Dimensions variable

 

Mixed mediaDesigns of collective housing community in Taiwan after the 1990’s often times used architec-tural codes from elsewhere as decorative elements. Interestingly, these codes would sometimes forgot their definitions and transformed into its’ own unique forms.
Residential community could always reflect a variety of ideas and desire on belonging of the community dwellers. Thinking and feelings of the residential community were always projected onto forms. The utilisation of these codes were related to the idea of house as a consumer item. It reflects the consumer’s desire to be in elsewhere, and eventually become the Others.However, the misappropriated or re-created architectural codes that “look alike” elsewhere causes my confusion and displacement of identity. 
Mansion of the Beautiful presents the inner space produced from the reflection of oneself towards these housing landscapes. Using the forms of installation and 3D scanning, architectural codes transform into images under the gaze and influences of consumption as well as colonisation structure. It is as if a beautiful illusion, projecting aesthetics and desires of the public, but also create displacement of self identity.

Mataland 屬於那個雖近猶遠之地:就在我們的身邊,卻如同在遠方。她的造形樣貌源自於想望,想望那遙遠之處;然而其中的形象卻有許多錯誤的挪用和不考究,也有許多想像與投射卻也然象徵著永遠的無法臻至,以及始終的無法成為。

從此,空間不再只是置身的地方,這裡或那裡無關於身於何處。它是不可及的觀看瀏覽,與被凝視也是魂牽夢縈的慾望打造之所。
