Taiwan Hearts 小台灣紀錄展,已經正式的開始嘍~
展出空間雖然只有如電梯般大, 但裡面的熱情可是無限大的呦~~~

外牆的愛心們是選擇許多小台灣曾經旅行過的城市為主題

一個從舊金山發起的小小聲音
凝聚了每一顆愛台灣的心
在全世界各個角落熱情的傳遞

一共有183張照片
請注意…裡面有~~Amanda Hsu 許素兒 (ㄚ~~尖叫!!)

哈哈~我只是提供照片而已…
辛苦的是 Taiwan Hearts 團隊

看著牆上的照片
透過每一位旅人的鏡頭
一張張照片所表達的故事
你看到了嗎?

不論是
和人物合照
還是與周遭環境合拍

因為心掛念著台灣
才能拍出愛台灣的感動

在世界各地

不論種族小台灣都在身邊

就這樣小台灣
跟著大家一起環遊世界~真幸福^^

真榮幸,我也在名單中…(害羞~^^~)
來介紹一下我的照片吧…

0425金門國家公園 一切都是任性的開始…

0425金門國家公園 超幸運地在金門找到林媽…

0510雙溪賞桐花 是桐花美 還是小台灣美…

0615野柳 女王的脖子愈來愈細了…

0615野柳 還蠻多回憶在這的…

0619龜山島

每次都是從宜蘭看龜山島
這次從龜山島上向台灣招手…
應該沒人會理我~哈

爬了1706個台階,從401高地上看龜頭髮…嗚呼~

0707綠島燈塔

我一個人的第一趟環島旅行…
第一次到火燒島~好熱

0803東引島燈塔

在馬祖完成了我的微笑戳章
我的台灣368鄉鎮趴趴走~完封

0917合歡山

都快算不清今年到底上來過幾次…
好心情就會有好運氣

1215阿里山

還在難過今年都沒去奧萬大,
但看到眼前這超美的楓葉,
我想我也該滿足了… 水~~~啦~~~

帶著姊送的背包、龍送的娃娃、P送的睡袋…
這是我今年一個人最後一趟的環島之旅

也是我完成100年鐵道火車幸福100的旅行
耶~完封~興奮^^

99年年底,當時只有一個人待在福州工作,
想念家人、朋友的我唯一消遣就是skype、msn
或任由滑鼠在FACEBOOK上閒晃;
就這樣發現了 Deep in the Heart of Taiwan的小台灣活動。

原本只是抱著好玩心態留了台灣地址,
但當我100年四月休假回家時,真的收到小台灣吊飾了!

他們是玩真的~
而我也認真地思考~我想要的、想做的…

我,民國100年活得精采,真的精采100!

給所有熱愛著這塊土地的人們
無論你/妳在何處,讓我們一起來告訴世界:『我 ♥ 台灣 』

看到哈魯麻發噗說,小台灣在台北中山地下街有展
雖然說很想去,卻還沒排定行程
但、事情哪是能夠排了就算呢?

那天跟姐姐出門想去廟宇走走,再去茉莉書店
提前在雙連站下了車,想要在地下街走走逛逛

突然想到!!!

咦~~小台灣紀錄展就在會經過的路程啊!

IMAG0348.jpg

馬上衝了過去
姐姐還搞不清楚我興奮為何而生   哈哈

P1000275.jpg P1000276.jpg

手機上網真方便,趕緊拍了幾張傳上噗浪
再拿起隨手小相機拍拍拍

P1000278.jpg  P1000277.jpg

小小的  卻充滿了愛

IMAG0352.jpg

馬上發現慵懶小隊長!!!

IMAG0349.jpg

熟悉的大草地

開心的開始那一天的行程

驚奇美妙總是不經意處

我從Deep in the Heart of Taiwan的小台灣活動認識了可愛的小台灣,
得知它開始量產販售後,
也興沖沖的買了好幾個給自己和朋友,收到小台灣以後,
我把她吊在相機腕帶上,
從此她陪伴我到處旅行。

一次福壽山之旅後,
把我的小台灣在武嶺旅行的照片貼在Deep in the Heart of Taiwan粉絲專頁上,
我很滿意那張照片,
沒想到後來居然也獲得青睞,
它得以成為這次展出的一份子。

展覽的時間在2012年的2月,
不巧我只剩2/18有空,
但為了我的小台灣,
只好很瘋狂的當天來回台北(我住台南),
幸運的是有同樣瘋狂的朋友相陪  : )

