你我都是陳冠希

媒體私刑絕對不等於言論自由。如果無法看清這兩者的差別,你我都有可能成為下一個陳冠希。

李禮君 撰文

香港藝人陳冠希私照外流風波似乎已漸平息。然而,被此案捲入的藝人遭到換角、廣告被撤之類事件仍時有所聞。況且,根據媒體的報導習慣來判斷,此案免不了日後又被端出來冷菜熱炒一番,再配上幾道「慾照一覽表」之類的可口小點,屆時又可獵得許多眼球。另外,最近送修電腦的人想必得先好好研究一下資料加密的技術…
當然,沒有人想成為下一個陳冠希。但事實上,正是我們共同創造了陳冠希,而後又合力摧毀了陳冠希。
私照外流的第一週,「你抓到幾張?」成了眾多網友的問候語。只要在網站或部落格擺上陳的名字,點擊率便迅速衝破百萬。就在陳宣布退出演藝圈之時,他的千張裸照已被製成光碟在紐約、深圳、加拿大等地華人社區熱賣,「製作成本低廉,在華埠卻可賣到二十元美金。」(註)媒體記者們更是充分發揮「回收再利用」的精神,將網上搜尋到的裸照大喇喇地放上版面,反正打了馬賽克,套上幾個「疑似」、「據傳」的開頭語,再擺上幾個吸引窺淫目光的聳動標題,不愁不成為報刊架上的搶手貨。
在這個輿論至上、訊息爆炸的時代裡,「多數」便是正義。只要人數夠多,隨時可以把任何人抓來遊街示眾。不需要審判,更不需要法律。
許多不同的文化都有「私刑」存在。例如中國古代,通姦女子的刑罰(如吊打、活埋、浸豬籠等)常由宗族執行,且多有「示眾」的規定。十九世紀末葉的美國,私刑常被用來對付黑人,直到上世紀六○年代才漸消失。私刑的存在,正是「多數暴力」的展現:在眾人的圍觀、默許甚至參與下,對「罪人」施以酷刑。
在二十一世紀的今日,私刑轉換了面貌,以一種更加隱晦、不見血且「不在場」的方式被執行。在道德的大旗下,黏上一層商業利益的標籤,以消費的方式堂皇進行。圍觀者不須聽見受刑者的哭號,也不必被迫向罪人投石,只要愉悅地消費這些八卦資訊,在眾家媒體的通力圍剿下,哪個罪人敢不乖乖俯首認罪?
當然,我們可以對陳冠希及眾女星的私生活嗤之以鼻,但這並不表示他們的人權理應遭受踐踏。如果他們傷風敗俗,那麼將這些照片四處轉貼的千萬網民該當何罪?如果陳辜負了大眾對「偶像」的期待,那麼,又是誰將陳塑造成一個偶像?不就是那些鎮日追逐偶像新聞的「粉絲」嗎?再看看那些對外籍配偶、外勞充滿歧視意味的新聞標題吧。被施以私刑的對象,也常與大眾對弱勢者的刻板印象有關。媒體很難負起教育大眾的職責,因為他們樂於做個媚俗的打手。
媒體私刑絕對不等於言論自由。如果無法看清這兩者的差別,你我都有可能成為下一個陳冠希──即使我們不是明星。

Time and Numbers

In the dusk of early summer days, the ’Light of the Sun’ spreads its magical power upon the busy city during rush-hour time. The whole urban life is bathed in sun rays. Regardless of the human activities, the busy traffic or the senseless height of the skyscrapers, the sun light is travelling from one corner of the city to another.
Light, you always travel hand in hand with the sounds of the city: sounds of cars speeding up, rustling sounds of the branches, busy paces of people commuting to work...With a touch of light, you empower every creature amd object on your way

Day after day, night after night, you come and go, again and again. Your routinely constant visit, however, is neglected. The public has ignored you; the city has forgotten you. But this will never stop you from your coming back again and again. Your warm presence, witnesses everything, caresses everything.
You follow the tick-tack-tick-tack of Time. It is this senseless, at a first sight, tick tack which connects places, signs, symbols and people. Light, you lead time, and you aroused the awakening of my Soul, and your power is reflected in the depth of my eyes.

