Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
Using the tips of my thumbs and forefingers I created tiny and careful actions to represent my own small voice. This meditative movement is between pressing and pushing. Each small individual porcelain fingerprint is a reconstruction of my identity. It represents the relationship between me and the dominant western narrative I find myself in. This exquisite circle piece is inspired by the Taiwanese traditional wedding cake shape. After the wedding ceremony, the couple will share their cakes with each guest to wish for a happy marriage and to bring good luck to others.
