國立臺灣美術館2015數位藝術創作案「陳依純:小黑在工廠的一輩子II」
是由台灣數位藝術家陳依純,以長期觀察台灣工業區勞動現象為靈感,
將工人及黑狗進行視覺拼貼所製作而成的新媒體作品。

當失去工作權力時,在工廠內外的工人們還能做些甚麼?他們如何維持尊嚴,在被資產主義巨獸的狡辯和蓄意謀殺下,他們可以轉而變形成一個靜謐,卻仍然有效工作的人肉機械幽靈,或是丟了飯碗卻仍偽裝為一個正常上下班的勞動者,即使他手中的勞動是一種無效的打發。這些變態機構的權謀交互下,有效的榨取和不斷的錘鍊他們直到血肉模糊。在予以他們虛假的未來藍圖裡,承諾兌現了他們甚麼?

備註:
臺灣的工業區有很多黑狗,也是一個經典的符號,為臺灣土狗的演化衍生種。小黑,是影射作品中的狗頭人稱呼,也是臺灣地方稱呼皮膚較黑的人的暱稱。而在工廠很多人必須在酷熱中工作,或太陽下工作,沒有防曬,所以也很多「黑仔」的親暱稱謂表達友善,在地下化的工業區中。

What do laborers who work in factories and out of doors do when they lose their right to employment? How do they maintain a degree of dignity in the shadow of a Capitalist behemoth spewing chicanery and premeditating murder? They can transform into a solemn but efficient flesh-bodied mechanical apparition, or an unemployed laborer who keeps up the masquerade of clocking in and clocking out of work, even when the laboring of his hands are an ineffectual waste of time. They are effectively extorted and endlessly thrashed until utterly mutilated by the co-conspiring power exchange of these perverse institutions. What promises have been kept in the blueprint of a spurious future they were given?

Note:
The black dog, commonplace in Taiwan’s industrial districts, has become a classic symbol, as a propagation and evolution of the Taiwanese mountain dog. “Little Black” refers to the dog-headed characters in the projection work, and is also a common nickname in rural Taiwan for those with darker skin. Many laborers work under conditions of extreme heat in the factories, or under the sun without any protection, and “Little Black” has become a term of endearment that conveys friendliness in the underground industrial districts.
