Micro-Scale Atlantis

All the clues we learnt about Atlantis were originated from the Dialogues of Plato. Geographically, whether Atlantis was located near Cyprus, Crete, Ireland, Strait of Gibraltar, Cadiz, or even Antarctica, the assumption was based on the vision of human-scale only. However, if we can break the stereotype or abandon man’s perspective, and try to review the clues from a different scale, will there be other discoveries?

To search for a new perspective, I returned to the origin, re-read the Dialogues of Plato, excerpted the hidden clues from the text. Then I switch to a micro-scale vision to explore another possibility of Atlantis legend.

 

 

Sandstorm•Travel Souvenir

This creative art piece was inspired by the sandstorm that hit Taiwan, which not only brought in severe air pollutions, but also took in rare fungi that didn't grow in Taiwan. To track down the subtle footprint of the sandstorm, I traveled around Taiwan to fifty railway stations to collect local air and microbe and stored them in the glass bottles. This collection is a display of invisible impact of the sandstorm and implicit memory of my journey.
