AN IDEA CAN TAKE YOU AROUND THE WORLD
EDITOR’S NOTE 停在十字路口等紅綠燈，你在想什麼？ 是放空？低頭滑手機？還是焦急地等著綠燈亮起，趕快往前趕路？ 每次看著LED顯示的數字，逐漸歸零，總讓我感到驚覺，那數字一秒一秒地倒數，其實不正在提 醒我們，你我的時間正在流逝。 時間在走，而我停在當下，這時候的我，總是會突然冒出一堆念頭：我要做的事情那些還沒有執 行；那些等著我的事情會不會來不及？ 十字路口的54321，這是屬於我的空間和時間，但和抬頭仰望天空，或透過哈勃望遠鏡看見的無 邊無際的宇宙相比，那簡直渺小無比。一個人的一輩子，甚至人類整個文明，不過是長河的一轉 瞬，滄海中小小粟米而已。 但換個角度來看，我的一秒鐘，也是宇宙的一秒鐘；我腳下的地球，也是宇宙裡的一平方米的土 地，如果我惡搞擺爛，或是全世界的人都惡搞擺爛，這個世界當下的一刻，時間空間就這樣給浪 費了。 為什麼我們生活的環境越 來越惡劣？大自然 越 來越骯髒污穢？如果太 空裡有一個紅 燈正在倒 數，我們的世界還剩餘多少時間？ 空間是昂貴的，因為永遠不夠我們浪費；時間是奢侈的，就算我們是最卑微最不重要的一份子， 我們應該也有些貢獻，回饋這個浩瀚宇宙因為我們總是沒有感覺地在揮霍吧。 如果這一瞬間，我能掌握，我能不能做一件讓我覺得有意義的事呢？ 想到這裡，我拿起相機，按下快門，捕捉一朵美麗的花兒，讓時間和空間的美好，留在當下了。
What goes on in your head when you’re at the crossroad waiting for the red light? Do you stare into blankness? Do you look at your cell phone? Or do you fidget anxiously waiting for the light to turn green? For me, the countdown timers always seem to painfully remind me that time is running out. It’s as if time is running, but I’m at a standstill. There’s so much to do. Will time wait for me? Will it be too late? 5,4,3,2,1… It’s as if those brief seconds are my own piece of space and time, a significant part of my world. But looking up towards the sky, those brief seconds can sometimes seem so minute in its relationship to the universe. From a certain point of view, one’s entire life, and even the era of an entire civilization, is nothing but a dust particle in the history and timeframe of the universe. I guess from another point of view, however small or unimportant our existence may seem, those few seconds is still considered a few seconds in the expansion of the universe. The earth we live on, however tiny in comparison, is still a part of the cosmos. If we don’t choose to live life to the fullest, or live life with a purpose, then we ultimately am the culprit towards wasting the universe’s space and time.
Why are our living environments getting worse and worse? Why is nature and its resources being depleted at such a fast pace? If there was a red light counting down in space, how much more time does earth have? Space is expensive because it’ll never be enough for us to waste. Time is a luxury, because we seem so unaware of its extravagance. To me, even if we are so tiny, or might be of no significance in the universe, we should still make our lives count. We should give back to the universe in any way that we can. If in this moment, you can be in control, why woudln’t you do something that actually makes a difference?
I pick up a camera, I press the shutter, and I capture a beautiful flower in bloom. May that exact moment of space and time, be captured and remembered.

