土地作為地景放大鏡 Land as a Magnifying Glass of the Landscape

活動訊息 Info: 文化是軟作用力,隨著時間改變的文化影響下,地景發展穿越了許多階段,或許最終抵達其自身循環的終點。文化和自然的共同運作創造了社會生活的脈絡,透過環境思考我們的家和社區,創造關於家鄉記憶的另類敘事,讓人不再是環境的產物,環境才是人類心智的源頭,地景正是我們所形塑的文化表達與書寫。 Culture is a gentle force, and as culture changes over time, the landscape develops through many stages, perhaps eventually reaching the end of its own cycle. The operation of culture and nature creates the context of social life. Thinking about our homes and communities through the environment, creating alternative narratives about theContinue reading “土地作為地景放大鏡 Land as a Magnifying Glass of the Landscape”

空間自然力 Natural Power in Living Space

活動訊息 Info: 隨著社會經濟發展和城市興起,人口密集區的消費活動導致了對自然的疏離和陌生,我們該如何從生存空間理解自然與其運作?古人所言的「天人合一」之於當代解讀,增添了人與自然和諧相處的當代倫理觀念的若干想像空間。人們利用空間知識,探討空間的思維和行動,啟動一些另類思考和實踐,進而解決生活方方面面的空間能力(spatial capabilities)。當自然進入了寓所,融入日常並作為一種永續生活的橋樑,我們又該如何運用現有的生命經驗,重新認識家鄉的人與土地,自未來回看現在的空間紋理。 Reading the topographical writings written by writers will open up the horizons of life in other dimensions. With the development of the social economy and the cities, consumer activities in densely populated areas have led to alienation and unfamiliarity with nature. How should we care for the ecology of urban residences?Continue reading “空間自然力 Natural Power in Living Space”

樹捎來的訊息 Messages Brought by Trees

活動訊息 Info: 樹在我們生活中無所不在,不僅僅是自然界的守衛者、使者、滋養萬物的搖籃,也是城市裡的景觀基礎建設。當公民意識延展到環境生態時,生活在同一個空間的我們,究竟如何理解行道樹與生活空間的開放關係。已習慣生活在都會叢林中的我們,不知道是否曾經留意到公園綠地旁的商業大樓、捷運車站、學校或高樓住宅,時不時聽到「砰!」聲響而不曉得來自何方;當我們在路邊撿到掉下來的禽鳥時,該怎麼辦?鳥兒們是不是經常遭遇玻璃撞擊的隱形危機?英國藝術家 Celyn Bricker 的環境藝術創作中呼應了珊瑚白化、熱帶雨林消失到鳥類窗殺事件,藝術在生態議題中扮演角色,可否帶給我們多重省思與積極性解決之道。納入動物、鳥類、花草樹木作為我們的鄰居、朋友或家人,未來的城區建設與景觀紋理會比過往更加精彩豐富。 Trees are everywhere in our lives, not only as guardians and messengers of nature and the cradle of nourishment but also as the landscape infrastructure in cities. When civic consciousness extends to the environment and ecology, how do we, who live in the same space, understand the open relationshipContinue reading “樹捎來的訊息 Messages Brought by Trees”
