Through the fusion of love and life as the starting point, various creative works are extended out from dialogues with life.
Happy Taxicabs is a project in conjunction with the taxi company, and has transformed a familiar mode of transportation into a nostalgic ride. Upon sitting in a Happy Taxicab, you will hear classic old songs, and the blissful message board inside the cab welcomes anyone to leave a message for your friend or be pleasantly surprised to find a message that was left for you. When getting out of the cab, you will receive a blissful receipt from the driver in six different versions of Luck, Peace, Health, Diligence, Perseverance, and Wellbeing. Each receipt will have on it a touching short story to fill your heart with blissful happiness.
Chen once again uses push pins, and attempts to develop a three dimensional work from his past two dimensional work. By layering and using multiple combinations, a hypnotizing group of cacti seems to have emerged from the illusive desert, and the shimmer from the push pins gives a mirage-like temporary optical illusion, and an alternative visual experience is presented.
The “Objects” guide us to trace back to the first mode of communication for man-kind, the imageries. The written languages of man-kind have derived from images, and in the beginning, each image represents a certain meaning, and it is deciphered by the communal experiences and memories that the community holds together.
