacture and design all their glasses in-house in an old industrial building in Kreuzberg.


I’ve worn glasses since I was a child, when my football coach realized there was something wrong with my vision and suggested I get my eyes checked. He was right – I was extremely far-sighted – although my vision wasn’t the only problem, and I got kicked off the team after three months.


Wearing glasses made me aware of how subjective our perception of the world is. When you are dependent on spectacles, it becomes obvious to you that you see the world differently from others. I also think that it fed my fascination with lenses and other optical instruments.
