"I am very happy I hope you are too"展現了多項在不同領域上的嘗試,這項計畫是由材料導向發展⽽而來的作品,在設計面上這是一個電子材料和⼿⼯織品的混合體。而在藝術練習上,我視這些來⾃我個人日記或情緒的在布⾯上的 LED文字為⼀種親密感、共同記憶的符碼化。這些⽂文字視覺上被轉化成LED矩陣後,象徵了⼀種拆解重組的過程,一種情感的去除化,它已經失去原本⽂文字所具有的意涵,這些零碎的(文字)意涵在布⾯被重組成⼀種萬向的表徵,透過織品的形式被表現出來。雖然這些經過破碎且經過我重組的意涵已經不能被直接的閱讀,但是其仍和親密感、思念感、回憶等保有⼀定程度的連結。這些能和觀者產⽣生共鳴的破碎元素被轉化成聲音和光後,被附加上了節奏和頻率產⽣了新的量化關係。在社區藝術上,這個刺繡的工法建議了當代技法重新注入傳統⼿手⼯業的⼀種表現,對於傳統手工業和大量生產彼此關系議題上的一種初始探索。
 
2013年我因國藝會藝遊計畫於墨西哥瓦哈卡省駐村結束後,受一個當地藝術團隊Bandui Lab邀請參與一個當地的社區藝術計劃,有幸一窺此項以公平交易為概念的計畫:Bandui Lab先到偏遠的阿茲提克(Aztec)部落田野調查各部落的文化和傳說,再和村落協調聯合舉辦工作營並邀請當地居民和工作者參加,輔導他們用既有的木工或織布技能,以阿茲提克文化為主題設計出具當代設計感的工藝品,再輔導他們成立實體商店和展覽共同分享收入,這個計畫向我展現了藝術工作者對社區和傳統文化的關懷、影響力和實際作為,也在現代社會和傳統文化精神的斷層中提供了一個當代的橋粱。Bandui共有八個人,六人負責田野調查,由兩位藝術總監Leonardo, Clarissa主導產品風格和策展,每次計畫自調查到展覽約為期四到六個月。受此經驗啟發,2013年我開始沿續這個創作包括材料研究的發展,另一方面希望能利用刺繡作為一個媒介去結合公平交易的概念,發展出一種自給自足的微型的生產圈。
 
"I am very happy I hope you are too" is an etextile project relates community collaboration and my own fine art practice, it is a mixture of electronics and textile. In my art practice, I see those cramble LED texts as an codification of intimacy, it symbols a process of deconstruction, an elimination of feelings, it is no longer what it was but light and frequencies, it provides a new quantized access for us to think how feelings are composed before it is feelings.
 
In 2013, after finishing the art residency in the province of Oaxaca, Mexico, I was invited by a local project host by Bandui Lab to make a LED costume for wooden pupets. Bandui is a organization composed of a group of people who are passionated by Aztec aboriginal culture, they go to aboriginal village fieldwork their culture, legend, before they host workshop to coach villagers to make puppets based on their culture, they exhibit and sell the collaboration work in Oaxaca center afterward, 
Oaxaca cetro and villiages / communities participate in this project.

"Taipei is fun as usual, 
hope you are having fun in mexico too 
and growing in confidence and self recognition. 
when I think of us, 
I wonder and bewildered lots, 
but without nostalgia nor regret, 
I have smile on my face. 
see you sometime in the future hopefully maybe, 
if life will bring us face to face again, 
I am very happy I hope you are too".
