櫃之家 Cupboard House
2016, wood sculpture, electric and pipe, furniture installation, 240x210x360 cm
《櫃之家》原是 2016 年受忠泰美術館委託製作的Home 2025戶外展覽「資訊站」，當時核心的想法即是以此件作品示範如何以「創作」取代「設計」，藉由導入「大量交織」的創作概念，提出以木作櫃體的家具工藝介入微型建築的生產，並將資訊站本體也成為展覽作品的一部份，也扣合當時「家」的展覽主題，將此一資訊站想成一處居所。本次展覽企圖再次示範「大量交織」的概念，藉由臉書社團「大量交織」蒐集來的免費二手家用品，將這個失去用途的資訊站與被拋棄的各種家用品重組為一個二手家屋，企圖探討這個資源滿溢的時代「人」與「居所」的交互關係。
Cupboard House originally served as the “information center” commissioned by the Jut Art Museum in 2016 for its outdoor exhibition Home 2025. This work was taken as an illustrative example of how to substitute “creation” for “design” at that time. By introducing the creative idea of “massively interweaving,” the artist intervened in the production of micro-architecture with the furniture craftsmanship of wooden cupboard, and transmuted the information center per se into an exhibit of the exhibition. In order to dovetail with the theme of “home,” the artist also conceived of the information center as a dwelling. In Project: The Folly, the artist seeks to demonstrate the idea of “massively interweaving” once more. By collecting free second-hand houseware via the eponymous Facebook group, the artist has reconstructed a second-hand house with the abandoned information center and houseware of every stripe, so as to investigate the relationship between “humanity” and “dwelling” in the age of overflowing resources.
藝術家介紹 About the Artist
蕭有志為美國 Cranbrook Academy of Art 建築碩士，現為實踐大學建築設計學系專任助理教授。他長期在方案、教學、創作、非營利工作營、策展及社群經營等方面，同步實踐他所提出的「大量交織」理念，嘗試以微型空間創造做為都市設計的手段，跨方案地連結各種人、事、物等資源，並轉化過剩為養份，將設計力視為主動轉變社會的動能。
Earning his M.Arch. from the Cranbrook Academy of Art, HSIAO Yu-Chih currently teaches as an assistant professor in the Department of Architecture, Shih Chien University. He has long applied his idea of “massively interweaving” to his projects, teaching, creation, non-profit workshop, curatorial practice, and community management. Apart from employing micro-space creation as a means of urban planning to pool all available resources in a cross-project fashion, he also treats the power of design as the proactive momentum for social change, a creative force that transforms surpluses into nutrients.
