Song of the Wandering Country: River Drifting Inn, MEKONG KINGDOMS

"What I brought back from the country, I said that except for a few soil products, there are only some memories of the scenery. But the scenery has smell, sound, and skin feeling. There is special light and special blowing. The wind. The voice of the mouth is still left in the ear. I still remember the vibration of the heart." - "You said, what is there in the country?" Haruki Murakami is always stranger to the impression of Laos. It is a magnificent landscape, a dusty road, a splendid temple Buddha statue, a monk wearing an orange-red robes and a barefoot line to accept alms... Among them, perhaps with "You said, there is a country in the country." What is the longing for the text, and the sorrow of the history that has been occupied by many powers; and the fact that the Golden Triangle was toxic and addicted, and nowadays it has been plunged into a large number of Chinese capitals seems to have replaced this mysterious country. I sighed. However, along the mysterious river Mekong, rolling down the yellow river; this long stretch of the world's long river, the vast waters of the day, the night is reflected in the moonlight; the river passes through six countries, the diversity of customs and confluence Here. When I first saw the magnificent landform, I was deeply shocked and understood that this country should be close to the earth. "Mekong" has the meaning of "mother" in the Cambodian language of neighboring countries. The river flows through the country and is the largest basin in the six countries. Therefore, for them, the river not only gave birth to the vitality of the land, but they also tried to extend the fascinating water style in it. The "Gypsy" of the drifting hotel MEKONG KINGDOMS is based on this, using a thatched boat to let people feel the pause and progress of the river of time in the undulating waters of the river. Not a large hull, Gypsy has a length of 41 meters and a width of 4.8 meters. There are only two sleeping cabins; the simple appearance and hull structure are designed by architect Pascal Trahan. Inside, the hardwood is equipped with carved details, and the bamboo and rattan weaving baskets and furniture can be seen everywhere. The quiet and pleasant space is not only full of exotic atmosphere, but also surprisingly with a familiar Chinese style. The yellow-brown tone is so hot in the area that it is in harmony with the yellow turbidity of the river; the roof of the thatched woven grass covers the top of the ship, just like the original water hut, and lies on the river. When you look at the sight, you can see the green wild machine on the banks of the river. The corridors and decks are the warm light beams that fall with the sun and the grass, and there is a hint of privacy. The voyage to and from the Golden Triangle and Luang Prabang; when the water cruises, the fleet not only allows travelers to witness the vastness of the river, from folk dance, cooking classrooms to learning the language of the country, to travellers to understand the country more deeply . Along the stop, you can see a different landscape from the shore. Learn about local alcoholism at Ban Baw Villages, visit Khum Villages in the ethnic minority villages, visit the Peking Elephant Conservation Camp and ancient temples in Beibin...you can see some familiar Chinese symbols and are full of Zhongnan The exotic style of the peninsula - "What is there in the country?" This big question gradually began to have a little specific understanding. Even if the fleet is open all year round, the best time for this voyage is from May to September, when the local climate is warm and the rainy season, the lush jungle on the riverside brings more charming turmoil. The fare is expensive, but Gypsy's voyage is full of experience; as an elegant boat on the Mekong River, it slowly sails into the hard-to-reach mystery of this river.

Spreading the art and signal, talking about food exchange: Hualien Yiwen Salon Tea Bar, Shidong East