拍攝想法 演過許多電影又導過許多電影的馮德倫，在拍攝婚紗照時不斷強 調自己是木頭，不太會擺pose，大家都笑了。 也許是印象太深，這次請馮德倫拍攝ABOOK雜誌的封面時，很 直接地就聯想到以木頭為主題。不僅用木頭做元素，更必須是死 板板的枯木。在我眼中私底下的馮德倫，是一位極度低調謙虛的 人。那樣的質樸與單純，或許褪去了演員與導演的外衣後正是如 同木質般的調性。 在藝術創作中，我們往往主觀地將這樣的特質視為一種框框、一 種限制，甚至是一種否定。但馮導並不將這些特質修剪或丟棄， 反而是待在這樣的框框與規範中，卻完全不受其限制。 在短短幾次的相處中我們見識了馮德倫的平凡，卻又深知他所有 的不平凡。因此我們以枯木為道具，並在鏡頭後靜靜等待著，看 馮德倫是如何用他的直覺為枯木注入生命，用藝術突破框架。
馮德倫，歌手，演員，武術指導，監製，編劇，導演，幕前幕後全方位的藝人。2007年，執導音樂 ＭＶ「天下大同」獲第18屆金曲獎「最佳音樂錄影帶導演獎」，2012年他所執導的《太極1從零開 始》進入了第69屆威尼斯電影節非競賽單元首映及第37屆多倫多電影節「特別展映」單元。2015年 擔任美國AMC電視劇《荒原》 的導演及武術指導。 圖 Joshua Lin 文 Joshua Lin / Kuan / Tonnie
Q 1：為什麼會想要從演員轉型成導演？ 馮：在當演員時，發現自己對幕後的工作很感 興趣，一開始對導演在做什麼其實沒什麼概 念，但在演戲時，知道導演的工作內容後，就
次的《俠盜聯盟》就充滿偷東西，飆車和追逐 戰，《荒原》則是帶著濃厚美國色彩的武打劇 情片。
Q 2：目前進行拍攝的電影《俠盜聯盟》 與劉德華，尚雷諾等資深演員合作，在和他 們互動及溝通的過程中會有壓力嗎？ 馮：我覺得不會有什麼太大的壓力，但因為是 第一次合作，一開始都需要有磨合的時間來瞭
在美國，兩者之間的差別我想主要在於，電視 劇較著重編劇及監製，導演可以每一集都不一 樣，只要劇情及風格是一致的。而電影方面， 導演可控制的部份就比較多。
Q 5 ： 在指導西方人和東方人的拍攝
Q 3 ： 馮導的電影大多以動作片為主， 是因為您的興趣嗎? 馮：我拍攝的電影都是自己喜歡的題材，當中 就算都是動作片，每一部的形式也都不盡相 同，像《太極》偏向武術動作主導畫面，而這
許多情況也因演員而異，像吳彥祖本身就有武 打的底子，對他來說在哪拍攝並無差別，我們 也因此可以安排一些更複雜的動作給他，而沒 接觸過武打的演員，我們會花一些前置作業的 時間來訓練他們，再安排替身去達到我們的要 求。
Q 6 ： 導演的工作是很複雜繁瑣的，其 中哪一個部分是您覺得最有趣且最享受的？
Q 9 ： 平常使用什麼樣的相機在拍照？
Q 7 ： 西方與亞洲市場的差別? 馮：導戲的部分並無特別的差異，但在分工的部
Q 8 ： 電影拍攝與製作的規格不斷地提
現，把電影播放的感官刺激帶到更高的層次， 給觀眾帶更不一樣感受，而他們也因此而得到 更多的成功，我覺得是非常好的，這樣一來有些
Stephen Fung Stephen Fung has starred in and directed many critically acclaimed movies throughout his career. But his recent marriage to international superstar Shu Qi has put him back in the spotlight like never before. Fung and Shu’s pre-wedding photos were shot by our very own Joshua Lin, and during the shoot Fung jokingly proclaimed that he felt “stiff like a log”, as he didn’t quite know how to pose in photos. This was quite funny to everybody, because his view of himself was quite contrary from reality. Thus, for the cover of this issue, we wanted to put a spin to the “log” analogy of Fung. We used elements of wood to portray Fung’s down-to-earth personality. Behind the scenes, Fung is a tremendously humble, gentle, and unpretentious person. There’s a simplicity to him, that when you take away the title of “Actor” and “Director” you see this sensible and relatable man, just genuinely in love with his job. Some in the artistic industries might be quick to judge humility and gentlenes as being soft or constraining. But what we see from Fung is his ability to embrace his own qualities and turn his ordinary qualities into extraordinary achievements.
Singer, actor, action choreographer, writer, director; An all rounded talent infront of camera and behind. In 2007, Fung won the “Best Music Video Director” award at the Golden Melody Awards for Karen Mok’s video “天下大同”. In 2012, his film “Taichi Zero” saw tremendous box office success and became the official selection of the Venice Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and Busan Film Festival. Fung who is currently acting as Executive Director and Action Director for AMC original series “Into the Badlands” has also just wrapped up his next feature film “The Adventurers” set for release in the summer of 2017.
How did you transition from Actor to Director?
A: When I was an actor I was always fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes. At first I didn’t really have a clue at all, but when I started to understand what the director’s role was, I slowly developed an interest in the director’s ability to tell a story and present its different emotions.
Your most recent film in production is “The Adventurers” starring Andy Lau and Sean Reno. Was there any pressure at all working with such big stars? A: I didn’t feel alot of pressure actually, but because it was our first time working together, there was a short adjustment period to figure out their personalities and the way they like to work. Working with such experienced actors, they are so professional at what they do that I didn’t have to offer too much direction. Alot of shots took just one take.
Most of your movies are action films. Is this your preference?
A: My films are about the subjects that I like. Though they may be in a similar genre, each film has its unique differences. “Taichi” focused alot on Chinese martial art sequences, while “The Adventurers” is an action packed film with car chases and things being stolen. “Into the Badlands” is even more different with strong American-style fight scenes.
American television series has entered into a seemingly new golden era. Your work on “Into the Badlands” and “The Adventurers”, how are they different? A: Television series don’t usually take as long to produce as movies tend to take, but for “Into the Badlands” we wanted to focus on and get the action sequences right, so we hired a martial arts team from China and Hong Kong. We put in alot of effort and resources, almost to the standard of a feature film. While shooting “Into the Badlands” I also met the cinematographer for “The Adventurers”. The difference between movies and television series in the U.S is that television series places more importance on the producer and the script. Each episode can have a different director, as long as the script and style is cohesive. In movies, the director has a lot more control.
Is there any difference between directing action scenes with Westerners and Asians? A: There’s not much difference actually. The choreography is determined by us, so they do the best they can to meet our requests. Alot of the times, things will vary when you’re working with different actors. For example, Daniel Wu
has a martial arts background, and so we can give him more complex and difficult choreography. For more inexperienced actors, we spend more time beforehand, to train them, and also the stunt double, to best get the shot that we want.
The job of a Director can get pretty complex. What do you enjoy the most? A: When a certain shot comes out better than expected, or when I get a new idea in the midst of shooting, or when the weather suddenly turns for the better. These things all make me happy and excited.
Is there any difference between Western and Asian film markets?
A: There’s no difference really in the role of the director. However, in the job delegation aspect, Westerners have a comparatively more mature and complete system. For example,
in terms of marketing, after the first episode of a series is aired, the marketing team dives into a detailed analysis of the show’s ratings, and does market research to see how well the episode was received. For “The Adventurers” I utilized a bit of their methods, and spent more time and budget on pre-production, to get the shooting schedule clear and accurate, so that when we started shooting it would be more smooth and efficient.
The standards and techniques of movie production are continuously rising. Virtual Reality movies are also gaining popularity. How do you see cinematography developing in the future? A: To me, Ang Lee and Peter Jackson have raised the bar for the presentation of 3D effects in movies. They’ve given movies the power to stimulate the senses, and have really brought the movie viewing experience to
another level. Because of this, many more movies in the future will have to be seen in theatres for people to truly experience its beauty. VR to me will bring about a tremendous change in the development of gaming.
What camera do you use normally to take photos? A: The most convenient camera I use is still the one on my phone. I also use the Leica M240 as it’s light and easy to carry.
What do you do to relax?
A: Sleep! Sleep is very important!
When do you like to take photos? What do you usually shoot? A: When I’m filming abroad I like to have a camera with me so that I can shoot whenver I want to. I shoot anything and everything, I don’t really limit myself.
The theme for this issue is “TIME&SPACE”. What’s your interpretation? A: I’m quite fascinated with outer space. If space travel becomes achievable in the future, I’d like to go and see planet Earth from up above. I’d like to experience what it’s like to be in space. Even though movie effects nowadays give us quite a realistic glimpse into what it’s like, I think it’ll still be quite different to be actually there in person. Compared to the size of the universe, people here on earth becomes so comparatively small.

