Our Personal Public Art

People streaming in and out, as well as the arrangement of lamplights among three walls make a complete installation with speed and rhythm, which reflect the same elements from the public, and present an image of the connection between MRT stations and the city. Through the stories told by different media and images, the time and space among three walls become the trilogy across the development of human civilization.

This installation unwinds the original elements of cities in Taiwan and humanism, later becomes a hyperlink with streams of people flowing in time and space simultaneously.

"Our Personal Public Art" is divided into three parts and located on three walls, reflecting the gradual evolution of human civilization. The first wall named "The Dawn of Civilization" symbolizes the emergence of human culture and mirrors the images of season changing. The second wall, "The Richness of Literati Culture," shows the rich meaning and memory that the invention of language brought to human civilization. The third wall is "A Contemporary Look of Digital Age," describing the effect on our life after electronic media appeared. All pieces of artwork made by the registered members of the public art (http://www.publicart.tw ) will be displayed on the large TV wall in turn. When passersby see works they like, they just have to touch the sensors built inside the small wooden frame and their praise will be sent directly to the work. He or she will know that they are not alone.

Fast or Slow

Artist: Koichiro Miura

Completion Date: September 2010

Medium: Anodized aluminum plate, aluminum rail, acrylic panel, LED illumination

Dimensions (cm): H235 x L2380, H235 x L1920

Location: Transfer passageway connection Wenshan-Neihu Line and Nangang Eastern Extension on the parking level

Cost: NT$5,000,000

Selection Method: Open competition


Fast or Slow

The work "Fast or Slow" consists of sheets of anodized aluminum panels and light panels controlled by motion sensor units located on the surface of two walls. Its central theme is a mental and physical stimulus through a simple interactive experience. It provides three patterns that vary in the way the light panel are switched on and off.

(1) Chasing pattern: The LED panels in front of the walking audience light up and turn off quickly so that the audience feels that it is chasing the illumination.

(2) Fleeing pattern: The LED illumination behind the walking audience lights up and turns off quickly so that the audience feels that it is fleeing from something.

(3) Gliding pattern: The LED illumination around the walking audience is lit for a relatively long time so that the audience feels as if it is walking with something.

Its form and meanings intend to provide an opportunity to think about lifestyle in an age of transition.