Photography/ TinLee. Come to the most prosperous business district in Hualien - Ditching Tail, this street is carrying many city scenery and stories; building a shop on the Gully, the more charming the windy night Venues, assorted food stalls, theaters, and pools are changing from time to time. These prosperous streetscapes are no longer the case. Standing on the quiet old street, I occasionally greeted the cat's probe and passed several emerging Wenqing cafes. From the free street to the Fujian Street, one of the houses, one unobtrusive, hidden, hidden There is a miniature art gallery and a tea bar. This is the new base of Hualien Art and Literature. The low-key building has a golden door in front of the door. The owner of the island, Liao Xiubo (Aguang), talks about the house, as if someone finally found the excitement of smallness and smiled and shared the reason. "This space is the old police dormitory in the past, and it exists like a monument. So I put a golden number on the door and made it like a government agency to create a kind of "micro-historic" taste." For the roots, use the space to tell the humanities story, and talk about the initiation of the island's East Translation Institute. "I was born in Panama, but I stayed in Hualien before the fourth grade. This neighborhood is very meaningful to me, except for the place where I grew up, and the place I think is the most Hualien! Three years ago, I moved with my family. Back to Hualien, I saw that everything in the past has changed. Those in the ditch have been demolished, the riverbed has been covered up... It can’t be connected with the memory, and the brain is blank.” After returning to Hualien, Aguang applied for art subsidy. I chose to make graffiti creations in this neighborhood. I painted a total of five walls in front and back. "I always think that the conditions of Hualien are very good. I feel that there are more and more expressionful and independent stores here. We started to start a business plan.” The concept of “collecting, eating, and brainstorming” is used to classify the space. The first is the island’s collection department. Many collections of collections and current art exhibitions are gathered here. Through the display of interpretation space, the elements of different cultures, such as Central and South American elements, Taiwanese folk art, Middle Ages objects, and Japanese artifacts, are attempted to merge "multipleness" into an independent style. Tracing back to the roots, in ancient times, people's collection behaviors were often satisfied with the physiological needs; while the generations changed, the human collection behavior gradually changed, and began to use the ability to collect, penetrate into every field of life, and cultivate a collection. Appreciate and create a unique aesthetic of life. Aguang also borrows scenery from nature and brings it into the trajectory of life. The living green plants and leaves are contrasted with vivid animals and insect specimens. The space is filled with tangible and intangible old and new conflicts, so that the senses experience is quietly formed. A common language. Island East Translation Institute - the east side of the island, a broad concept; the translation office, is a military unit, receiving Moss cryptographic messages, an abstract symbolic language. I hope that through this unit, I will transform the artistic and artistic information that I thought of as abstract and distance in the past into a context that is easy to understand and understand. Laughing that he is the director, Aguang interprets the name of the store. A new exhibition held regularly every month, talking about the cooperation with art creators, Aguang believes that "through the exhibitions of different artists, it is a very interesting way of operation to match the selections and works of art. Art galleries, people usually feel that there is a sense of distance. Although the empty space can emphasize the work itself, I want to emphasize the relationship between the work and the environment.” Let the works of art play the leading role, and then change the surrounding mix and arrangement. To create a perfectly coordinated visual image, so that visitors can pay attention to the paintings due to the ingenuity of the furnishings, or be attracted by the paintings, and then discover the surrounding objects. Complement each other, let art blend in with everyday life, and simulate the possibility of numerous home furnishings for the paintings on display, so that people can be more relaxed in the process of interpreting art and improving the aesthetics of life. "Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde" by Diego Lazzarin "AZAZEL" by Diego Lazzarin "In this small space, the future will continue to be carried out and stacked through various types of art activities." Ah Guang, not only serves as a curatorial event, but also acts as an artist brand. Diego Lazzarin, a fantasy artist from Italy, can see his book Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde and the figurine; Diego Lazzarin presents the spiritual garden and mysterious species in his heart through painting and engraving. For example, the self-presenting corner of the showcase is a strange yellow creature - AZAZEL, 20 cm tall, likes to live on the river, the main occupation is to prey on the water creatures, have a beautiful voice, and love to sing their favorite songs loudly. Turning on Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde, the observations of the Earth by the aliens of Diego Lazzarin are narrative backgrounds, interpreting human behavior through the perspective of aliens, and gaining a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of the earth and human beings. The 160-page full of destructive disorganized content, full of fantasy narrative techniques and strong color style, is a classic reading that is worthy of the universe's exploration and love of hunting style, collection and recollection.

This is the self-introduction of illustrator Yu-Hsuan Wang on the Internet. In the days of more than two thousand days, she became attached to Paris and co-existed with creation. It is said that he has left Taiwan to study in Paris, and he is attracted by a certain state - an "unknown feeling" that does not know what will happen. The attachment to fall in love with "unknownness" is also reflected in her creation. Curious under the laws of nature, and magnifying the differences seen in the eyes, in the corners of the real world, quietly construct the creatures and beasts of illusions, to paint their scent, color, ecology, and even culture.绘Drawing the world that is common but not seen in the day as a kind of vision—the brush moves so far in the real thing, subtly reconciling elegance and eccentricity, which is the impression that his work gives. "Amusement - the tree of the rainforest" <Amusement - the tree of the rainforest> In France, I worked as a freelance designer to work on graphic design and illustration; I originally wanted to be a graphic designer, but I used it several times. After expressing the work as an illustration, he has a great interest in illustration. "In many cases, planes and illustrations can be combined to produce new sparks." So, during the day, designing and painting at night, she found a balance between the two in the process of continuous creation.

She has not traveled abroad for more than seven years, and she has not given a sense of distance because she has stayed abroad for many years. It is like the experience of internalization. This time she returned to Taiwan, she put together the illustrations in recent years, and wanted to share the strange scenery in her heart to Hualien, the hometown of her own significance.

The boat cuts through the water mirror, flowing time and light: Tien Giang House, Vietnam

