Paper Travel: Moving Vistas: Sixty Observations of Taiwan in Motion

This is a record of illustrator Yu Teng's observations of Taiwan. Her illustrations faithfully chronicle the old lifestyles and overlooked corners worth remembering in this age of rapid change. The first observations were of turning wheels. Taiwan is a land of movement; all over the island people come and go, hasty and hurrying to make a living. Some choose to chase their dreams on four wheels, giving new forms to commonplace vehicles. A car or a truck may be a little shop in and of itself, bridging the gap between town and country, filling needs, selling convenience, dealing in intangible emotion as well as tangible goods. Teng chose 60 scenes of motion worth remembering, all painstaking portraits of daily work. The power of images is harnessed to show the beauty of life on this island, and to pay tribute to the workers giving it their all.

紙上行旅的移動風景

最初的觀察,其實是從轉動的輪子開始的。
台灣是個流動的國度,人們從四面八方而來,為了生活而快速轉動,有群人選擇把夢想安在輪子上,將尋常的交通工具詮釋成全新的樣貌,一台車即是一整個店鋪,他們負責接駁著城鄉之間的差距,修補生活中的匱乏,販售著即時的便利,工作除了交易商品,也交易著情感。
作者選擇以六十個值得紀念的移動風景,透過一幅幅的畫作,忠實記錄汰換快速的年代中,最值得記憶的台灣老生活及小角落。用圖像的力量展現這個島嶼的生活之美,也藉此向認真打拚的工作者們致敬。
