    Fortune stick

    Chance Fortune s t ick

    Goddess Matsu has become the most widely worshipped

    deity in Taiwan. When people pray to Goddess Matsu and ask

    what they need to know, the God would answer them through

    fortune sticks. The read-out mainly comes out through poetic

    expression. This project is planned to combine the former

    sixty fortune poems with a new one. We created something by

    fusing the old culture and the new comer in to one.

    This work also won the gold award in the New Generation

    Design Competition 2008.

    60 fortune poems are shown with 60 paper-cut models which have the five different colors

    yellow,green,blue, pink,orange to imply the image of metal, wood, water, fire and earth --

    the five elements in ancient Chinese philosophy and fortune-telling.

    The poems on the fortune sticks are taken down to the writing folds, not only because it is

    the most traditional way of bookbinding in Chinese culture,but also a manner used by our

    old ancestors to publish their books. Besides,the gold foil plated on the cover of the file is a

    symbolism in appliance with the holy spirits.

    (It is believed that gold is the color for the Goddess and silver is for the ghost )

  • For the purpose of having this subject close to perfect,we have made something really different,such

    as: sachets in addition to golden tea cups(a kind of offering),and charms against evils(after greeting a

    god,the Taiwanese may put some ashes of burned out incense into a bag to pray for safety).

    This completely shows the characteristics of Chinese people's belief and faith.

    The gold foil plated on the cover of the file is a symbolism of an appliance of the Holy spirits.

    ( Duke of C

    hou Dream

    Analysis)

    Zhou Gong J ie Meng( Duke of Chou Dream Analysis)

    Zhou Gong Jie Meng is written in ancient Chinese literature

    Chinese people believe the dream is the mirror of true life.

    Therefore, they make use of dreams to predict an event before it really happened.

    The book has classified dreams, and tells the reader about the meaning of them.

    Why does it have to be in black and white colors?

    The black color represents the night ,while the white color represents the daytime.

    The reading in black is printed in transparent ink, while the one in white is done with fluorescent

    ink.

    So we can look up what the dream is about in the book without turning on the light.

    We should also know the black one has to be read in the daytime,and the white vice versa.

    It is also a conception of the circulation of day and night.

    Posters of global warmingIn Chinese culture , monsters are considered to be responsible for disasters.

    That is to say, the evil spirits which cause floods, conflagrations as well as

    earthquakes in Shan hai jing are also the ones to be blamed for global warming.

    This series of posters try to alert us to the fact that the monsters are the products of

    human beings, so as global warming.

    Actually,the monsters of the books are the embodiment of human creature.
