《名字嗎?我有很多個(後台)》是藝術家吳思嶔於2018年5月在臺東大武鄉製作的現地創作《名字嗎?我有很多個》的延伸作品。在原創作中描述了原住民部落中流傳的一支滅絕人種:矮黑人族。藝術家在大武鄉大鳥溪旁設置了一組戶外裝置(此地為當地耆老口中矮黑人族曾經居住的地點),這組裝置配合AR擴增實境技術使用手機觀看,觀眾可透過行動裝置看見一個矮黑人的影像實體,而這個矮黑人的構成匯集了口傳、文史檔案及網路資料中所採集的所有資訊,並以第一人稱的方式來詮釋傳說、虛擬、物理真實之間的界線。
 
本次於關渡美術館展出的《名字嗎?我有很多個(後台)》考量作品離開原現場進入白盒子空間的轉換,重新拍攝了一部影像,以類似幕後花絮般呈現後台技術的工作狀態。這裡的「後台」所指涉的是矮黑人生成的背後方法。無論是原住民口傳中的矮黑人,或是在AR擴增實境軟體中的矮黑人,都必須藉由特定的技術條件及管道才能觸及。藝術家表示,這個管道即是「語言」,不管是與神靈溝通的咒語或是與電腦溝通的程式語言,都是隱藏在背後組成意識或形體的抽象工具,而我們也藉由這些工具通往信仰與虛擬所建構的實境。
 
My name? I have a lot of names (Backstage) is derivative work from the work My name? I have a lot of names created on-site at Dawu Township in May 2018 by artist Wu Sih-Chin. In the original work, it is said among the indigenous tribes there was “Ta’ay” (the Little Black People) that went extinct. The work was installed on the hill by the Daniao River in Dawu Township, where a set of outdoor installation is situated at the location the local elders claimed Ta’ay once stayed. The installation works with the cellphone to create an augmented reality. The audience will pick up one entity of Ta’ay on mobile devices. The existence of this Ta’ay is the aggregation of oral history, documents, and information online, who will interpret the borderlines between legends, virtuality, and physical reality on a first-person basis.
 
As for My name? I have a lot of names (Backstage) exhibited at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts this time is a display of the operation of the background technology behind the scenes. The “background” here refers to the methodology to generate the Ta’ay. Be it the Ta’ay told among the indigenous people or the Ta’ay in the AR, both require specific technical conditions and channel to access. The artist suggested that the channel is “language”. Whether it is the spells to communicate with deities or the programming language to talk with the computer, they are abstract tools hidden beneath to form the consciousness or entity, with which we tape into the reality constructed in faith or virtuality.