我照著指示從中山站往雙連站方向走地下街,
很順利的找到了微展場,
真的好迷你,
而且毫不浪費空間,
公廁外的隔板上就貼著微展場的介紹。

小小的圓柱體,
外牆是小台灣們旅行過的城市,
裡面則是世界地圖和大大的台灣地圖,
由大家的照片拼湊而成的地圖,
從外牆往內望,
就會看到大大的台灣,
和我的小台灣照片。




忍不住想讓我的小台灣和台灣來張合照。
當然也要跟它合照。


可惜的是往來的人潮真的不多,
連要找人拍張照片都有點困難,
有位先生以為我要推銷,
急忙揮手說他趕時間,
幸好熱心的妹妹和一位先生幫忙我們留下合照。

看展過程中,
因為把小台灣取下拿在手上,
手又忙著拍照和拿一堆哩哩扣扣的東西,
就這樣我的小台灣遺落在地上,
再回頭去找已經找不到,
她開始了新的旅程,
希望下一個主人能好好對待她(淚)

但是看這場展覽還是很值得的,
就像看著一個小孩跌跌撞撞的長大,
終於有了自己的成果發表會,
加油!小台灣!

我愛台灣♥

We have put in a lot of thoughts & spent quite a bit of energy on planning, preparation discussion and installation for this Taiwan Hearts Lil’ Taiwan Documentary, regardless of time or anything else, we wanted to make sure we do our best no matter what.

In addition, we were able to maintain our original intention, and filled the exhibit with the loving support of all of our Lil’ Taiwan fans: friends who have traveled abroad for study/work that have documented their surroundings; second and third generation oversea Taiwanese who have come to know more about the homeland in which their parents and great parents lived; backpacking avid travlers who have brought Lil’ Taiwan and crossed over various mountains and streams and record their process; not to mention busy folks like us who always remembered to capture the moments with Lil’ Taiwan during parties and gatherings, so on and so forth.

Taiwan Hearts MOCA Exhibition: Day 4 & 5 Preparation

Last two days of our exhibit installation, we continued plowing the land and tilling the soil, hoping to smoothly finish all the preparations before the exhibition deadline, so we can present and share the fruit of our shared Lil’ Taiwan activities for the past year plus in the best light possible. : )

First of all, let’s glue those blue alphabets onto the beautifully painted white outer wall.

Then it was the final challenge of arranging and pasting the actual photographs onto the inner wall as a proportional world map as we had originally designed;
good thing we had already calculated the sizes and numbers before hand, thus our work became much easier as long as we had good eyes and hands to position the correct distances between all the photographs:

Thank you Robin for the peanut & red bean cookies and life-saving glue sticks : )

Also Taffi & Crystal who waited on us with the numbered and taped Lil’ Taiwan photos:

When we got tried, we’d sit on the side benches and check out passer-by’s reactions : P

Beautiful overhead lighting’s of course a must to shed some beautiful light onto those beautiful photographs.

Finally, all of our hard work was about to be paid off, now we can step back and take a look at the result of what we’ve accomplished in the past few days.

The shape of the island Taiwan could now be seen through the doorway of the MOCA STUDIO micro exhibit C+. Some people may ask, “Aint that a world map? Where is North America? Where is Africa?” Well, take a closer look, and you will see them both on either side of the exhibit inner wall, because we’ve set a larger than life (proportionally speaking) Taiwan as the center of the world map, waiting for all our friends to GO SEE IT IN PERSON!!! So GO guys! Especially those of you that have submitted Lil’ Taiwan photos for the exhibition cuz you will have a chance to see yourself face to face!


We’d like to thank all of our friends and families whom have supported Lil’ Taiwan all the way through. We’re very fortunate to be able to gather so many Taiwan-loving hearts to share our love and admiration for this land. We will try our very best to come up with better Taiwan Hearts projects to share with everyone; meanwhile, please continue to photograph and submit new Lil’ Taiwan adventures so we can spread and extend this Taiwan loving spirit : )

Taiwan Hearts MOCA Exhibition: Day 2 & 3 Preparation

Exhibit installation day 2 & 3, patching & painting continued~ Let’s take a little break from painting & repainting, patching holes, arranging & numbering photos, and take a look behind the scenes of our installation progress (and big thanks to those whom had helped us along the way) : )

Our Taiwan Hearts texts sat quietly at the corner, waiting to be mounted on the outer wall.

