《山若有神》系列創作出發於個人長時間進行山中信仰的踏查,將在北臺灣山區做的土地信仰研究,轉化成為一系列藝術計劃的基底,從政治地理學、環境倫理的觀點去切入,並聚焦在山中的泛靈論思考,從區域性的神明土地公、山神出發,進而推演到萬物有靈的信仰觀,結合個人多次踏查於山中的經驗以及跟著不同群體上山的過程,從當代的角度去切入人與土地之間的關係,在面對山林的之時,人如何去思考靈魂與神,又如何將其具象化的過程,試圖將山作為一種思想的媒介,且將土地作為一個情感的指涉對象,以神靈與自然之觀點,將動植物、地理環境、氣候,乃至語言、行為等,都視為能夠感知以及經驗的主體,並回返至人類環境中的世界觀,並聚焦於人類世的討論與非人物的思考。

This piece revolves around the relationship between human beings and the land from a contemporary perspective, combining my own experiences and the process of following various groups into the mountains. While facing the mountains, how does one contemplate Soul and God, and how does one reify the process? This project attempts to use mountains as a medium of thought and the land as an emotional object of reference. From the perspective of the Gods and nature, considering plants, animals, geography, climate, even language and behavior as subjects that can be perceived and experienced. In the end, it returns to the human's environment worldview and concentrates on discussing the Anthropocene and non-personal reflections.
