TSAI Meng-Chang

Since the year I changed to work and live in three different cities, I started to notice those trifling whispers that hided in some corners. They are not magnificent, on the contrary, they are something with withered or wet sections, which are secretes of the glamor and made me, fascinated. In the so-called grand narratives, what kind of skills that people need to follow and to learn how to survive? Where can we live in? If all the things could be renewed, but the dust still covered on them, why did we feel they were New One ?

I always can not catch on the tide of the central city, so I will persuade myself that I have been abandoned on the edge of the inside corner, even though I think of that, I usually feel I am in the other party of really life. Where is the place in the city will let people settle down forever?