If you call the city's busyness a bustling city, then can you imagine that it is just a kind of excitement? People coexist with all things, with shadows to testify during the day, rushing through the trajectories of light and shadow, drawing the appearance of desperate life, desperately looking for the export. Where can you find a harbor that is not affected by the tides of the sun and the moon, away from the earth, and look at the calm and healing water surface - you are always so flustered, are you thinking about this? Built in the former province of Vietnam, built by the construction team atelier tho.A, a private house with a hidden greenery, the Tien Giang House, with a boat in front of the water mirror, a daylight shuttle, a slow flow of time, architecture Provide the best place to rest like a big tree; hide in the shade with peace of mind! Suspend the pursuit of the world, only to get along with yourself. Tien Giang House, from a pair of young couples who are tired of the world, are eager to have a true physical and mental affiliation during the weekend break. In particular, it was purchased in Qianjiang Province, and the “perfect situation” of the two ideals was built with a tight budget. The building materials were taken from the local old houses and handed over to the local craftsmen for implementation. After a long period of preparation and construction, they were successfully completed in 2015. The overall design of the traditional Vietnamese architecture, improved by the structure of the high-rise house, the use of local brick-laying bases, and the connection of the cool-colored cement floor inside the house; from the beginning of the stairs, the mottled orange-red masonry tiles, criss-cross The characteristic square texture is arranged in its own rules, and the blocks are paved to the front of the small pool. Guide you to the surface of the water, slide the paddles and gently pluck the green leaves to create a pleasant river trail. The minimalist pattern inside the house is divided into several areas by using only a few walls, without the bare space of the outer wall, completely subverting the concept that the house needs windows. The roof is designed with traditional Vietnamese architecture, with a unique structure and small window wells that extend into the sky, giving the overall space a good cooling and ventilation. Like a candlelight hanging lighting, the warm light is dropped on the furniture, the light penetrates the window cut from the wall, and the shape window frame adds a little humanity. In particular, the dark blue elegant iron frame forms a large hollow iron bar. In the space that seems to simplify all the shapes, Tien Giang House still has many details. The space has both a modern and a Zen atmosphere, so it is replaced by an open and wide, and the surrounding green environment is generously accommodated. Here, the emotions between people can naturally be revealed and they can get along with each other. You can hear each other in front of you. Good morning, plain, good nightly like a moonlight. Day and night, I feel simple and happy because of practicality. The existence of Tien Giang House is quietly healing the hearts of the people. The rhythm of the ideal day is not to be ill, follow the time and slowly roll forward. After a short escape from the hustle and bustle, you don't have to build a wall to isolate yourself and resist the outside world. Conversely, with the simplest ideas, let the senses go to the details, the interaction of people, the trajectory of light, the direction of the wind, and the ripples of water. In the end, earthly distractions can be just a language that can be easily ignored. All Images via atelier tho.A.

The bitterness and vitality of blossoming on the island: Interview with contemporary artist Liu Yilan

Photography/ Manchi. Painting / Liu Yilan, Xinyuan Art. "Because I can't find food that suits my taste. If I find such food, please believe that I will not be so alarmed and eat like you and everyone." - "Hunger Artist" ( Ein Hungerkünstler), 1922, Franz Kafka Taiwanese contemporary artist Liu Yilan, who is known as the "legendary" in the art world, is self-taught in painting and is amazed at the domestic and international art scenes. The atmosphere is strong and beautiful, but classical but not traditional. The people in the painting are faint. The mourning look, seemingly desperate, substantial perseverance - this unique Liu style aesthetics, already self-contained style, can be recognized at a glance. This year, Liu Yilan was invited to write the main vision for the film "Blood Goddess of Mercy", inheriting the spirit of the film, depicting the character charm in the play, clenching the future without love, and laughing and laughing is the distraction of the heart. On the flamboyant round canvas, Liu Yilan reveals love and hate with a brush, so the endless emotional reincarnation, but also the life. The cultivation field named Life, which found salvation in art and literature, introduced the first brush in 1998. The non-class class did not have any artistic background, but devoted himself to painting. Liu Yilan began to touch the shape of the painting. With a strong personal style, her core of creation has never changed - reflecting the society's view of women, chewing, internalizing, and then confiding. As a woman, as a creator, she recorded the observed social status, and then used the pictures to confide in the most sincere and self-proclaimed creations. "Starting by watching myself, exploring and excavating, in the process of touching the guilt, I will throw a question to the world from the "female perspective" I have seen. The society expects that the role played by the woman and the self The trade-offs and balances are all things I am thinking about. My problems may be the problems of many women; and my creative point of view--as a woman's point of view, I think that is a very different view from men." , Butterflies Love Flowers-8, painting, 60 cm in diameter, 2017. Liu Yilan, Butterflies Love Flowers-8, painting, 60 cm in diameter, 2017. Liu Yilan, Butterflies Love Flowers-8, painting, 60 cm in diameter, 2017. The core of such creation, which cannot be cut with her growth, must be discussed from the "family." When my mother left home at a young age and her father died in the process of growth, Liu Yilan’s experience was always a bit more bitter. Then she got married and became a family. She first tasted the ordinary happiness of a happy family. She was full of doubts about life. "I don't want to live like this. It's just work and family. Although the gentleman is very good, the child is well-behaved, and the food is full, life is like this." It doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense to look back now. Maybe it's from my father's early death, which has a great influence on my personality. That makes me feel that life is very empty. It seems that for a moment, it is gone." In the old days, as The life of traditional oriental women, the bitterness of those who are difficult to resolve, she can only use painting to read the hair; observe self from it, explore the essence of life; feel the impermanence of life and death, and even the rest of life is ordinary. Realizing that she is standing at the end of her struggle with destiny, art and literature have become her only spiritual sustenance to break away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Art and literature open another window of life for me. "When I first read Kafka's "Hunger Artist" in a certain year, I cried. I was in a state of mind more than a decade ago. I can't find someone like me in that environment, keep asking. Own, "Why can you make a sunrise and a sunset, you can settle down physically and mentally, and I can't do it?" She recalled. "I am so reluctant, I feel that I don't want it, I feel that I must be in art. In order to be able to complete the self, others can live in such a calm manner. So when I read this work, I felt that the doubts and confusions of decades have been understood: "If the value of the universal universal recognition is also the value of my identity. Please believe me, I will not be embarrassed, I will eat too much." I am not referring to other people being bad or very easy, but the way everyone settles in mind and body; and I was in the world at that time. I can't find the food I want, so I can only insist on my own art and creation. I think this is the influence and power of literature - even if it is difficult to digest at first." "Those dying creators are now They can still read their thoughts - the body is dead, the spirit is passed down. So beyond the time and beyond the space, such "eternal" makes me deeply believe that only art and humanity can be immortal." as a contemporary The artistic creator, Liu Yilan believes that paintings can not only express emotions and aesthetics, but must also carry an idea, just like the power of literature and reading. "When a piece of work is endowed with thought, this thought is bound to be your current feeling. For me, this is the "contemporary spirit"; if the work does not have any thoughts, then there is no thinking in this era."

