CHUANG Tong-Chiao

Home, solid and concrete. A place to repose on a cold wintry night; a place to rejuvenate on a warm sunny day.

Home, a safe haven. A place with warm bath and a comfortable bed; a place with my deepest and purest longing.

Years after leaving home for school and work, I long for the return to the pure and primitive longings. This is why House and Universe has been an ongoing project for me. I want to express my longing for home through simple geometric forms. Cold at times, warm at times, solid and untainted; like the words in the chapter, Simplicity, like The Dream of Home and Everything Breathes Again, I want to bring back the pureness in memories through elements in the universe, through discontinuous juxtaposition of singular temporal and spatial elements. Home, a shelter, a fortress, a place of dream.
