"Living seeds in the waste salt field" A Documentary short film on the ecological art activism in Southwestern Taiwan
A friend invited me to give a two-day (12/8, 12/15) patchwork workshop at her alma mater of Shuang-xi High School, New Taipei City. The participants of the workshop are boarders, some of them are nice kids, but more are high-risk students. Although it's a challenge to get these kids being concentrated for a while, the results of their work are quite encouraging. And, after the workshop, I stayed one more day to give the works a finishing touch, group them into 4 tablecloth to be exhibited.

Julie CHOU focuses her artistic development on environmental and community art. CHOU collaborated with the villagers and created organic gardens in Treasure Hill. She also holds workshops of clay and fabric, inviting people to create their own art works.
Title of works:
The works in this exhibition have neither fixed subject nor clear image.
Rather, they are outcome of the free flow of mind, following the sensory memory and responding to the gallery space, trying to find out the possibilities of making ceramics which convey the non-flower / non-vessel characteristics against the conventional concept of flowers and flower containers.
