DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Crown of the Sea General

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Installation Art

INSPIRATION:
In order to remind people of the importance of respect while using marine resources, the idea of the Sea General came from the traditional folk religion, the Sea Goddess, Mazu. It symbolizes that to save the environment damaged by human beings, the Sea General sacrifice its own life and leave behind the crown to remind people of the meaning of cherishing the planet, correlating with the issue of marine resources preservation and climate change.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Located in Kouhu Township, Yunlin County, it not only takes on the elements from patterns of various ethnic groups, but is also equipped with practical functions, including benches for resting in the interior of the installation which provide sun-ray-shielding function, and white gravels paved around for children to play with which enhances the chances to interact with people and then to pay attention to issues of environmental protection and the ocean.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Crown of the Sea General looks like a character coming out from fantasy novels, deepens the visual perception to reach the goal of warning people that our future environment might face the fightback of nature. As for the colors, the design team chose to use prevailing decoration elements from traditional Taiwanese temples and deity statues and particularly commissioned professional Koji Pottery workmen to produce low temperature glaze kilning fragmented ceramic and tiles.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project finished in November, 2019 in Yunlin County, Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We took stainless steel bar and net as the frame, cement mortar as the molding material. The surfaces were applied with glossy glaze tiles, fragmented ceramics and close-lightly pebbles, and pottery plates as well as pot lids were embedded in as design to increase fun. Then mirror-pane glass formed the exterior, strengthening the perception toward the combination of tradition and modern.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The installation measures 10 meters long, 3 meters wide, and 4 meters tall. We apply the common construction method of Taiwanese modern temple roof, which comes in dragons and phoenixes, and also take the features of materials into consideration. Besides, artisans who are expert on making the exterior of temples such as legendary figures, statue of deities, auspicious animals are invited to work together.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The figure was set in the elements from mythologies. The crown came from Giant Groupers, which is a part of Taiwanese aquaculture. Indigenous, Han, and Japanese signs are introduced. The theme color is shades of red, which is a symbol of luck and happiness in Taiwan; black, white, and golden frame reveals a sense of exquisiteness from Japanese culture; the Mountain Patterns, which belongs to indigenous tribes in Taiwan, taking blue, green, and orange to represent atmosphere, sea, and land.

CHALLENGE:
Trying to combine modern art design and traditional craft, the design team especially invited molding masters and fragmented ceramic artisans constructing temples in southern Taiwan. Because of that, the design team spent a great amount of time communicating construction methods and related details, including design proportion, fragmented ceramic coloring, format, construction procedures, etc., which challenged the past designing and constructing experience of the designers and artisans.

PROFILE:
Rural areas of Taiwan Being forgotten by the time Making the population decreasing Low industry and scarce resources areas If art is an intermediary Can the rural areas find a new self-identification and positioning? The team started in the countryside of southern Taiwan in 2004, using the Tugou community in Tainan City as a base for practicing community design and rural art, accumulating years of experience and promoting the concept of the whole countryside area is an art gallery. In 2010, more young designers and artist were recruited to be settled in other rural areas in the south and find ways together with the local residents to plan a community space transformation. It is hoped that more people will discover the beauty of the countryside through art. The whole concept is that when art enters the countryside, it should maintain the humble attitude, emphasize the social actions of local residents, with optimistic and positive symbolic elements, even being integrated with the community living space and its functions. Professionals (including designers and artists) trying to integrate, care and understand the state of the pace, introducing field information and local perceptions, play the role of a place to tell a story, and the output can be a re-presentation of local life, culture, history, memory, and an intermediary for people to re-encounter, understand, and learn with the land. It is hoped that through art and design, a new rural revolutionary movement will emerge in the countryside of Taiwan.
