DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Taste of the Old Times

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Calendar

INSPIRATION:
Due to the survey, about 60% of the teenagers in Taiwan had seldom/never interacted with their grandparents, or just talk with the same subjects. It has led to a deep gap between the generation. We interviewed many Taiwanese elders, gathering the unique items which belong to their era, and then transform the old memories items into new chatting topics on the "Old Time Memories Calendar". Only if the teenagers learn how to filial their grandparents, they would take attention to the aged society.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The contents of the calendar include 365 illustrations of old Taiwanese memory items, 12 edible papers of old Taiwanese taste. There'll be a Chinese distich and a dos and don'ts for grandparents and grandchildren related to each illustration. The"Old Time Memories Calendar" is the only calendar designed for generation interaction. It's not only a tool for generation chatting and improving family's atmosphere, but also a fun and learnable calendar which includes lots of old Taiwanese culture!

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Hang the "Old Time Memories Calendar" on the wall, tear down one calendar paper with your grandparents/grandchildren daily. You could share the old stories of the memories items on the calendar, guess the name of it through the Chinese distich hint, interact with each other by the dos and don'ts or even taste the edible papers! By interacting daily, the positive connections may be generated, and through this Reminiscence Therapy can evoke the elders' age-old memories and prevent senile dementia!

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in August,2019 in Douliu,Taiwan; exhibited in National Yunlin University of Science and Technology in December,2019; finished in April,2020 and will be exhibited in "Vision Get Wild Award""Young Designers' Exhibition" in Kaohsiung in May,2020.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We use thin(50p) white newsprint to print the calendar, which is the same material with Taiwanese traditional calendar. We also reformed the structure of traditional calendar hanger(which made with paper) with stronger/more durable wood structure,nails and manila hawser. The 12 tastes of edible papers were made by chopped ingredients(pineapple,burdock,ginger...w hich appropriate to different festival),sheeting mould and iron. All the edible papers were keep in the vacuum packaging.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The questionnaire survey for 65 plus age elders and generation families shows that the major problem between the generation’s chatting is "Repeatedly topics""Different values" and "Can't find the topic to chat". 90% of them are willing to try overcoming the problem. The teenagers like "Chatting""Listen to the stories" while the elders like "Chatting""Share the stories", and both of them are fond of "Old time items". As a result, we use the Taiwanese old time memories to start the chattings!

CHALLENGE:
Even though the topic is to reappear the rare tastes of old Taiwanese tastes, we can only develop the similar taste since we only have a few technique of food manufacturing and experience. It might be hard to develop the 100% as same as the real tastes in old times. To solve the problem, we are preparing to launch a crowdfunding, hoping to do more development with the tastes.