時間與數字

你或許會在某個初夏傍晚看見:彩霞映照在雲絮上,使整座城市籠罩於一片魔幻。繁忙與喧囂的元素流動著,往返不息,幽暗中透露著些微線索,光的碎片灑落在生鏽的鐵杆、行道上的水漥,或是大廈整面玻璃上。光的影子太過可愛,沒有人願意將其碎片抖落衣肩,亦無車輛輾碎橫亙於斑馬線上的大塊光斑,整座城市就任由零星的光任意玩耍,從金黃的葉末上一躍而起,往下一個冒險啟程。

光的旅程,是跟隨聲音進行的。親暱微潮的南風潤過樹梢,碎片們婆娑起舞;車輛的低鳴靜止時,人群默默跟隨光的符號跨過長長的路。無意間,你在返家前順道晃過河濱,仔細分辨著每聲水流的差異,並比較其粼光的不同。縣市交界的橋下,光隨著沉沉的巨響延伸,最後消失於無形。

於是你一步步地將這座城市解構了,在光線與聲音所及的範圍,複雜的城市沉潛許多規律的流動,彼此穿梭呼應,不間斷地寫下各式旋律。

從昏暗中甦醒,再度回到車水馬龍之中,卻驚訝於人群已踏著同調的步伐、戴著同一種面具、重複各種行為。群體遺棄了你,城市遺棄了你,於是流浪成為最後的途徑。在景物依舊的異地,你重新觀看每棟建築、每種個體、每件物品、每條道路,像看著曾經熟稔卻略顯陌生的朋友,試圖找到你能夠辨識的蛛絲馬跡。

耳邊傳來一段簡單的音符。時間到了,它如此敘述著。你赫然發現,時間的規律,不具意義的清脆滴答聲,牽動著空間、牽動符號與人,以及每段旅程的開始與結束。從早到晚,整座城市隨著這聲響流動著。

因此你明白了,自己從人群中離去,是為了踏上這漫長的旅程。引領的光,混著靈魂,閃爍在深邃的眼瞳中。

童年音階

地點:FAO Schwarz, Fifth Avenue, New York 紐約,第五大道
時間:2008/2/1

小孩和音樂間一直存在著最古老的牽引。還記得我一踏入玩具店時就聽到這首不成調的曲子,到了二樓一探究竟,沒想到映入眼簾的竟然是這幅令我會心一笑的景象:小朋友開心的踏著屬於自己的步伐,在大琴鍵上漫步,不管奏出的音樂如何,他的心是定且無旁騖的,不抱著太多的想法,讓自己隨著音樂而律動。而身旁的大人也接收到了他傳達出的了快樂,踏起了合奏。就這樣,白人小孩與黑人店員的對比,如同鋼琴的黑白鍵的互動,奏出了令人心動的樂章。


地點: Santa Lucia, Venice, Italy 義大利, 威尼斯
時間: 2007/ 8/30

坐在威尼斯的火車總局前,等著火車的我,訝異的發現原來快樂如此簡單!
照片中的這位印度小女孩,原本被媽媽規定只能坐在台階上發呆,後來經過姐姐的鼓吹,便和廣場上的鴿子玩了起來,和鴿子用不同的節奏互動,笑聲撒滿了整個廣場,所有的小孩子都加入與鴿子玩的行列。看著小孩子如此容易被滿足,也讓我了解和動物的相處就是快樂的最快方法!


地點:Bath, England 英國,巴斯
時間:2007/8/25

漫步在巴斯,走累了的我選擇在教堂廣場稍作休息,眼睛卻貪婪的盯著每一位遊客,不想放過每個角落發生的小事。正在我向人潮處望去時,突然,我看到了這位迷路的小女孩,仍在熙攘的人群中,不疾不徐地走著,在淡淡的迷惘中流露出一股鎮定,明顯得像是個休止符, 似乎納悶著身邊的大人為何要如此快速的行走?是不是大家都迷路啦?讓我不禁莞爾。
正在我拍到照片後,他的爸爸出現了,嚇壞了的他和孩子的從容成了最佳的對比。其實,這段時間內,女孩可是好好的享受了一段屬於自己的寧靜呢!

Childhood Melody

FAO Schwarz, Fifth Avenue, New York
2008/2/1

A kid was discovering the joy of creating music. Amused by the scene, a man decided to join the little boy and dance along. The kid and the clerk interacted just like the white and black keys of the piano, and they played a touching piece of music together.

