MFA2 - School of Art
I'm investigating my own emotional and intuitive interpretation of Taiwanese identity through a set of design projects. I connect a set of values that I experienced first through my family - intimacy, timeliness, vulnerability, indivisibility - to the island where I grew up. I want to use design to consciously forage for my cultural roots...forming what I will call the Taiwan Gospel project - a series of projects practices that examine factors of geography, ideology, social behavior, and historical context that influence a Taiwan’s specific place's visual development through in color palettes, patterns, and visual aesthetics. Using multimedia to investigate Taiwanese vernacular design, I will create immersive experiences to explore narratives from mundane family life to large cultural memories.
