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 childho od memories, but also gradually constructed her sense of belong ing 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. Affected by the impact of globalization and colonialism, the architecture of many Third W orld countries embody this peculiar and organic collaged style. Lin’ s mission is to discover Taiwan’s unique collaging aesthetic. By recomposing architectura l elements into a suitcase, Lin interprets her sense of belonging and observation of the local housing, while contradictorily compensating her inner craving for nomadism.
