I am a designer who cares about nature and children.
2020 is a turning point for me, the first time to meet indigenous life, which is beautiful and impressive. I have never known that before.
I have lived on the island, Taiwan, for 25 years. I felt like I haven’t cared about it before.
There are thousands of stories that happen in the mountains or beside the sea, which are unknown by the people outside.
Tribe, they call it. There are thousands of stories that happen in tribes, beautiful, grieved or complicated. Those stories are just like stars scattering on the island, innocent and shiny.
I’m not sure if it is appropriate to uncover, but I will like to collect those moments.
Recording those sceneries and stories, is the trace that people are hidden in the island.
The medium hasn’t decided yet. It will be a space to share those stories.
