Abstract

本文針對香港極具本土文化特色的舊社區之一油麻地上海街為探究核心,藉此探討生活和活動在該場域內的當地人如何藉視覺影像去詮釋、建構屬於場域內人、事、物三者之間的生態依存關係,及它們在社會急劇轉型的大環境背後的深層意義。研究發現上海街視覺文化敘述、詮釋及意涵可分為形而上和形而下兩個不同但息息相關的層面來加以論述。當地人對視覺影像作詮釋時,不但結合物理和心理層面對社區文化作出重新詮釋,還指出了上海街的視覺文化隱含著某種統整形而上和形而下及異常含糊的美學特質,而這種特別的美學觀念卻形塑了大眾集體回憶。然而,在面對全球化、社會轉型、人口老化和大型資本百貨的入侵,使這美好回憶為創建未來新社區帶來變數和挑戰。
Yau Ma Tei's Shanghai Street community, an old community with rich Hong Kong cultural features, is the core center of this visual narrative case study. Probing into the lives and activities of the locals, the study analyses how the locals interpret and construct the biological interdependent relationship of people, events and things through visual images, and the deep-seated values they represented behind the abrupt transforming society. It discovers the Shanghai Street's visual cultural narrations, interpretations and meanings which can be classified into two bound up layers to expound: the metaphysical and the physical layers. To interpret the visual images, the locals not only integrated the physical and psychological layers to reinterpreted the community culture, but also pointed out that the Shanghai Street visual culture hidden certain integrated metaphysically and physically with extraordinary ambiguous aesthetics characteristics. In addition, these particular aesthetics concepts molded the public collective memories. Nevertheless, with globalization, social transformation, aging population, and large-scale capital merchandise invasion, exquisite reminiscences will bring variables and challenges to the establishment of new community in the future.
