The integration of multicultural architectural elements characterize Taiwanese residences built between 1940 to 1980. Lin had lived in this type of old-fashioned Taiwanese housing during her childhood. These residential elements have not only become a part of her childhood memories, but also gradually constructed her sense of belonging towards home and the land.

Therefore, dwellings have since become Lin’ s objects of interest. She noticed that the architectural styles of these Taiwanese buildings are collages and recombinations of multicultural symbols. Lin’ s mission is to discover the unique collaging aesthetic. By recomposing architectural elements into a suitcase, Lin interprets her sense of belonging and observation of the local housing, while contradictorily compensating her inner craving for nomadism.

1940-80年代的台灣住宅常常具有多元文化的建築元素。年幼時,住在這樣的台灣舊屋,而這些住宅的元素,成了童年的記憶,也無形地建構出對家,乃至土地的歸屬感。

因此,居所成了關注的對象:台灣的寓居有如多元文化符號的重組、拼貼體。經由創作,企圖從中尋找其中特有的拼貼美學。將住宅現成物重組成旅行箱,詮釋自身對家的歸屬感與在地居所觀察,卻也矛盾地補償了內在對於遊牧的渴望。