Santa Lucia, Venice, Italy
2007/ 8/30

In Venice, the Hindu girl was first asked by her mom to sit still on the stair. but then, encouraged by her elder sister, she got up to play with doves in the square. The laughter spread all around. Finally, all the kids joined her and played with the doves!

Bath, England 英國,巴斯
2007/8/25

The little girl lost her way in the city in Bath. But she walked unhurriedly in the crowd, like a sign of rest. She seemed to be wondering why everyone around her had to walk so quickly. As I just I took this picture, her father showed up. His hurried manner contrasted sharply with his daughter’s composure.

Harmony in Motion

Seagulls (Greece, July 2007)

A group of seagulls were gliding along our ferry in perfect synchronicity as we pulled into the port of Piraeus very early in the morning. They tracked our ship so that when I braced my camera against the ship’s railings and set the exposure long the gulls remained in focus while the relatively calm sea dissolved into a roiling background of white foam.
Thus I managed to capture a moment of stillness in a dynamic scene, because the seagulls and I were keeping time so well with one another. This is rhythm, I think. Something simultaneously moving and constant.


First dance from a wedding (Santorini, July 2007)

If you are ever invited to a wedding with Lebanese people, go. There will be dancing until three in the morning. However, the first dance of the evening occurred far from the raucous dancefloor. It lasted for approximately 15 seconds as one of the guests playfully grabbed the young ring-bearer’s hands and spun her around under the celebratory streamers all about them.
It was a small moment. A moment that probably would have been forgotten by all if there had not been this photograph to prove that this perfectly spontaneous little benedictory dance did happen.


The King of the Dancefloor (Santorini, July 2007)

He is actually a very quiet guy. You would not expect a guy like him to dance at all, unless his friend hectored him into it. Even then, you can imagine him shuffling from side to side, nervously casting his glance around the room and wondering when he can return to the safety of his seat.
Instead, as soon as he hit the dancefloor, he was released and transformed. He spun to the beat, shimmied his arms to the beat. He was lost in the beat. He was the beat.
He danced with himself. In fact, he danced as if the rest of the world did not exist. A circle gradually cleared around him on the dancefloor. Partially out of respect for the fevered energy he radiated, and partially for to avoid being whacked by a wayward limb.

翔舞瞬間

Seagulls (Greece, July 2007)
海鷗,攝於希臘

一群海鷗滑翔天際,以一種完美的同步姿態。那是清晨,我們的船正駛入比里亞斯港。牠們跟著我們的船,以致當我抱起相機撐在船杆上設定了慢速曝光,那些海鷗仍清晰對焦。那時,相對平靜的海洋溶入了白色泡沫的混濁背景中。
就這樣, 我努力在動態中捕捉這靜止的瞬間。海鷗和我都為彼此把時間抓得如此精準。這是節奏,我想。同時在移動著,而且持續不變⋯

First dance from a wedding (Santorini, July 2007)
婚禮中的初舞,攝於聖托里尼

如果你受邀與黎巴嫩人一起參加婚禮,去吧。他們會跳舞跳到凌晨三點。然而,那晚的第一支舞與嘈雜的舞池離得很遠,而且只有十五秒,就在一位賓客玩笑地抓起捧戒指的女孩的手之後⋯
那是個微小的時刻。如果沒有這張照片為證,這個微小的、全然自發的祝福之舞,很可能已被遺忘。

The King of the Dancefloor (Santorini, July 2007)
舞場上的王者,攝於聖托里尼

他是個安靜的傢伙。當時,你根本不會期待這樣的人跳舞。你可以想像他舞著拖步,緊張地環視室內,想著何時才能安全回座⋯
不過當他的身體觸擊地面,他被釋放,被改變了。他跟著節拍旋轉,跟著節拍擺動肢臂。他陷入節奏中。他就是節奏。那時,世界其他事物彷彿都不存在了。漸漸地,他的周圍讓出了一個圓圈──部分出自對他所散發熾熱能量的尊重,或許,也因為怕被他的手腳揮到⋯

看著·听著

我看著单纯的东西,
在我眼前出现消失。
我闭上眼,
听著心中的声音,
温柔地唱著每一天
生活中的美丽与哀伤。

Seeing / Listening

As I see the simple things
that appear and disappear in front of me,
I close my eyes,
and I listen to the inner voice
that softly sings the beauty
and sadness of every day’s life.