間人來將包裹順利遞送。 從另一方面來說，我猜想透過使世界上的每 想像一下。
很不可思議。我覺得這是有可能的！ 當然有人會說透過臉書或推特，我們可以直接 搜尋到對方本人。但是那有甚麼吸引人之處？ 六度分隔理論被證實的當下並沒有透過電腦科
Ever heard of six degrees of separation? It’s the theory that we are all linked to one another through no more than 5 intermediaries. In snail mail time this theory was proven by randomly selecting people to send packages to a stranger located at a specific address. The senders knew the recipient's name, occupation, and general location. They were instructed to send the package to a person they knew on a first-name basis who they thought was most likely, out of all their friends, to know the target personally. That person would do the same, and so on, until the package was personally delivered to its target recipient. It took an average of 5-7 intermediaries to get each package delivered. Imagine that. If this were true, it would mean that I am linked to Michael Jackson, President Obama, Coco Lee, and even Kim Jong Un through literally just 5 people. To connect with MJ I would send my package to Joshua Lin, who would then send it to his god-mom in LA, who would then send it to her daughter who works in the NBA, who would then send it to her boss who could then probably send it to Paris Jackson, who could then lay it on her father’s grave (or give it to him in the backseat). Amazing. I think it could work!
being connected through six degrees of separation is so much more interesting and mysterious when no computer technology is involved. The true notion of six degrees of separation is actually being able to meet the target in person. It’s much like the complex idea of “guanxi” in Chinese culture. If I were to use my guanxi to ask Joshua Lin to ask his god mom to ask her daughter to ask her boss to ask Paris Jackson, if I could meet MJ, then the possibility of me actually meeting MJ would be like 80%...or am I being too positive… (I for one believe that he is still alive!). However if I were to private message Paris Jackson on Facebook, the possibility of her deleting my message would be like 99%. So close, yet so far away. On the other hand, I guess the positive aspect of having anyone in the world being accessible online, is that we could actually utilize social networking to maximize social conscience. For example, Sixdegrees.org founded by actor Kevin Bacon, actually links celebrities with charitable causes. Charities can fill in event information online and ask for celebrity drop-ins at their event to increase exposure or to amplify a cause. Sixdegrees.org takes the idea of connecting people and initializes it further by connecting people with charities, events, and ideas, which in my mind, is much more meaningful and the right way to bring people closer together.
Ofcourse some would argue that with Facebook and Twitter now, you could pretty much search up anyone in the world and instantly be connected. But what’s the charm in all of that? The entire idea of 姜安妮 ，生長於加拿大溫哥華。八年前結束了 於匈牙利電視台的主持工作返台，並於2011年開 始與姊姊成立TaiwanSPCA致力于幫助受虐動物。 目前任職於ABOOK STUDIO擔任副執行長。

目前人類的科技可觀察到的星系是處於非常遙遠的地方。它的光線可能花 了數十億年才到達我們的視線。光線在宇宙飛行到我們的眼前時，那些星 系可能已經成長到類似我們銀河系的大小，或者已成為更大的星系。我們 看到的也許已成為過去式。一個儲存在時間裡的影像。
The galaxies we can observe with current human technologies are so far away that it would have taken billions of years for its light to reach us. By the time the light reaches us, that galaxy may have grown into galaxies like ours, or larger galaxies with black holes in the center. What we see may be the past. Nothing but an image stored in time.
眼睛儘管看不透，想像空間卻可以變化萬千 時間容易被侷限，但思考空間卻沒有極限 空間與時間被限制在現實框架中，思考與想像卻沒有框架沒有邊
If our eyes cannot see, our imagination can. Time is easily limited, but our thoughts are not. Space and time is confined within realities’ framework, but thoughts and imagination has no boundaries.
眼睛看到的地方有限，看到的就只有眼前的景物，如果眼前一公尺有 一面牆，我們頂多只能看到這面牆，牆後是我們看不見的，但是我們 的腦就可以去想像，想像牆後可能是一大片汪洋甚至是星空......等。
The things we see with our naked eye is limited, because we can only see what is infront of us. If a wall is infront of us, we can merely see the wall, but not the wall behind. Our imaginations are different though. We can imagine that the wall behind us is blocking a vast body of water, or a sky full of stars.
意念和肉眼的觀看是不一樣的，意念可以隨時帶我們到任何的 地方。時間累積換來現在看到的場景，處在這個有著歷史痕跡 的場景中，我們的思考可以有很多不同的層次。藉由意念投射 出來的海洋、天空，遠到木星甚至 整個銀河系，代表著想像隨 時都可以有不一樣的轉動。

Our thoughts can bring us to any place we want to go. Over time, our thoughts can have many tiers, influenced by all the things we’ve experienced and learnt. The skies, the ocean, even the entire Milky Way, is within our reach, through our thoughts.

此次雜誌主題是時間與空間，大哥在廢工廠拍攝搭配投 影，想要表達出人雖然會受到現實實際時間與空間的限 制，但意念卻不會。和造型師小葳非常有默契的在２小時 內含妝髮拍完了驚心動魄的５套，令人嘆為觀止，以下是 拍攝完畢後多出來的時間進行簡單的ＱＡ。
Q 1 : 我們想詢問的是關於燈光方面的問題，為 何您會選擇使用DEDO LIGHT這個工具？
A : 因為此次拍攝使用了投影機，用DEDO
比較準確，如果使用閃燈，他的光和肉眼看到的光線會有 些落差，閃燈的出力也比較強，所以我用DEDO LIGHT是 方便配合投影機的光線強度去拍攝，這樣比較有協調性， 而不會在畫面的呈現上有一邊暗一邊亮的情況，如果使用 閃燈就需要花較多時間去調整，也因為出外景拍攝的考 量，這是一個比較輕便的選擇。
Q 2 : 在拍攝時使用DEDO LIGHT這種光源，想請 問在使用DEDO LIGHT時您有什麼特別的小技巧？
A : 其實我覺得任何的光源對我來講都一樣，不管是用 Flash或持續光，它們的原理都一樣，只是因為我們要拍攝 怎麼樣的東西而去決定。 剛剛強調因為帶的投影機光線不是很強，所以必須使用比 較長的時間去曝光，就算用Flash可以很快也沒什麼意義。 因為使用的底片是日光片，所以我在DEDO LIGHT前加了 一層淡藍色的濾片，讓顏色回來一點，不要那麼的黃。為 了不干擾投影機的光，所以也不想用太多的光去帶到牆 壁，如果牆變亮，投影機的層次和畫面的質感會被破壞 掉，DEDO LIGHT是屬於比較聚的光源，比較不會去影響 周遭的環境 。

