In 2019, a visual party of lines, color chunks, and fluorescence sparked Taipei. It was the Tape That Art Exhibition organized by FunDesign.tv and Tape That Collective. A variety of projects with unusual ideas and techniques were presented in 8 tape art installations and exhibited over 40 tape paintings, together with videos of the artists’ work in the past. They also added brilliant sounds and light to make the event an immersive art milieu and materials they applied included cloth tapes, duct tapes, paper tapes, packaging tales, plastic tapes, and foils.
“Heaven Bloom” is located in the lobby of a building which was designed with concept of nature. The installation is composed of 144 mechanical metal flowers which were made of aluminium and stainless steel, different finishes were applied to metal in order to produce special textures and colors. The metal flowers will be in bloom out of the surface and become a dynamic piece collocated with the ambient sounds. Different patterns and movements allow flowers create a near-natural scenario indoors, building a simulation of a phenomena in nature.
Design is created from the urge of wanting more natural interaction in the surrounded environment. 'Alive' is inspired by water - the foundation and source of all life. Once Marcele Kuliesiute crossed the biophilic design definition, she tried to apply the aspects of it to the design. It says that rhythm or movement, perceived in nature, creates a strong impression and a positive impact on the people. The designer created 'Alive' for public interiors, offices, and other public spaces, to provide the vitality of the environment and to remind of and nurture Mother Nature.
Inspired by profound feelings towards nature and experience as an architect, Lee Chi focuses on the creation of unique botanical art installations. By reflecting upon the nature of art and researching creative techniques, Lee transforms life events into formalized artworks. The theme of this series of works is to investigate the nature of materials and how materials can be reconstructed by the aesthetic system and new perspective. Lee also believes that the redefinition and reconstruction of plants and other artificial materials may make natural landscape have an emotional impact on people.
As a child, Pang Swee Tuan loved visiting the beach. Memories of these happy moments have always stayed firmly with him. Inspired by the intricate details on corals, he created the series "Coral - Rhythm of the Seas", to commemorate the wonderful times of his childhood. Coral-inspired, this teapot has a single handle that effectively encompasses handling the teapot from all directions (overhead, left or right) and is inclusive of the myriad of ways different cultures handle a teapot.
Dachuan lane of Chengdu, West Bank of Jinjiang River, is a historical street linking the ruins of Chengdu East Gate City wall. In the project, the archway of Dachuan Lane in the history was rebuilt by the old way in the original street, and the story of this street was told by the street art installation. The intervention of art installation is a kind of media for the continuation and transmission of stories. It not only reproduces the traces of historical streets and lanes that have been demolished, but also provides a kind of temperature of urban memory for the new streets and lanes.
