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.[2]

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.”
Cited after Oxford English Dictionary.

7:43 PM"It is Lippard’s contention that despite the fact that our sense of identity
is fundamentally tied to our relationship to places and the histories that they embody, the uprooting of our lives from specific local cultures and places-
through voluntary migrations or forced displacements-has contributed to the waning of our abilities to locate ourselves. Consequently, a sense of place
remains remote to most of us. And this deficiency can be seen as a primary cause in our loss of touch with nature, disconnection from history, spiritual vacancy, and estrangement from our own sense of self. Her argument is not only that we need to pay closer attention to the role that places have in the formation of our identities and cultural values, it is to encourage a particular type of relationship to places so as to divert or turn around the trends of the
dominant culture."
