For the 7th issue, the original idea came from the novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. In this novel, the story of six generations of Buendía Family, he'd drawn a picture of common people and their daily life out of an exotic village named Macondo, yet perceived by the readers as a surreal and magical tale with different living conditions and background. However, it’s still the reality people face in their real life, as artist Yunyu Ayo Shih was once told by a Colombian friend: “.....every family can tell you outrageous stories and they would all be true. There is nothing magical about it, don’t call it magical, it would be an insult. If you love us, remember that.” The novel becomes a mirror, it reflects the figure of Macondo inside Taiwan with those ridiculous yet familiar craziness in our everyday life. The same place where we born and live now - all those rituals, tales, family histories and the way human beings act - narratives and fictions are hardly be separated. At one point, history and real life would tangle with stories and fantasies, when we look at it in other angles or how we interpret it alternatively, we've forged a new-born story/history. In the issue of ANOTHER ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE, a new novel was built. It’s about the borders, the bloodline, the reality, the FAMILY, and the solitude. How to tell the past is true or not. How things could turn into new figures by being retold or going through a new process by the artists, Between one chapter to another, we’re leaving the space for the readers to enter.

本期以哥倫比亞作家加西亞馬奎茲的長篇小說《百年孤寂》作為出發點,在這本小說中,他刻畫出一個充滿異國風情的村莊「馬康多」,以及根源於此的邦狄亞家族跨越六個世代的故事。即使是四十年後的今天讀來,裡面的情節多半仍是充滿了超越現實的不思議以及魔幻感,然而,那只是當地的日常,如同藝術家施昀佑在哥倫比亞結識的朋友所道:「⋯⋯這些故事都是真的,不要說魔幻,說魔幻是種污辱,如果你愛我們,記得這件事。」像是鏡子,那些荒謬的既視感也倒映出台灣有如馬康多的那一面,同時卻也正是我們出生、生活之地——儀式、傳說、家族史與人情世故——有時候敘事與虛構實已難分難解,已發生的種種編織出當下的形狀,是歷史或者是夢。這期的瀑布藉由各個藝術家的創作堆砌出另外一本長篇,關於邊界、關於傳承、關於「家」、關於現實,也關於孤寂,由〈馬康多大飯店〉文中的對話開始,讓讀者自行決定這些章節該是夢還是真實。