Miniature island market in one cube: Interview with pocket artist Lin Jingyi

The big Taipei, where the nightingale is drooping, is a city that is unwilling to be lonely and unwilling to leave. Let the lights flash and shimmer, and break through the tranquility brought by the night, gather the crowd with delicious food, and eat the light together, in our favorite Shilin night market. With the recent changes in the market, how can the old scenes in this place continue to remain in our hearts? Lin Jingyi, a pocket artist who is good at interpreting Taiwan's feelings on the ground, is crafted with skillful techniques and has completed a large-scale classic work, Shilin Night Market. Yangming Theatre, Hao Da Chicken Steak and many other popular stores compare the real situation, shrinking the Shilin Night Market to a cubic space of 116 cm in a 1/16 ratio; exploring the familiarity through a new vision of micro creation Lead everyone to the charm of pocket art. Neon night, gathered in 13 booths, staged a wonderful performance in front of the old theater: skewers of grilled meat, slow-cooked soup, fried sizzling, fresh fruit... in mouth-watering The Shilin night market is full of tourists. Directly staring at the details of the booth, while immersing in the situation, listen to the teacher Yi Road to the beginning of the creation of Shilin Night Market. The Hong Kong exhibition party warmly invited to promote the cooperation between Hong Kong and Taiwan pocket art. The question "What is your impression of Taiwan?" asked Jing Yi to get creative inspiration and unprecedented challenges. Then I learned that the impression of foreigners on Taiwan is the construction and culture of the night market, the sky lanterns, and the old streets, which are more time-washed and more emotional. If so, then do this! Looking around, Shilin Night Market is so big, where should I start? Mr. Jing Yi said frankly, "At that time, it was the first time for the implementation of large-scale creation and exhibition abroad. All aspects were tests. In design and planning, it took a lot of time to think, until it was clear, it began to really start. The early skeleton setting, because the terrain of the night market is not neat, leaning toward the ladder type, in order to find a suitable angle, and hurt the brain." Building structure, booth details, proportions, the light production pre-production period costs a lot Month; Visiting Shilin Night Market every week has become a fixed itinerary. Jing Yi teacher has recently visited and photographed photos for the database, accumulating the details captured in her eyes on the desktop, and these are the key to the vividness of the work. Many of the details in the work come from the real Shilin Night Market. In contrast to the picture, in the spirit of immersiveness, a solid marathon is used to create a marathon. Stabilize the skeleton, and use the hand-made carpentry to complete the visible three-dimensional structure of the building wall, floor, signboard, etc.; the metal texture of the booth is made of aluminum strips and aluminum skin, and then the clay plastic material is used for coloring. Engraving and other details, and finally decorated with lighting. It seems that it took a whole month and a half to complete. In fact, when all the booths are assembled with the ingredients, they are arranged in front and behind, and they are close together to create a sense of living space. What Jing Yi’s teacher thinks is not the familiar Shilin. "Night Market" ⋯⋯ "I always felt that something was missing after I finished it. I finally found out that the objects are too new, so I will diversify again and again, and some light bulbs will be lighted down to create a situation." The teacher reviewed. At this time, she pointed to the Yangming Theatre, covered with the wall of the movie poster and the canopy of the doorway, sharing the distressed details with us. "When distressing, I will look at the photographed photos and think about how the stains are formed? The shelter at the entrance of the theater, I stood there for a long time, to observe the changes in the rain wash and the cause and effect, these are also history." The different shades of color, not casually distressed, but carefully explored before writing , which can not help but marvel at the degree of exquisiteness, showing her insistence on the details. Pocket works are produced in a 1/12 ratio, while Shilin Night Market is executed at a 1/16 ratio. As the difficulty increases, the objects are relatively more compact. If you choose any of the ingredients on the booth, the comparison is smaller than the nail surface, even if it is too small to pick them up with your fingers. The light exhibition will take 3.5 hours! Among the chickens at the "Auntie Salt Chicken" booth, it took 2.5 hours for Jing Yi to make the first chicken, and the subsequent chickens were made with a mold; "but all the ingredients except the chickens." They are all hand-kneaded and finished," she said with satisfaction and confidence. As we looked at the appearance of the ingredients, we found that the objects were not only tangible, but even the texture, fiber and color were presented. Also because of the unique charm of Shilin Night Market, it was invited to Beijing for renewal after the Hong Kong show. Teacher Jing Yi mentioned that the original booth was only 12 stalls, and the 13th booth was added because of a story. "My friend told me that her and her husband’s memories of Shilin’s night market during their student days were to buy a certain “boiled fried bag”. After I heard it, I felt so beautiful. I finished the 13th booth in Beijing. I told my friend, "While I don't know which one you are going to, I don't care, I listened to it, so I did it!"" I moved my life into the creation. Gradually, the lifeless objects will start to have human touch. . After traveling internationally, "Shilin Night Market" returned to Taiwan to retain the old time in each other's hearts in a pocket-sized way; when the signboard built-in lighting, the faint and warm feeling of the faint, is the most familiar Taipei night, full of memories and memories. Missing temperature. Jing Yi, a teacher who has been in contact with pocket art for decades, talks about himself and his pocket. It turned out to be the fate of love at first sight. Occasionally through the pocket art store, but foresee the possibility of future pockets, after all night thinking and determined to use this as a career, from the beginning to learn from the arts, take the path of their choice. "I was asked if I wanted to use this as my lifelong career. I said that everyone looks at the pockets as small as zero, but I think it is one hundred. This is a place where I have different views from everyone. On this road, I don’t look at the present. I can only do what I want, but I want to think about the charm of "Pocket" without restrictions; because I can't see the end, I don't know how far I can go, so I set it up as a career." Many times I am only moved. Creation, but the feedback from the work is beyond imagination. "For decades, I have shuttled through these small things, and I have a lot of experience in tempering and experimenting. I know that I have no patience and I have re-acquainted myself. Especially the principle of "eat fast and break the bowl", so now I am creating Focus on stability and stability, never lie to yourself, and do not take shortcuts! Because once the violation, it is easy to fall and have to start again. Therefore, you must do your own work, quietly do your own thing, in front of others There is nothing to blame, and there is no shortage of it." Jing Yi teacher's expression between the expression, showing firm. The expectation of the pocket is not only unilateral creation, but also more eager to interact with people. Jing Yi teacher then organizes the "network exhibition" in the pocket world; once a year, it has entered the sixth year. In the form of a stick, the audience is introduced to each creator platform to promote pocket art and allow the public to interact directly with the creator. The work "Deep Night Cafeteria" is designed to satisfy the hackers, with a scent and a brewing situation, and to perfectly interpret the spirit of the movie "Deep Night Canteen".