Behind The Scene
Q 3 : 為什麼會想用投影去呈現不受限制的方式？ A : 其實有很多感覺我們都只能用形容的，我們眼睛 看到的地方很有限，眼睛就像顆標準鏡頭，我們看到 的就只有眼前的景物，如果眼前一公尺有一面牆，我 們頂多只能看到這面牆，牆後則是我們看不見的， 但是我們的腦就可以去想像，牆後可能是一大片汪洋 甚至是星空......等。意念和肉眼的觀看是不一樣的， 我覺得意念是可以隨時帶我們到任何的地方，但是用 眼睛我們需要到達那個地方才看得到。我選擇這個地 方是因為它即將被拆除，它經過了很久的年代，是一 座染布廠，它的時間是一個歷史，時間換來的是我們 現在看到的場景，被關在這個場景時，我們的思考可 以有很多不同的層次。用投影機是因為可以快速的投 射出不同的風景呈現新的場景效果。投射出海洋、天 空，遠到木星甚至整個銀河系，那是我們的意念，代 表隨時都可以有不一樣的轉動。
Q 4 : 在拍攝的過程，您比較願意犧牲曝光時間，而會比較希望光圈 都鎖定在至少f5.6上下，有什麼特別的原因嗎?
A : 這比較偏個人的拍攝習慣，我不太願意去把光圈開到最大，尤 其是在這麼暗的地方，因為我們不是使用自動對焦而是手動對焦， 對焦的準確度比較不好控制，所以至少收一個光圈，對我來說在拍 攝上會比較放心。
Q 5 : 您在拍攝時，不論是使用120或135，發現您喜歡用標準鏡頭去 抓取畫面，這也是個人習慣嗎？還是有其他原因？
A : 可能也是自己的習慣吧，一個鏡頭用久了，對那個鏡頭很熟 悉，我常在說『標準看人生』，透過一顆標準鏡頭，你可以看盡不 同的人生百態。我廣角鏡頭用得較少，今天要把後面的場景帶到又 要把人物顧好，我覺得標準鏡頭很適合。

Shot in an abandoned factory, using the projector, this is the portrayl of human bodies being constrained by time and space, while human thoughts are not. The photographer and stylist worked so insync that they completed 5 different mesmerizing looks and shots in just two hours. What kind of techniques were used? What light sources? Let us find out.
Why did you choose to use the DEDO LIGHT?
The DEDO LIGHT can more accurately blend with the light from the projector. If you use the flash, what you see may be different from what you capture because it is a much stronger light source. When you’re using a projector you want more cohesion, so using the DEDO LIGHT prevents you from getting one side that’s darker or one side that’s brighter. If you choose to use the flash though it may just take a longer time to adjust. For an outdoor shoot it’s just an easier and more convenient tool.
Any certain tips for using the DEDO LIGHT?
To me, any kind of light source is the same. Doesn’t matter if you’re using flash or continous light, their principles are the same. It’s just a matter of what kind of effect you are aiming for. Above we mentioned that the light source from the projector is not as strong, so thus we need a longer exposure time. Even if the flash can do that, it’s irrelevant in what we are shooting. The film we used is a daylight film thus infront of the DEDO LIGHT I added a light blue filter to bring the color back a bit, to make it less yellow. I didn’t want to interfere with the projector so I didn’t want to bring too much extra light to the wall. The DEDO LIGHT is a more concentrated light source that won’t interrupt with your surroundings.
Why did you choose to use the projector to portray the idea of being “unrestricted” ?
What our eyes can see is very limited. Our eyes are like the standard lens. We can only see what is infront of us. We can’t see anything behind or beyond. However our minds can run wild. Our imaginations can take us anywhere we want. I chose this rundown fabric factory because it’s about to be demolished. This place represents an era of the past, a part of history. Time has allowed this place to become what it is. In this space, with the aid of the projector, we can quickly project the different types of sceneries that we want. The ocean, the sky, Jupiter, and even the entire Milky Way can be brought forth, representing the power of our minds to change what we see.
In this shoot, you aperture was set at around f5.6, while sacrificing longer exposure time. Is there a particular reason for this?
This is more of a personal habit. I don’t like to shoot with the largest aperture especially in such a dark place because we are using a manual focus not an automatic focus.
When you shoot, whether it’s using the 120 or 135, you like to use the standard lens. Is this a personal habit as well? Any specific reasons?
I think it’s a habit as well. The longer you use a lens, the more familiar it becomes to you. I rarely use the wide angle lens. Today we want to capture the background just as much as we want to capture the model. Thus I thought the standard lens was appropriate.
Behind The Scene
在同一個空間裡待很長的時間，就像加班到早上看著大家在出門上班前排隊買早餐。在很短的時間內 不斷換著空間，就像與不同客戶開會在商業大樓間不斷低頭確認著手錶。我們上學的日子每天待在教 室覺得自己浪費青春，不夠時間玩樂。當兵的日子覺得自己浪費生命，沒時間陪家人。上班之後覺得 自己折損健康，爆肝就為了幾個錢。不斷搬家換著學校、不斷懷才不遇換著部門、不斷在消費了別人 的信任之後換著城市、不斷在病痛的陪伴下換著診間。
我們整段人生所佔的時間中開心的瞬間有時候僅僅只是小貓小狗做了些人類的舉動、政治人物做了些 可笑的決定、美國隊長的電影裡有蜘蛛人、馮迪索在街上甩尾。有時候我就這樣過了好幾個星期，卻 不覺得自己在浪費時間。多麼愚蠢的價值觀。但在一首歌被買走前、說好的款項入帳前、朋友的到訪 出現前、出院的日子來到前，竟是這些真正浪費生命的事物在延續著自己的笑容。

A long time spent in a certain space is like when you’re heading home after working through the night, and you see people reading the paper and eating their breakfast. A short time spent in a certain space is like when you’re rushing between meetings, constantly looking at your watch to see when you can leave. When we were in school, everyday spent in the classroom made us feel like we were wasting our youth. Not enough time to play. When we were fulfilling our duties in the army, we felt like we were wasting our life. Not enough time to spend with family. Now that we are in the work force, we feel like we are ruining our health, for nothing but a meager income. We constantly move, change schools, switch departments, etc. seemingly looking for something ‘more’. A significant part of our lives is spent focusing on those small little things. The new tricks that our pets have learned to do, or what humiliating comments another politician has made on TV. We find joy in seeing Spider Man in Captain America, or Vin Diesel street drifting in another sequel.These are the trivial things that have accompanied me through my life, yet I have never once felt like I was wasting my time. What twisted values, right?! Before a song is purchased, before my advance comes in, and before my friends arrive to see me, these are the actual things that are wasting my time, yet keeping a smile on my face. Our tug-of-war in between time and space, is clearly diminishing our will and innate human equilibrium. We’ve become used to absorbing the irrelevant. It’s as if our life revolves around watching soap operas all day, or anticipating the next episode of KUWTK . Yet what’s contradicting is, we all put up a front. We tell all those who will listen, about our dreams and aspirations. But when you actually dissect our lives apart, maybe all you will see are non-important cartoon characters, prancing around in a game, living in their own make-belief world.

