Banciao apartment A project report

Abstract (Summary)

For this MFA exhibition, I created an illustrated book, which I had professionally printed and bound. I made thirty-five illustrations for the book, and twenty-five were exhibited in the gallery in addition to a printed book. The book is eight inches by eight inches. My original illustrations are larger, ranging from twelve by twelve inches to twelve by twenty-four inches, which sit across one entire spread in the book.

Banciao is a district in Taipei, Taiwan where I lived for four years during my undergraduate studies. The narrative is based on my experiences living away from home for the first time in an unfamiliar city. After having lived in different areas, I became interested in how people react and adapt to new environments. Our viewpoints change when we experience different cultures. For me, it is one of the most profound things that I have done in my life.