The work "Deep Night Cafeteria" is designed to satisfy the hackers, with a scent and a brewing situation, and to perfectly interpret the spirit of the movie "Deep Night Canteen". After becoming a full-time pocket artist, the creative planning is the first priority. "The current creation is divided into two blocks. The traditional theme will not be let go, because that is my life, my memory, and the future will be a heritage. Just like writing Diary, at the moment I am using the pocket to complete this diary; of course, I also have dreams. Like many places I want to go but I can't go, I rely on the dream of pockets." Jingyi teacher who asks himself to constantly push new works every year, such as the recent The works of the late-night canteen, "憩", "Good Morning" and so on reveal the seriousness and self-discipline accumulated by the age; she loves what she is doing and is convinced of it. The "Deep Night Cafeteria" is designed to satisfy the hackers, with a scent and a brewing situation, and to perfectly interpret the spirit of the movie "Deep Night Canteen". Jing Yi, who believes that he no longer meets a single medium, recently launched the industrial style creation “憩”, which can interpret temperature as a metal medium. The work "憩".

From the microscopic field of view to the world corner, the pocket craftsmanship magnifies everything that is seen everyday, and the new things that have not been discovered are brewed in this land, telling the warm memories of the city's wells. ...

With the covenant of the sea, read the rubber commentary of the sea commentator: "From West to East - Ocean Stamps"