每個人都像是社會中的一個聲音、一點噪音，當所有的人齊聚這些聲響時，卻成 了模糊不清的頻率。太多的聲音便不再是聲音，那些我們以為的吵雜聲流於空 白，消聲於白。 人們都有自己想傳達的聲音，從一無所知的新生，經過時間改變、社會化的束 縛，空間的轉載，幾年之後，也許都不再是原本的聲音。最害怕的莫過於這些轟 天巨響、喃喃細語，到最後都變成實際存在，大眾卻已聰耳不聞的「雜音」。
We are all â&#x20AC;&#x153;noisesâ&#x20AC;? in this society. When we get together, these noises become blurred frequencies. Too much sound become not sounds, but noise, turned into nothing. Everyone has an urge to have their voice heard. From the time we were born, to being molded over time, constrained by social norms, perhaps the voice we have now isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even the original voice we had. The scariest thing is when we voice our opinions but none of it is heard and that it all becomes just noise. Noise that noone cares about.

個體、單人的意念在混沌中發展，在自我的世界裡塑形醞釀。 人被形狀曖昧不明的網包圍著，形成了一個讓本性得以自由展露和 被受保護的空間，像在獨自想像中，自我獨白，喃喃學語。
Individuality. Shaping and brewing in our own world. Humans are surrounded by ambiguous shapes and lines, that protect ourselves yet at the same time lets us roam free. Like a monologue, in our own imagination. Muttering.

The socialized individual is like a voice; a medium. To the larger entity of a society or of a nation, this voice is shouting but not heard. Trapped within a frame. Frigid. Apathetic.
As we get older, we see ourselves for who we truly are. We break through things that hold us back, reaching a space for new dialogue.

Time and space are like lovers.
If they weren’t holding hands, loving each other, then the entire universe would not exist. Time is fluid. It is no longer abstract when relative to space. Space is static. Only with the passage of time, does it slowly change.

Do you ever wonder what the Earth will look like millions of years into the future?
Time and space is constantly moving. The last second will never be the same as the next.
Will we still be able to find traces of human life in between the mountains and the sea? What will be left when time runs its course through the space we call home? Will buildings be collapsed? Will poems not rhyme? Will paintings become fuzzy and blurred? Or will all things as we know it become binary code, quantified, but unable to be restarted?
Honestly, this may all sound very depressing, but I’m not at all saddened by it. The coffee bean’s aroma versus the smell of the cat litter; their value is in the eye of the beholder (or smell of the beholder). Even if you didn’t take a photo or video to document the current moment, you can still capture it in your mind, and let it become an inerasable part of your memory.

I guess the true meaning of the movie is that our time capsules shouldn’t be filled with the hopes of being found by extraterrestrials.

終有一日，一切的一切會被迫趨近於零。 僅存的無形記憶也將跟著被撕裂破碎，慢慢的、漸漸的。 而時於空的間隙內埋藏著變形蟲，分裂再分裂、破碎再破碎 將我們上班的路途、花果的氣味、摯愛的臉龐與溫潤的擁抱 一併輾轉後炸裂。
One day, everything will reset back to zero. Our intangible memories will be torn apart slowly, while an amoeba will erase all of life as we know it. The smells we love, the roads we are used to, the ones we care about, will be like a supernova, removed in a catastrophic explosion, unable to be brought back.

Founded in 2014, Homework Studio may take a little more effort to find, in the alleys behind Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. The manager tells us that they don’t like to make things too complex, but rather prefer a more casual demeanour. Their shop is filled with an elegance, adorned by antiques and custom-made furniture. Aside from selling out door-furniture and naturally made merchandise, product and space rental is also part of what they do. They hope that their products can last a life time and develop its own personality with each use. It’s their way of communicating with nature.
Why do you put so much effort into offering custom-made services (ex. paint jobs, color correction, etc.) for your clients?
A: I had a client who came in quite often, and her hobby was photographing food. She came in once and bought a table and a chair to use as props in her shoot. I loved her photographs. So when she asked for custom backdrops I would do it for her. I think custom-made items has this appeal. Though the profit margin is not high, it’s fun, interesting, and assists our clients, so why not.
We noticed that the photos on your Facebook p age is very casual yet has this vintage feel to it. You can see the detail paid to each picture. Have you learned photography before? Or is it because of your background in architecture?
A: Thank you for liking our photos! Unfortunately I’ve never taken classes in photography. I think it’s just intuition and because we do it so often, you kind of learn through trial and error. I’m lazy sometimes and ask my colleagues to help me with the photos. There’s so much more we want to do that sometimes I feel like we aren’t doing enough.
What camera do you shoot with? How did you learn to adjust the color of photographs? A: I’ve never learned how to adjust color, I just do it according to my own taste. The camera I’m using now is Sigma’s DP2 Quattro. This camera to me is sufficient, the quality is good, and the photographs come out with this natural look to it that mimics that of a film camera. I guess other cameras can also fulfill my needs, but I specifically like the physical appearance of this camera. I don’t want to use a camera that I can’t handle either, so this one is good for me.
HOMEWORK carrys mostly secondhand items or things that have a history. How is it different from the more commercial select shops out there? A: We have assistants overseas that are on the look out for unique items. When we’re travelling we are always looking for one-of-a-kind items as well. We pick items using our own intuition and with the needs of the store in mind. Sometimes when we buy an item, we come back here and tweak it to our own style. Sometimes we buy it and don’t re-sell it, unless a client is really in love with it.
How did you come up with the name, HOMEWORK? Is it because you wanted a homey feel to it? A: To us it’s an easy to remember name. The idea behind it is that you must always finish your homework in order to play. Everything has to do with the home. Much like our space, it’s like your house, and the things we carry are useful things you can buy for your home.
What’s the merchandise selection process like for you? A: When I’m choosing items I often use my imagination. I once saw a quote in an antique shop overseas that read, “we buy garbage, but we sell you antiques”. This kind of thinking is a lot like us. We buy stuff you don’t want, but then we clean it up, and transform it into something that we like. Then if you like it as well, we sell it to you. Alot of the items increase in value after our transformation. It’s a simple idea actually, but it’s less seen in Taiwan. I find things in Taiwan lack a type of quality. Like this rug. When I bought it it looked good, but seemed to be missing something. So, I added a handle to it, and now it looks completely different. I like working with local tailors and carpenters to create things that we love.
There’s alot of vintage items in your store, but someone without a knowledge of antique items might not be able to understand it. Is there any specific item you’d like to introduce to these people? A: I’m not sure whether or not people understand our merchandise. But I do know that our clients tend to have an unique sense of aesethetics, compared to others. People who come in have an interest in vintage items. Our store is tucked away in a small alley, so foot traffic isn’t what we depend on. We welcome everyone to come explore our store.
Besides assistants overseas who helps you pick out things, where else do you go to find items? A: Usually we pick out items when we are travelling. There’s no specific location really. We don’t really run HOMEWORK as a store, but rather a workshop. It’s also a space for me to hold all my collectibles. So there’s less pressure because it’s like a hobby.
Each artist goes through phases in their creative journey where they prefer certain styles of work. What phase are you going through now? A: A while ago I was infatuated with camping. It’s mainly because when you’re outdoors you feel this connection with the innate human need. When you’re out there in nature you need to be able to adapt and combat any situation. Thus I’ve created couple items that are related to camping.
In your designs and creations, is there a specific item that stands out to you?
A: I recently created this leather stool. It’s an inspiration I obtained through my travels. I saw a similar design overseas, and thought that I could do something similar. It turned into something that I’m very happy with.
What’s your interpretation of TIME & SPACE?
A: People often ask me where I’d like to travel to? I’d always tell them, I’d like to travel to the 70’s. Travel back to the past, to a time before I was born. In Taiwan during that era, there were alot of talented artists, in architecture and in music. In our world today, there’s too much distraction. People are easily distracted, influenced, and too eager to show off their work. It’s hard to find things that excite the heart anymore, which is unfortunate.

