The original intention of making this “I am fine” series of postcards is because my university is far away from home to and it is not convenient for families and friends to visit me. Therefore, my family have to make calls to learn about my updates. However, I am not very good at expressing myself by words. I want to make a postcard by colored paper and pens, named “I am fine” series, as my way to responding to my family. I don't want them worry about me.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
This is just a way for me to express love, not a solution to any problems.
创作过程 & 结果呈现
Creation Process & Result
I used colored paper, pens and scissors to combine the words of “I am fine” with graphics. It was similar to make hand-made collage when I was a child. Then I took pictures of the work by camera, and used the photos as cover of postcards. I made a postcard-like book that each page is an independent postcard. I can just tear off one page at any time and write something on the back of the poster card, then post it with a stamp.
如何理解项目与“人文湾区 ∙ 温暖的设计”这一主题的关联性？
How does the project reflect the exhibition theme "Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design"?
I grew up in the Bay Area. My university is also in the Bay Area, but my home is across the sea. When I was a child, I often saw some geometric decorations on the flower beds along the streets in my hometown. Maybe that’s why I like collages. My personal purpose is hope to send love from one city to another in Bay Area by my postcards. It is also a way of me remembering the city and the life during my childhood.
