Project 03

Back to Home

In this work, as an androgynous person, I decided to use myself as a medium to perform each family member in the images by wearing the same clothes left from them and by weaving the past and the present, from 1950s-2010s. It’s an exploration of an archetype of Asian family, like cultural studies in the historical courses, and display a certain sense of public ideology


Project 04

A Room of One's Own


斑駁的牆面還有漏水的痕漬是每日上下樓看見的風景。我帶著粉塵一片片掉落在樓梯上。安全網是一個三秒即可開的鐵門,以及一個生鏽的喇叭鎖。 過了半年,決定搬離那個令人不安的地方。在那之前,我想用身體去挑戰這個令人不舒適的環境,觸摸那些粉塵碎屑、感受水泥地的冰涼與潮濕。至終,那份抑鬱我不會帶走,因為我曾拿著顯微鏡好好看過他們了。

The building was located in Taipei, Taiwan which was my dormitory, an old and not well-maintained building that I left home for the first job in my life. I climbed six floors and lived in a rooftop addition. Every day I saw the dust and mottled wall, dark and potential dangers but always tried to ignore them. However, before the date I moved out, I decided to take the pictures of that building and using my body to feel every place I was afraid of before.