好氏研究室成立於2006年。在2009年-2012年前往北京發展，期間除了進行品牌塑造與教育 的工作以外也實驗性的成立自己好氏的品牌商店，2013年返回到台北同樣的進行雙向工作， 從親身的空間經營去切入市場再分析反饋經驗給客戶端品牌規劃服務。
G O OD DE S IG N I N S T I T U T E
陳 崇 文 Va n
麼？ 希望好氏品牌研究室是什麼？ 我們希望他是一個風格的體驗品牌，因為在台北很容易每家店看起來都很類似。好氏在空間 上每一季都會進行變化之外，在形象上也有自己完整的視覺系統，在商品上目前積極的規劃 研究室商品，在行為上未來計畫從事較有趣的移動計畫。
在品牌規劃的業務上，我們都希望用風格去進行所有的設計規劃。而在自己的空間裡，也是 每一種不同風格的體驗，從商品的選擇，音樂氣氛的挑選，空間的視覺調整。如果能靜下心 來感覺，其實我們還蠻前衛的。
想要透過設計傳達給大眾的。 應該就是不同風格的可能性，我們習慣去排除市場上既定的視覺印象，而去實驗另一種新的 發生，當然從識別、商品、形象、空間到企劃，整體的呈現是我們比較堅持的原則。
我們在從事規劃之前會表達希望能直接與最大的決策者碰面與溝通，這樣比較能夠理解業主 實際的美感範圍跟真正的經營思考是什麼，再進行長時間的了解與交流，甚至於業務的拓展 與市場的開發都讓我們參與進去，然後每一個委託的客戶幾乎都跟我們變成朋友，這大概也 是好氏的魅力吧。
奇氛圍，是什麼原因想要營造出這種感覺？ 其實早在五年前，我們在北京的空間就已經以我們的品牌調性去進行自己空間的設定了，而 在三年前回來臺灣的時候，這樣的風格市場上仍然是沒有的，所以就想作個不一樣的嘗試。 應該很高興也越來越多品牌嗅到這樣的氛圍，進行調整，讓台灣不會只有工業風存在。
程，為什麼會想要進行相關的座談活動？是想要教育客戶與消費者還是有更多想法 要傳達？ 我們早期進行了幾十場品牌規劃的工作坊還有提供品牌診斷的服務，目前也定期持續的到全台灣 去進行品牌規劃的課程跟交流，因為光靠設計去改善這塊土地，依我們比較主觀的想法覺得太慢 了，實際的去接觸消費者，客戶端，讓他們能夠理解跟接受較為不一樣的風格跟美感，這可能是 我們想要改善這塊土地比較積極的部份了。
擇的標準是？ 應該是獨特性跟可以調整的可能，因為台灣市場其實很小，台北更小，所以大部份的品牌其實通 路上很容易到處都是，所以我們比較傾向可以進行討論跟產生新行為的獨立品牌，不過台灣品牌 進行兩年之後 我們慢慢往國外去尋找合作了，而漸漸的我們發現自己可能不像一家店，比較像一 個獨立的空間，因為每一樣產品都會跟著發生一個行為跟氛圍，這也是未來期許自己的。
生趣事可以與我們分享？ 以設計業務來說，中國客戶比較開放，他們幾乎不會更改設計，他們總是希望每次都可以提供沒 有見過的規劃。台灣客戶相對的保守，每次提案的提案溝通，要花比較長的時間去引導跟提供安 全感。以商店來說，中國的客人，只要是新的品牌商品，只要是品質夠好，他們通常不會猶豫會 進行消費，台北的客人，對於沒有見過的商品，會保持觀望的態度，尤其是品牌知名度不夠高的 話，他們就要一段時間去認識跟理解。
如果說品牌部份，台灣其實已經有在慢慢進步了，從我們進行設計服務的角度去觀察，可能是 比較客觀的視角，台灣的商業美感都是從觀望到發現到模仿這樣的一個進階，只要某一個業態 一個品牌紅了很快的就會出現其他很類似的風格出現，而等到大家都很像生意不好了，就會再 有一個品牌跳出來去做不一樣的改變，然後其他人再跟著觀望到發現到模仿群聚式的前進這是 台灣一個品牌發展很有趣的方式跟狀況，但缺點就是，每家店都長得很像，商品很像，行銷方 式很像，氣氛很像，設計很像。
目前其實已經在計畫接下來的品牌發展，可能會開設其他的業務型態，但是教育會希望是每個 業務型態的基底，可以除了消費以外還能提供更多的養分給這塊土地上的人們。而當然比較特 別的獵奇風格是一定會存在的。 大家未來見吧！！
Good Design Institute (GDI) was founded in 2006. Between 2009 and 2012 GDI was primarily based in Beijing, where they offered design and branding services. During their time in China, they also operated an experimental concept shop where they introduced many Taiwanese designers to the Chinese market. In 2013 GDI moved back to Taipei and created a space that has become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;style experienceâ&#x20AC;? for consumers and includes a coffee shop, design studio, and retail store.
Besides being a design studio, retail store, and coffee shop, what else does Good Design Institute stand for? We hope that it is a brand that symbolizes a “style experience”. In Taipei, alot of the stores tend to look alike. At GDI we focus alot on changing the interior of our space each season. Branding wise we also have our own complete and unique image. We are also currently developing various experimental-design products, and also plan to do more fun and interesting pop-up events.
What’s GDI’s business philosophy?
Branding wise we always like to focus on developing a “style” , and go about it from that perspective. When it comes to our own space, we consider ourselves quite avant-garde. From our product list, to the music we put on, to our interior design, we have our own style.
GDI helps clients with their branding and design needs. What other messages do you wish to portray through design? Probably just the possibilities of different styles. We’re used to going against market trends and stereotypes. We like to experiment with new possibilities. Ofcourse, our principle is to create a cohesive brand for our clients, from the planning, execution, to the products, space, and branding, we always have the brand’s style in mind.
What’s the biggest difference between GDI and other design studios?
We always like to meet the top decision makers of our clients because then we can straight-forwardedly understand their beliefs and see what they like and don’t like. We often participate in the market development or business expansion of our clients because then we can truly understand the entirety of their business and their needs. We always become great friends with our clients. I think that’s the charm of GDI.
The GDI style and your coffee shop has this “laboratory” essence to it. Is their a specific reason as to why you wanted to give people this kind of an atmosphere? Actually five years ago, our space in Beijing was already designed to embody this atmosphere which is essentially our innate style. When we came back to Taiwan, we found that there wasn’t anything like it, and so we wanted to create something different. We’re quite happy that many different brands are catching on to this type of style, because we hope Taiwan can bring about more than just that industrial style and vibe.
GDI does alot of research work and also holds alot of seminars and workshops. What made you want to do all this?
In the past we did alot of workshops focused on branding. We still hold alot of courses on marketing and branding. We subjectively think that using design to improve our country is too slow. We believe that reaching the consumer, the businesses, and letting them understand and accept different aesthetics and ways of doing things, is a much more proactive way to contribute to our society and the land that we live on.
When GDI is looking to carry various brands or feature certain artists in your shop, what criteria do you look for? We look for its uniqueness and its moldability. The Taiwanese market is very small, and Taipei even smaller. So it’s very easy to see the same stuff everywhere. Thus we lean towards working with independent brands that are open to communication and have an open mind. We’ve now gone overseas to look for different brands and products. We’ve slowly realized that we’re not really like a shop, but a co mbination of individual spaces because each item that we carry has its own unique display and mood.
GDI has worked in China and in Taiwan. Any differences or interesting stories to share with us? With our design work, our Chinese clients are comparatively more open minded. They rarely change what we offer them. They’re always hoping for something they’ve never seen before. Taiwanese clients on the other hand are alot more conservative. We spend more time explaining our designs. As for our shop, Chinese consumers aren’t hesitant about supporting new brands as long as the quality is up to par. Whilst Taiwanese consumers are more weary of brands they’ve never seen before. If the brand is not well known, they may choose to take more time to understand the brand before purchasing.
When it comes to design, what do you think about the present environment in Taiwan?
When it comes to branding I think Taiwan has improved tremendously. We are more objective because we see it from a design point of view. What we’ve noticed is that Taiwanese still like to copy anything that’s successful, and what you’ll see is that a whole bunch of similar concepts or stores will pop up at the same time. When business starts to slow though, you’ll see another brand jump out and do something completely different. And then you’ll see a bunch of copycats pop up again after that. This is the interesting way that we’re sort of moving forward. The downside to it is you see alot of stores looking the same, and brands carrying the same types of products, marketing it the same way, etc.
What’s the future direction of GDI? Any goals?
We’re looking to expand our different product lines. Though education will still be the fundamental quality behind each new business venture. We hope that besides consumption, we can do something meaningful for Taiwan. Our adventurous style will always be around.

