《3069號新地球》是由台灣的書寫公廠(張紋瑄)協同新加坡的插畫家何敏慧和新媒體藝術家何秀玲創作的線上圖像小說計畫。在這個跨國合作的計畫中,透過成長科幻小說,重新闡釋冷戰、太空探索、現代性和遷佔者國家等構成展覽的命題,​​並擴展了閱讀和體驗展覽的其他可能。

 

當代戰爭所帶來的科技突破,同時帶來希望與恐懼,而科幻小說作為文學類型,正象徵著處於兩造拉鋸的集體情感。《3069號新地球》承襲了科幻小說文類所體現的糾葛情感,將虛構敘事轉化為關於戰後台灣文化氛圍的歷史寓言。《3069號新地球》的故事場景發生在第三次虛擬世界大戰之後,此時已經不存在任何國家,只由「公司」管理全宇宙。「公司」以「鏡子計劃」解決人口過剩、資源短缺的問題,他們會派出三種小孩組成「三眼」——真正人類、何蒙庫魯茲(仿生人)、奇美拉(嵌合體)——前往沒有任何智慧生命存在的星球上,將舊地球覆寫到新地球上。在覆寫3069號新地球的任務中,三位主角遭遇到了「亂數」⋯⋯

 

線上圖像小說《3069號新地球》可以透過網路瀏覽器閱讀,此計畫不僅是能獨立存在的線上作品,與展覽中提及的的歷史糾葛相互呼應;在轉譯為少年科幻冒險小說之外,也提供年輕觀眾對此展的想像探索,並在與每件作品相遇時,都開展出全新的體驗。

New Earth No. 3069 is an online graphic novel created by Writing FACTory (Cheng Wen- Hsuan) from Taiwan, in collaboration with illustrator Joy Ho and new media artist Joanne Ho from Singapore.

 

As a literary genre, science fiction resembles a collective sentiment torn between hope and fear, inspired by technological warfare and the conquest of the unknown. New Earth No. 3069 inherits this emotional entanglement of the genre and renders the fictional narrative into a historical allegory concerning the postwar cultural milieu in Taiwan. A story about an expedition to establish a colony on New Earth No. 3069 after the Virtual Third World War, the graphic novel imagines a future when the nation state is nothing but a figment of history and the governance of the world’s remaining resources is wholly undertaken by a mega enterprise called The Company. The three protagonists - a human, a homunculus, and a chimera - chosen by The Company to form a squad named Trio Eye and set out on a space colonising mission called the “Mirroring Project”. Their mission is to find a planet without sentient life, and then reform it into "old Earth" through the Mirroring Project. Their goal is to make a New Earth in the likeness of Old Earth. However, they encounter a Random Number Incident on their way to "rewrite" No. 3069...

 

New Earth No.3069 is a web-based project that is accessible through any internet browser and is a stand-alone graphic novel that resonates with the historical entanglements addressed in the exhibition.
