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.

流浪小孩

流浪,是個古老的活動。從神話到歷史,從聖人到凡人,從東方到西方,這件事呼喚誘惑著一代代的年輕人(或熱血依舊的人)。
有時是為了尋找生命的意義,有時是為了自我實踐,有時是為了思考/放鬆/轉換⋯⋯流浪成了從古至今,浪漫而持續的行為。
水晶孔以年輕的目光,看待一個個她曾走訪的地方城巿。一個個異鄉人,均以不同的理由走訪異地(或是多年後的重訪),如默劇般無言語的演出,讓人沈靜地進入一個流浪故事。而在六個故事中,一再出現的小孩,似乎都提醒著流浪者:那些曾擁有甚至未曾失去的美好事物。
六個地方,依序為:西藏/紐約/西安/新疆/上海/台北。


About the Author

Crystal Kung

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.