無盡的時間裡，她沉迷于各種課題，時間、靈魂、生命等等。回過神，帶著 研究成果返回城市時，當年的街景都已經消失，人們談論的是Art Deco以及 大爆炸理論，這才驚覺已經過了一個世紀的她，慌張跑回樹洞中。再次探出 頭，卻來到了80年代臺北街頭，音樂播的是鳳飛飛，人們趕著上舞廳。
這樣往返幾次不同的時間、地點，研究室開始堆滿了各個時空的物品，樹洞 內也漸漸被植物侵入占滿。雖然可以隨意在時空之間來回，卻怎麼也無法回 到開始的年代，無法回想起當時的街景、氣氛跟話語，甚至連至親的長相也 變得模糊。 在無盡的時間裡，鮮花不會凋零、屍體不會腐敗…時間的流動也就好似靜止 了般。或許這是永恆的生命，也或許是永恆的死亡？科學家想不明白，就自 顧自的在各個年代間搜集記憶的碎片，自我認同的碎片。穿著西裝卻光著 腳、用科學的方法解釋宗教信仰……在矛盾以及空無之間遊走尋覓著…… 其實我們都曾經在路邊碰見她，總是有點不合時宜卻是典雅的獵奇博士。
TI ME I S R E L AT IVE
In the 19th century, a scientist created a secret research room inside a hollow tree. This became a grey area, not constrained by the elements of time and space. An area not interrupted by the outside world. With infinite amounts of time on his hands, She became addicted with studies on the human soul, life, and time itself. She spent many years in the tree, but one day when she finally decided to leave the tree, She was hit with reality shock. People she met were talking about Art Deco and the Big Bang. She suddenly realized that she has missed out on an entire century of time. Frantically she rushes back to the hollow tree, to where she felt safe. There she stayed for a long while. One day she decided to finally step out again, but she comes to the quick realization that time is different once again. She has arrived in the 80’s and Taipei in the 1980’s was brimming with music, dance, and Feng Fei Fei. Suddenly she has an epiphany. Though her travels through time and space, has allowed her to accumulate a bunch of “stuff” from different centuries, her beloved hollow tree has aged and has become covered with moss and leaves overtime.Though the tree has allowed her to travel in between time, it cannot bring her back to any specific era. Her memories of certain streets, or the appearance of loved ones has become blurred. The scientist realizes that with infinite amounts of time, flowers don’t wilt, bodies don’t decompose…it’s as if time has stopped all together. She thinks to herself that perhaps this is what eternal life looks like. Or maybe, it’s eternal death. She couldn’t understand why her memory was lost and did everything she could to bring it back. She began to collect pieces from here and there, from various eras. Picking up pieces that she felt were important. Very quickly she became a wanderer searching for meaning in empty spaces. She was like someone walking in between contradictions, or someone wearing a suit with bare feet, or someone trying to decipher religion using science... Perhaps time has a role in keeping things in order. A role in keeping us sane.

