The Little Drifter
Wandering is an ancient activity. From myth to history, from saints to mortals, from East to West, this practice has been a temptation, calling on young people (or people still with passion) from generation to generation. Sometimes, it is for searching the meaning of life, sometimes for self-fulfillment, and other times for thinking, taking a break, or transforming. Over time, wandering has become a romantic act that carries on since ancient times to now. From a young child's perspective, Crystal Kung looks at the cities and places she has visited, where foreigners come and go (or revisit years later) for different reasons. Their stories are like mime performances that quietly invite us to a story about wandering. The child travels through Tibet, New York, Xi'an, Xinjiang, Shanghai, and Taipei, and reminds all wanderers of all the good things they once had and have not yet lost.
About the Author
Born in Xi'an in 1994, Crystal Kung was raised in Taipei and now is in her senior year in Shih Chien University’s Department of Communications Design and specializes in 2D graphic design at the initial stage of animation production. Most of the work is about people she has encountered or created. Kung had her first Wacom drawing board at the age of 16 and embarked on the journey of digital creation ever since. She mostly taught herself how to paint. Kung's work leans toward western style, which makes her stand out among fellow artists in Taiwan, who follow Japanese and Korean style as a mainstream. Kung is still exploring her own style and trying to establish distinctive characteristics. She is currently a student and illustration artist and also working on comics creation.
