This project was inspired by a beautiful home on the countryside of Taiwan where each room had elaborate and extravagant furniture and decor carefully curated by Guilin. Within these rooms, I collaborated with fellow artists and friends in Taipei to create fictional characters that might exist and live in these lavish spaces.

EARTHLING: In Early Modern English, the word was used with the intention of contrasting “earth” with “heaven”, and so presenting man as an inhabitant of the sublunary sphere, as opposed to heavenly creatures or deities.
Thomas Nashe, Christ’s Tears (1593, 1613), p. 124: “Wee (of all earthlings) are Gods vtmost subiects.”;
Drummond of Hawthornden, Poems (1711), p. 31 (written ca. 1630): “Nature gaz’d on with such a curious eye, That earthlings oft her deem’d a deity.”