Standing on the land and looking at the sea, see the straight sea ridge line in the distance, when the line meets the line, the endless abyss under the water, and the possession of many huge creatures, is a world that humans have never really touched. In the eastern part of Taiwan, with the warmth of the Kuroshio currents, it brings abundant fishery resources, and it also welcomes the joy of whales and dolphins. And the same goes with the sea, because of the sea, not only them, but also her - Le Yi. A girl from Hong Kong who lives in Hualien and who weaves the ocean into her own life. She used to be a trainer at the Hong Kong Ocean Park and trained as a marine commentator for the Taiwan Kuroshio Marine Culture and Education Foundation. Waiting for the sea to jump out of the water, to witness the romantic cetacean covenant, she picked up the interest of the past, used the seal to draw the sea and see the whales and dolphins, share the story of her and the sea by seal, all the collections - " F West T East from west to east - Ocean Stamps. The first step in Taiwan is to leave the next stop of the dream work of Hong Kong Ocean Park. After leaving the job for five years, in the first year of studying in western Taiwan, I went to the bookstore to read the books of whales and dolphins in the bookstore, and then I became aware of the Kuroshio Ocean Culture and Education Foundation and fell in love with the Eastern Sea. Since then, I have had a deep connection with Hualien. In this way, Leyi transferred from the west to the east, and with the change of life and the cultural experience of foreign countries, she turned her feelings into words "F West T East from west to east", which was only recorded daily. During the winter vacation in 2015, when Leyi received the training of the narrator, the process of frequent sea trips made her hear the sound of the heart, and the text could no longer satisfy all that she wanted to express. "At the time, the article seemed to be not specific enough to let people know what I saw. I also tried to draw, but I still couldn’t present the feelings of the moment, not enough physical, so I thought it would be better to try the seal!" The secret language, a seed of thoughts for the whales and dolphins, so silently made the "Ecean Stamps". Haiyin, named "Sea People" pronounced from the native Cantonese. I am asking the meaning of "sea people". "In our world, "sea people" is like a person living on the sea, but it is not a sea lover, it is more like a group of lunatics who like the sea! (laugh) We can be the sea Do a lot of things and talk to the sea. Maybe everyone has a different impression of the sea, but in our hearts, the sea will connect us together." Leyi explained. Regarding the creation of rubber stamps, Le Yi mentioned that he studied art with his master in Hong Kong and did not engrave marine-related works from the very beginning. "After coming to Taiwan, Hong Kong's friends got married. At that time, they couldn't go back to the wedding when they were studying, so the seals at the beginning were portraits and wedding wishes, and sent back to Hong Kong for friends." When she flipped through the portraits of the past At the same time, see a book seal hand release, no classification, no time to sort, old works and new works juxtaposition, so casually stamped on the paper page, swaying the brush strokes, accompanied by the melody of Leyi, The original memories also have this kind of commemoration. The portrait works on the picture above commemorate the most precious process of Leyi's life. "This is the most important sea lion in my life and me - Caddy. When I was a trainer in Hong Kong, I had more opportunities to contact sea lions, so in fact, I have a sea lion soul in my heart (laugh)!" Speaking in the ocean of Hong Kong Life in the park, Leyi said that he spent the first four years with Caddy, it is its trust, let each other feel a unique close friendship. "Caddy made me feel that they are very simple, and I believe in you! To some extent, for me, Caddy is inspiring me to leave this place to go far and continue to speak for the ocean, my main teacher of enlightenment." The Haiyin series begins with Leyi’s first encounter with wild dolphins. "The first wild dolphins I saw in the east were spinner dolphins, so the first seal was also it. The spinner dolphins surprised me. In the past, I used to contact bottlenose dolphins in Hong Kong, so when I saw It feels so small, the mouth is long! The weight is much lighter than the dolphins I have known in the past, only about 75 kg. It is because of its appearance that I want to remember this moment with the whales and dolphins, decided to continue the seal. Sculpture, similar to tattoos, there is no room for regret at the moment of engraving. When talking about the details of the seal, Leyi thinks that "you must first think about which reservation to reserve when you compose the picture, because you can't replenish it after engraving, unless you give up the re-engraving, so basically I will know my manuscript very well." The long line of pencils is in front of her eyes. When she demonstrates the process of pushing the line to the rubber block, it is still unimaginable. Using only a knife or an eraser, the contours and subtle features of various cetaceans are used. The seal can be engraved. The sculpture is similar to the tattoo, and she has some tattoos on her body. Perhaps she is also through the seal of the sea. She understands that the present life is like carving. Everything written is also imprinted on the pages of my life with bumpy texture. "In fact, most of the seals are the desire to see the whales and dolphins. Some of them are like them. They are like big whales. Although they haven't seen them yet, they like it so much." Leyi, who is familiar with whales and dolphins, It is said that I have spent a lot of time studying the illustrations, especially the whales