Thank you Big Brother Ho for expressing over our big foam map hearts & title texts:

These passer-by kids stayed with us and watched us paint for a loooooog time. They were exceptionally good and stayed out of the roped area without any further instructions, all the while kept telling their mom that they wanted to paint walls when they grow up. Soooooo cute!

While we waited for the painted walls to dry (phew!), we had to number every single picture and match it to its respective position on the world map so we can put everyone’s photos at the correct spots.


Thank you auntie 8, uncle 8 and Crystal for helping us arrange and label the photos!

While photo arrangements for the inner wall went on full-strength, we started prepping the big map hearts for the outer wall. We picked most of the major cities (whose maps we can get a hold of) that Lil’ Taiwan has traveled to, so they can match with the traveling photos soon to be on the inner wall : )


Gotta thank Elysium for the double-sided tapes express delivery~ Without Elysium, our big map hearts and photos would have nothing to stick to ah ah ahh!

Of course, our ultra special thanks goes to… dum dum dum dum dum… MOCA’s very own Ian!!! From concept to installation , he has had given us more help than anything and anyone. Can we say THANK YOU IAN again? Yes we can! Thank you Yi-Hsiang Lizard Ian!

Day3 installation had now come to an end… now we were about to face the heavy duty challenge of the… inner wall installation!

(continue~)

Taiwan Hearts MOCA Exhibition: Day 1 Preparation

Just finished day1 of our exhibition preparation, and boy are we dog TIRED! Whoever says long walks in a windy night after long hours of painting exhibition walls are good for your body?! Anyhoo, a picture’s worth a thousand words, so we’ve got several thousand words worth of pics below to share with ya below, come take a look! : )

As the 2012 lunar new year 9-day holiday vacation comes to an end, we try our damnest to forget all the excellent food we’ve had over the break, so we can wrap up our sleeves and switch gear into full work mode: MOCA exhibit installation here we go!

Shortly after noon time, we finally arrived at the MOCA underground exhibit hall inside/next to the MRT Zhongshan station, with buckets of paint and painting tools that we’ve purchased prior to New Years (in case the stores were not open during the new year’s holiday). It wasn’t an easy task since our preparation trip involved taking several buses, multiple MRT transfers, taxi and plenty of walking around in the greater Taipei city. To make the preparation more complicated, we accidentally left our painting pallet on the taxi (like how I left my cookie gift for grandma on the train just a few days ago!)… good thing the good folks at MOCA had some back-up tools for us… phew~

First thing first, gotta set up all floor coverings and newspaper cuz we do not wanna get paint all over the MRT station, knowing how splashy we can get when we get our grubby hands on ‘em lovely paints! We were then ready to paint over the previous exhibit with first coat of white base paint… which turned out to be slightly more complicated than we had anticipated. Even tho MOCA had asked us (and other exhibitors) to use ONLY matte paint, but the previous exhibitor still used both matte AND glossy paint (thanks a lot!), which meant it would be much more difficult for us to cover over the glossy painted areas since matte paint does not cover over glossy surface well… and we’d need much more paint to cover it up as that shiny high gloss paint would keep showing through (from experience, we know!). Oh man, are we gonna have enough paint? We had planned our paint supply to cover the exhibit with 3 layers of base coat… but but but…

Thus it began our ‘cover-up’ work. Not very fun, I must say. Using white paint to cover black lines already require several layers, and using matte white paint to cover high gloss black line requires even more layers of paint.

Finally we painted on 2 full layers of white base coat. But the previous exhibit was still showing through EVERYWHERE, like wrinkles on my face from overworking… We started to worry… were we gonna run out of paint now? We had planned it perfectly (even going 3 layers when the paintshop master told us 2 layers would be sufficient to cover up all the surface) but now… just like all zitty teenage girl, our exhibit wall also has the heart of a zitty teenage girl… it let out a heavy sigh tinted with sorrow cuz we couldn’t cover all the imperfections… damn, must we go as thick the white make-up on the face of a kabuki geisha? All in the name of art!


Our eyes started going after staring at the white outer wall for so long, so we rock-paper-scissored to decide and take turns doing the blue inner wall. Ocean blue is so puuurty, it was if we were surrounded by a beautiful ocean while we were painting inside the cylinder. All those zitty teenage girl angst had evaporated without a trace.


As time went on, all the white paint and blue paint we had purchased were used up completely. It was time to go. Tomorrow we still have to pick up the big stack of exhibit photos from the photo workshop, plus more paint to wrap up the paint job. Sore is now our name. But hey, from a distance, although incomplete, the white cylinder looked pretty good eh~ : )
