Works in residency
Observing what has Fiona (鄭惠文-exchanged Taiwan artist with Rungraupa)researched in several cities in Indonesia (Jakarta-Bandung-Yogyakarta) about how the art community and the society working together, collaborate for some projects, and some input from Fiona (鄭惠文-exchanged Taiwan artist with Rungraupa) about how Taipei artist worked, so there are some ideas / input for what will do in Taipei:
• Create a collaborative work with community / group around. Can be a mural or environment art (using thrift materials) and connecting with local issue.
• Create interactive work.
• Creating signage/designs/icons for some local issues, applied to some areas.
• Developing ideas above, and then applied in to merchandises / design (t-shirts, stickers, tote bag etc.)