and dolphins that have not been seen at sea. Instead, I have deepened my understanding at the moment of engraving. Talking about what they like, Leyi uses the name to share the origin of the original seal. "Some of them meet or want to meet again. Some of them have been met this summer, and they have to be "I must be one, you have seen it." Only!", some friends asked me to make it, because the dolphins have a special meaning for friends." She shared with a smile. "It’s strange to say that after a new dolphins are finished, it’s not long before each other. I will meet at sea." When I turned to this page, I read the text and found that it was a captive dolphins, and on the side was a trapped shark and a fishing net. I was also curious. I first met Leyi, who was in captivity, and when I met wild whales at sea, I saw the difference we could not see. She admits that "the wild bottle nose feels more independent and arrogant than the bottle nose that I know at Ocean Park. It is not very close and friendly to human beings. In the captivity environment, the original personality may not be the same, they have a lot of emotions. But there is no way to show it, but they are the most original and true personality in the wild. For this reason, I often ask everyone on the boat a question, "Do you want to see the true self, or face the person with a mask?" The purpose of Haiyin is not only to convey the cuteness of whales and dolphins through seals, but more about whales and dolphins. "Many times, the public's understanding of whales and dolphins comes from aquariums and marine parks, so stereotypes that whales and dolphins are going to perform for humans. I want to tell you that when whales and dolphins appear in front of us, they may be showing Strong sister, or in a state of alert, angry, etc., but must not appear for us in front of human performances." The large seal series of Haiyin is to cover the children when setting up stalls, "free printing, free pricing The way, the small seal is sold to everyone, and the seals sold are all accompanied by small cards to introduce knowledge or the connection between Leyi and the whales. "I hope that in addition to the seals, people who buy seals can learn more from them, and then tell others to listen to them. These stories about whales and dolphins." For this ideal, Haiyin also went deep from the Hualien coast this year. In the city, in addition to the occasional market stalls, small exhibitions and symposiums are also held. Taking Hualien as the first stop, then the port of Keelung, now comes to the New North Banqiao. Different from the seal, the whales and dolphins are present sideways. In the "Hai-Ink-Rubber Seal Exhibition", you can test the front and tail characteristics of 12 species of cetaceans, and even record the pea series of whales and dolphins jumping, and whales. Evolution process. Listening to Le Yi's explanation before the work, it is like listening to the commentator's detailed characteristics of whales and dolphins; "The top five common whales are spinner dolphins, patterned dolphins, tropical spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Freund's dolphins." Leyi introduced the common whales and dolphins in eastern Taiwan to everyone. Each cetacean species is accompanied by an introduction to Xiaowen, perhaps from how the seafarers call them, or what characteristics they have in their habits. Among them, the "Ricky Dolphin / Pattern Dolphin" is the most impressive. It is also the most recognizable and popular whale and dolphins in the east. It is especially introduced here. Patterned dolphins, unlike the common dolphins, have long mouths and strong physiques. They are also called "monk heads" and "big heads" in the sea-going population. There are accumulated white scratches on the surface of the skin, from foraging habits. Form of life. As the age grows, the pale scratches are covered with the whole body, and all the marks reveal its life. In the eastern part of Taiwan, there is a famous pattern of dolphins. The scratch on the fins is like the word "come" in Chinese. Every year, "come" is used to identify the old friend. I hope that it will come "every" every year. Asked about the creative ideas of the future, Leyi said that in addition to engraving the cetacean species, he also wanted to start working on environmental issues. In recent years, the seal has been used to interpret whales and dolphins, but she has not yet expressed her relationship with the land. She thought and said, "The next step is to seal the changes in Hong Kong's coastline with seals and to build a whole coastline with small objects. Come out! As for the second hometown of Hualien, start the coastline with Chongde. When the creation is combined with the sea, no matter what form or medium, as long as you believe that the sea is moving around, the link will always be supportive. Power, set off waves for the things you want to do, let the sun shine on the sea, sparkling. The sea exists in our way in different ways. At the end of the interview, people who are in a foreign land are so passionate about Taiwan's waters, even more familiar than us, and there are many shocks in their hearts. In particular, Leyi’s words: “I want to try to tell the Taiwanese that the sea that we face in our surroundings is actually wider than the land. Because it is facing the world’s largest ocean, so when When you don't know the ocean, you may only recognize a part of yourself. Although life is on land, land and sea are inseparable at this time." Deep thinking, the ocean surrounding this land, in the tide Between us, how can we not only be obsessed, but we can detect the personality of the sea, the hidden worries of the sea, and the turbulent changes of the sea. Read the story of Le Yi, readers who like Haiyin or the sea, and don't visit the "Hai Yin - Rubber Seal Solo Exhibition" to let the whales and dolphins introduce themselves to you.

