Believers in Town
Hung Yu Hao holds an MFA degree in the New Media Art Institute of National Taiwan University of Arts. His art expression focuses on geographical images presented through virtuality and reality in new media context. Hung has spent long time observing streets and alleys in old town areas because of the neighborhood he lives in. He has extensive experiences in introducing social cognition and group mobility into folk spaces from a gazing angle.
The development of coastal cities in Taiwan can be traced back to the settlement of the ancestors who migrated across the strait. Since their belief supported them to overcome fear and worry of the unknown during the settlement, temples have become the heart of local regions.
Jiali District, centering on Jingtang Temple, has passed down traditions of economy, art, education, and belief which carry diverse cultural connotations about communities, groups, and society for a hundred of years. Traces left by time can not only be found in architecture but also in public spaces and streets around the buildings and thus mingle with cultural pulse and fluid emotions in the surrounding areas.
In temple decorations, cut-and-paste crafts are commonly seen in the themes of well-known folk literature and endowed with educational and historical significance. The imagery is used to record the outline of streets around Jingtang Temple and depict geographical images of Jiali District. Through 3D scanning, the images of everyday street views seem to develop into a record of anecdote passing on stories about Jiali. Just like the ancient buildings that are still existing nowadays, this project aims to preserve memories about contemporary townships by digital technology.
