"Art and plants alike, possesses the power of fire and the attribute of light to illuminate.
Nature has its traits, characteristics and pureness, just like how every single drop converges water to form a river, regardless of its origin and destination. Creativity has the nature of penetration and it is owned by everyone – you may call it instinct. I gathered a lot of individual tiny pureness to develop different forms, like the way wind shapes the forms of water."
Tapiei is a city of fast message exchanges, a speed of life where people feel nothing, an intense lifestyle manifested in camouflaging feelings or pretending not to have a sense of state ? With overwhelming information 24 hours a day, there is an easy sense of integration disorder within the city, but in the end, what is Taipei?
Regarding “Perception of Taipei …"?
In the fast-paced highly sensory integration disorder, Taipei City, I chose to create my “Perception of Taipei …" installment art, using materials directly related to the city: The overwhelming omnipresent information and it’s environment in urban areas compared to other prominent features, information and people. A direct impact is manifested on people’s quality of life from inside and outside. Therefore, the unique feature created from the city is information which had led me to select this material.
The material on the paper carries the information of my life and “MEME"space in 2013, every memos, work exchange, transaction documents, invoices, bills, and many other documents. In order to survive you must use the transaction file as part of the evidence of life, where the clue is traced as though from a chess board. These files are part of life in Taipei City but real work must be inside, and the continuation of the economy where there is negative pressure and the crystallization front is beautiful and each contain their own stores, yet in conflict with the meaning behind cutting out a piece of paper for the information channel waterfalls. The text and language are often unable to completely say everything so the material (work) has it’s own speech, perhaps more sense can be made than that of the invisible faces in abstract thinking.
The value of life lies in the invisible spirit which is active and mobile, meanig, the creator is an observer of life, every process is then converted back to see the transition and reproduces the past into the present, feeding consumption and showing spatial, temporal changes of life in the presence of various patterns.