Bunker on the hill: Moroccan minimalist residence Villa E

"You paint the mountain for me, I see a mountain." - Hu Jiarong, "Light on the Black Mountain" Painting the mountains, seeing the mountains, seating the hills, let the woods be a strong fence, let the hillside be a hard backing, in this piece Qiudi built a solid fortress. From the small window, reaching out to touch the air in the mountain, pulling up a trace of oxygen, inhaling and spitting out, can be a celebration of escape from the world. Here, keep the purest heart. Around the nature, painting with the landscape, looking at the ups and downs of the hills, may be who's home. At the foot of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, from the architectural studio Studio KO, the artistic residence of the East and West elements, Villa E, is an irregular layer of brown orange brick walls, forming a fallen block. Stone wall, building a fortress in the mountains. It takes about an hour's drive from Marrakech to get there through the valley trails. See the entrance to the wall with metal doors as the entrance. A quiet and lonely feeling is faint in the wind, but it seems to have a real beginning of physical and mental freedom. Villa E, which stands out in the mountains and has a privileged exterior wall, is based on modern minimalism in Paris and local aesthetics in Morocco. It is a simple and cold-hearted interior with tenderness. Using wood and stone, the rich texture of each space makes the interior rich in natural feeling, echoing the landscape of the mountains outside the house. Ornamental fabrics, bold choices to represent the local national totem pattern, when compared with the wooden floor, the color has a different expression. Black and white and light weight are quietly dividing the space. Pulling the black curtain is a private thing. After the curtain is removed, the daylight and the green leaves are stationed. If you want to own the owner of this home, the personality is roughly rigorous and the outside is soft and soft, advocating a natural, calm but slightly wild woman. In the space, each structure is composed of many squares and geometries, and the unity of squareness is square, but it is not conducive to monotony. The environment is fascinating, but the bathroom is the most amazing place. Like the concise space behind the black stone carving, the transparent ceiling can shed light, giving the black a layer. The water column and the beam of light have fallen on the body. In the state of nothing, it is like a seclusion, quiet and solitude, so that the washing and thinking of life philosophy, the oriental Zen and the western avant-garde, perfectly reflected here. Villa E is based on minimalism, avoiding unintentional stacking, and choosing only the installation that represents the concept of space. This is its charm. If you are fortunate enough to be a part of the mountain, staying in the mountains, you can choose to peek at the bustling city at the side of the box, then lie in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows and look at the heroic mountains, enjoy yourself, and simply fight against the chaos in this mountain fortress.

Injecting a dose of visual stimuli, a new type of pharmacy in the avatar color and building materials laboratory: Taichung Molecure Molecular Pharmacy

"Environmental memory" is not only a retrospective of a certain space, but also a sensory and breathtaking past experience. There are several fields in life, and we classify it as a "task-type" location. It should not be distracted and should not be treated for a long time. The pharmacy is one of them. Compared with hospitals or clinics, the environmental appearance of pharmacies is rather embarrassing, but the smell of drugs in their space is very clear in memory. If it is not suitable for leisurely and enjoyable distances, there is also a new space for breaking stereotypes and subverting public thinking - "Molecure Molecular Pharmacy". The Molecure Molecular Pharmacy in Taichung is the founder of the Pharmacy Family to rethink the traditional pharmacy format and to construct the space from the Waterfrom Design. Regardless of the drug supply area, the consulting service area, the adjustment area or other administrative offices, it is perfused to lead the design of the mass discussion space, and the time is light and slow. The term Molecure is derived from the reorganization of English Molecule and Cure. Just as the experimental nature of the pharmaceutical process, different molecules collide to produce new compounds, which brings more healing benefits to humans. hope. The inspiration for this concept through design is derived from the characteristics of the molecular trajectory: link and aggregation. The large-scale concrete wall on both sides of the space is lined with pebbles. The wall is covered with metal, light glass and transparent acrylic. The shape is repeated like molecular properties. The amber transparent pots stand on the shelf, and the brass spiral steps similar to the DNA double helix structure stand at the core of the vision, while blending into the space, and the infinitely extended molecular biology image is created. The open lab bench in front of the main wall is the core area of ​​the Molecure Molecular Pharmacy; changing the counter mode of the one-way service of the past pharmacy allows the pharmacist to interact with the customer at zero distance, so that the service is no longer limited to assisting. The workbench is warmly pushed by solid wood. The pedestal with the trunk of a hundred years is also the root of the whole space. It extends the greenness upwards and gives space to life. Natural planting hangs in the space of high height, no matter whether it is overlooking or looking up, it is not oppressive. In addition, the second floor along the stairs also contains exquisite ingenuity. The two steps are laser-cut out of a triangular punch like a molecule, so that the light leaking from the numerous holes is vertically spilled; when standing on the first floor looking up to the patio upstairs, it is like standing under the tree. Light and shadow transmission, mottled, flashing, the elements of nature flow between the heavens and the earth. From drug display and dispensing experiments to new ideas of thinking and values, the Molecure Molecular Pharmacy spans the established framework of pharmaceutical retailing; it fosters interaction through space and provides customers with more experience. Allowing customers to stop and even appreciate the details that are located in the space is a breakthrough brought by the Molecure Molecular Pharmacy. While staying here, you can think about drug needs, health care, and eating and drinking. These are rarely but very important issues. The time trajectory of people staying in the pharmacy is often left immediately after purchasing the required drugs; if we are ignorant of our health, we are eager to treat the current symptoms, and it is neither good nor long to explore the origin of the pain. "Prevention is better than cure" is a catchy concept, but it is not full of heart. The establishment of the Molecure Molecular Pharmacy not only opens up the possibility of traditional formats, but also attempts to bring the intimacy between people and health in a new form of pharmacy. In this spatial dimension, people come and go frequently, and the molecular image is infinitely colliding and expanding, and the green meaning is free and unrestrained; the perfect fusion function, aesthetics and experimental spirit inject a new hope for the traditional Taiwan pharmacy form. To Taichung, it is recommended to visit the Molecure Molecular Pharmacy to see the vitality of the new space. ...
