藝居裏的記憶｜Artistic residence memory
The Artistic residence memory captures “321 Arts Village” in the aesthetic guide book and postcard book. The two are designed in the active linkage form.
“321 Arts Village” is located in Tainan's North district and was designated as a municipal monument on May 13, 2003. During the Japanese rule of Taiwan, this district belonged to the old Matsu town, close to mountain artillery units and engineer battalions, and served originally as the official residences for the second regiment of the Japanese infantry. After World War II, they became dormitories for the teachers at National Cheng Kung University. In one of them lived the well-known Taiwanese artist Guo Pochuan, and it has since become a memorial museum.
On March 23, 2013, the district was formally established as the “321 Arts Village”.
321 Artist Village has a rich history, both humanitarian and ecological. It’s full of memories from different eras.
321 Arts Village combines historical and modern artwork, which conceives expressional sounds and visual memories as much as cassettes with different sounds. These “new sounds” are the incarnation of the “new life” of the 321 district.
The book is designed in the appearance of a "stereo" (aesthetic guide book) and a "cassette" (postcard book). The cover of the stereo book is designed with an opener, which allows the postcards to be replaced conveniently. The act of exchanging the postcards is the way to start listening to difference voices of 321 district, rotating old and new memory of the regional aesthetics.
Simultaneously, each book includes pages for note-taking. This gives space for interaction with readers, and enables “Artistic residence memory " to interflow but still to long-live with further 321 impressions.
