Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
依稀記得，幼年時的我，總喜歡光著腳丫踩在太公家冰冰涼涼的地板跑來跑去，還記得那地面就像是鑲著一顆顆的小石子般，卻又是那麼的光滑和平坦，長大後才知道這種地板原來也有個名字——磨石子。 對於許多人來說，磨石子地板總伴隨著童年與故鄉的記憶。踏在上頭的冰涼，是屬於舊時台灣的樸實感。我將兒時記憶中太公家的磨石子地板的特色，轉換製作成能承裝物品的小圓盤，供日常生活所用，希望能喚醒埋藏在大家記憶中兒時的回憶，想起曾經踩在腳下的美好。 In my vague memory, i remember when i was a child, i always liked to run around barefoot on the cool marbled floor in my great-grandfather’s house. The floor was inlaid with many little stones, but yet so smooth and flat. When I grew up, I realized the floor tiles had a name called “Terrazzo”. For many people, the terrazzo floor is accompanied by memories of childhood and the hometown. Stepping onto that cool surface releases a sense of simplicity and nostalgia of the old Taiwan. Using the memories and features of the terrazzo tiles in my great-grandfather’s home, I transformed them into small round functional dishes that can hold objects and be used in our daily lives. I hope to invoke and spark the memories buried in our childhood, and be reminded of the beauty that we once placed our feet upon.
