Habitation is a nomadic site-specific project created by artist Hui-Ying Tsai. The project explores the concept of home and the modern utopia for human and animals by building a nesting structure in different locations with local materials. The design of each piece involves field study and reflects on the history, environment, and community of the site. Each piece functions as a social hub or habitat for people and animals. The work becomes a monument of the home building process. By collaborating with each community to make art, Project Habitation enhances awareness of the natural and cultural landscapes that responds to the presence of the place.
棲地是一個針對特定場域進行的長期遊牧創作計劃,以探討家與當代人類與動物的烏托邦概念為出發點,應地制宜,衍伸出對環境、社區發展、在地歷史、文化脈絡、國土邊界等議題的關注,反映地區居民與其所處的人文自然環境之現狀。計畫中的單件作品個別針對在地提出獨立的觀點,期待整體累積的系列作品能提供一個宏觀的角度觀看現代人的生活處境,並推廣行動、參與、與當下的重要性。