Eileen Mao Mixed-Media Artist Eileen Mao是洛杉磯的複合媒材藝術家與插畫家，他在１３歲時隨家人從台灣搬到加州。２０１６ 年畢業於南加州的Art Center College of Design。他的作品經常在探討美的概念，同時不斷挑戰 觀眾對美的看法，他對奇妙的題材總是充滿興趣，並且不限制於特定的時空環境。 Eileen Mao is a mixed-media artist and illustrator based in Los Angeles, CA.. She moved from Taipei, Taiwan with her family to Southern California at the age of 13 and graduated from the Art Center College of Design in 2016 with a BFA in Illustration. Eileen’s work frequently deals with the idea of beauty, challenging viewers to question if what they see is beautiful or ugly, and whether or not there is something appealing and heart-felt within the hideous. She is endlessly interested in subject matters that are sincerely bizarre and aren’t constrained to a certain time or space.
女象人 創作這幅畫的靈感一開始是從David Lynch的1980年電影《象人》 而來，所以稱之為《女象人》。我想藉著它來表達人會老化的必然 性，所以特別加強了大象臉上的紋路。圖中，象的臉被接在一個女 人的軀體上，而她穿著一件優雅的晚禮服。這女人對自己的愛與驕 傲反映在她的姿態、和她選擇的穿著。這兩項優點一直支撐著她古 怪多變的自我，帶著她走過生命的起伏，漠視其他人異樣的眼光。
Elephant Woman This piece was originally inspired by The Elephant Man (1980) by David Lynch, thus the name. I wanted to address the inevitability of aging, by emphasizing the wrinkles on an elephant’s head. It is juxtaposed on the figure of a woman, who is dressed in an elegant and body-conscious gown. The subject’s self-love and pride are reflected by her poise as well as her choice of frock. Those qualities have carried her quirky self through the markings of time and the changing tides of life, in disregard of the views of others.
旅行者 畫裡的女孩獨自地站在她自己的空間裡。她穿著一件像和服的短 袍，後方多層的布料有著抽象形狀，相似於綁束和服的腰封。這 些層次象徵著一個人在生命中所累積的精神與物質包袱。女孩願 意放棄與保留多少，決定了它們的重量。同時，被她選擇後保留 下來的一切，若是好的，會成為她美麗的裝飾，而不是累贅。
Traveller The girl in the image stands alone in an isolated space. She is dressed in a kimono-like robe, with layers of abstract elements that resemble various obi-bows. These layers symbolize the emotional and physical baggage one accumulates through life. Its weight is dependent on what she’s been willing to abandon and keep. Simultaneously, the chosen remnants can actually be adornments for her presence, rather than things that weigh her down.
紗 被一層紗蓋過的眼睛代表著失明，還有對某些人事物的盲目。這 張圖表達的是選擇性盲目帶來的體驗 : 過濾掉眼睛可以輕易看到 的一切，得到新的發現。
Veil The veil signifies literal blindness as well as disregard for the physicality of people and things. This image describes the experience of discovery through filtering out what the eye sees. Things that weigh her down.
Rosemary 一個女人的畫像。以壓克力顏料乾刷上紙 的印記相似火焰，象徵著時間的考驗，也隱 喻女人對生活熱情的態度。在她平靜的姿 態中，她的眼神堅決的看向遠方。這幅畫 的畫名來源於Roman Polanski的《失嬰記》 (“ Rosemary’sBaby”) 。Waterfall
Rosemary A portrait of a woman. The dry-brushed marks indicate fire, metaphorical for the tests of time as well as her fervor for life. In a relaxed composure, she looks adoringly and firmly at a vision. The title is also an homage to the Roman Polanski film Rosemary’s Baby (1968).
瀑布 有著黑暗色彩的夢境。在夢中，我看到自己坐在一 片廣闊的綠草中。對面是一個大瀑布，其中有好幾 個詭異的旋渦不停地轉。落水聲很大 ; 草地像是充滿 了露水，被濺出的水沾溼了。高大的綠樹密集的圍 繞著，像是一道墻，將我原本的生命阻攔在外。那 一片刻中，我忘記了恐懼，專注看著這片景色。侵 略性的瀑布不停的層疊下墜，大樹們寂靜的站著。 一個生疏奇異的片刻凝固在我腦海中。
Waterfall A dreamscape with a dark undertone. I saw myself situated in a vast field of crisp grass with a frontal view of a waterfall that strangely had vortexes twirling within it. There were loud splashing sounds coming from the waterfall, and the grass was adorned with glistening drops of water. The surrounding trees seem to be barring me from my old life. I remember just being entranced by the view, the aggression of the water cascading down versus the tall tress that stand still next to me. A moment of a surreal space frozen in time.

AN IDEA CAN TAKE YOU AROUND THE WORLD Ed Wu
For Ed Wu (吳建衡) he never thought about being a photographer, nor a photojournalist. But by chance, he had the opportunity to travel to over 72 countries documenting the iconic Taoist deity, “The Third Lotus Prince 三太子”, and even got a book deal out of it. How did this all happen? It all started with an idea.
Back in 2011 Wu had already worked and interned at numerous multinational companies, but somehow he still felt an emptiness inside. Not knowing exactly what he wanted for his future, he purely hoped for the freedom to explore his opportunities, and to not be tied down by any social expectation or job.
Wu came up with the idea of photographing “The Third Lotus Prince” and decided to embark on a journey that he hoped would introduce Taiwan to the rest of the world. He rented a costume, paid for his own trip to India, and took off. The Third Lotus Prince became his travel buddy, his partner, and his muse.
Photographs of his journey in India started garnering local media attention. He then travelled to Kenya, Ethiopia, Brazil, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Cambodia, Myanmar, Korea, and so forth, introducing the Taiwanese deity to the world. Photographs of him and his muse quickly resonated back to Taiwan, and the entire project took off. Suddenly Samsung, Pxmart, and Lexus all wanted to support Wu and his endeavors. He subsequently got a book deal and in 2014 his book 《台灣三太子出巡囉！熱血壯遊72國》was published. Two years later, Wu is now in Pakistan, and we spoke to him about his current trip and what we can all expect to see next from his travels.
