Materials Collected from the Land

Created with materials collected from the mountains, these works awaken the most intimate interaction between humans and nature through the wisdom of the mountains, allowing members of the tribe to stay in their homeland and reach their potentials.

 

The creative life in the eastern coast of Taiwan is filled with callings from nature: the shell-gingers swaying in the wind, groups of paper mulberry in the valleys and streams, the thorny bamboos and Bambusa Utilis resisting the North-East Monsoon and typhoons, as well as the perennial native species Margaret Rotang Palm. Throughout the process from collecting, selecting, cutting, trimming, boiling local bamboo, to applying bamboo rattan craft, members of the workshop engage in conversation with the natural materials with their hands and bodies, gradually forming a ray of light that gathers energy.
