Nuance Effect Stream of hetero-consciousness

The project tries to reveal what has existed from the past but covered by modern infrastructure through a new way. It is the operation of metaphorical system and code transformation. Urban environment contains any fragments in the surrounding , people’s memory , and atmosphere floating in the air .

A Whole Year

Page 11

Nuance Effect

Fragmentary urban condition In reality, fragments of architecture may be door, walls, or windows. So,how do we define the ‘fragment’ ? In realistic life, time in urban is continuous. However, memory and perception is formed of countless fragments. In daily life, environment is originally seen as background. If we consider some things to be separated, the other will be whiteness. Street light, bustling of cars, red wooden door mar be the scenery to home of some people.

Page 12

Nuance Effect

Urban Concealment Urban is developed so rapidly that a lot of elements of the past are covered by modernization. Human behaviour and activity also has been hidden for long time by concrete and skyscrapers.

Fragments in poetry When it leaves blankness between fragments, it comes out imagination within them. In the world of poetry, it selects fragments of text and combines with whiteness. When people are reading, they experience symbol and perception beyond what they can feel in the realistic world through the unfamiliar language system on the base of familiar logic.

Nuance Effect

Nameless City Metaphor of the ‘ wall’

1. The walls along the stream have accompanied the dwellers for many decades, but these dwellers never see the face of the stream. They walk along the wall each day and sense the existence of it. 2. Windows on the stream-side walls indicate the direction of the stream but never show the phase of the stream. 3. If you stand in the alley on the slope staring at the wall , you will find a ‘window’ in there.

Tea Factory as site

It used to produce tea for over 100 years but closed a few years ago.

It was a hollow shell, a forgettable area, a covered history in the city.

New Tea Place

I try to redeďŹ ne it as a tea place where we can place our own memory and share it with people.

As time releases from the tea, people’s memory is intervened again.

City in the Sky



Strong sunlight, cloud, rain, fog, floods, sunset, wind ,influence of people ,etc. - these immaterial factors intervene space change the condition of objects. The identity ,area , atmosphere of space also change at the same time. It’s a dynamic network built of three kinds of scale. Fragments of city, architecture, objects. The walls hatched black are existing. The new intervenes with a light way. When we see objects as independent presence, people, environment, and time give them new meaning which is not for practical function.

Concept from snow The nature I observe is snow. It can stay on any shape in the world.

Atmosphere in snow In the snow,we are like walking in an amazing dream , because it has various faces and create an experience coexisting opposite condition.

It is like condition of layers of glacier , surface of that is soft , and the under is hard , I use the feature of material to place the program and to let people feel their in the snow because of the change of the sounds.

C o n c e p t I analysis these four kind of snow , and ďŹ nd four kinds of element that form the different snow. Transforming these four kinds of element to different medium of interface. And recompose these interface to respond the quality of element in snow . After that , I create different composition of interface that can affect the sounds and make it be absorbed or reected .

Make a balance between tour and dwell

My site is in Jiufen. It's a very noisy place. The noise of tourists always disturbs residents. So I use my system to build a theatre . Not only let people have open space which can communicate with others but also make the sounds stay in the place , not to disturb residents .

Concept of flora to build a shape of continuously foreseen space My concept is to change perception of people , which can be changed by design . If perception of sight and consciousness is connected with symbol of possible activity , people will know where they want to go or where they are going to arrive.
