The IDA Congress is the primary event for dialogue between designers and non-design stakeholders in a summit format. The 2011 IDA Congress marks the alliance’s inaugural event since its establishment in 2005. Taipei was selected as the host city after an international competitive bid process.
Exhibitors of the 2011 Taipei Design Expo cover 55 enterprises, 50 design studios, 26 design schools, and 43 design promoting organizations from 18 countries, including Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Thailand, China, USA, UK, France, Holland, German, and Russia. The Exhibitions are held in SongShan Cultural & Creative Park(09/30~10/30), Nangang Exhibition Hall(10/22~10/30), TWTC Exhibition Hall 1(10/22~10/30).
The Trip View Bowl has a mission given by the 2011 Taipei world expo to make “the Design at the edges” commemorative bowl, it takes about 1 year and more than 6 hundreds people to finish the mission— these trip view bowls will be given as a gift to the three thousands guests, and we hope these bowls could become the common collection cherished by all the top designers attending.
This delicate articraft, designed and produced by the Trip View Bowl, has been recorded in “Full Record of making Songshan Creative & Cultural Park bird’s eye view map” , and they use a movie “The Edge” to express it. I can’t wait to participate this “creation” after I saw their fantastic work, so I use my Google earth application skill to perform “the Confrontation between trip view bowl and Google earth in Taipei”.
This work contains mainly about two part:
The bird’s eye view image of “Trip View Bowl” is actually half of earth surface. It can be transformed into a half sphere panorama map. Then we can use GE PhotoOverlay. After zoom-in, we can see it very clearly the original photo just has the same resolution as the 12cm-in-diameter blue and white porcelain bowl, and 600 designers hide in it.
The second part take me lots of efforts : I made a movie with 37 seconds music, I put the blue and white porcelain bowl on the ground in the original size. It started to become bigger and bigger, up and up, eventually it achieve 120 meters above. And it began to spin, then we fly into the bowl, fly to the sky of Taiwan, we rocket to the outside of the planet earth , the universe. This blue and white porcelain bowl keep going up, enlarge itself, and it “hold” our beautiful planet — earth, put the earth into the bowl. What next, the earth rotate inside of the bowl. Finally , we go back to Songshan Creative & Cultural Park, fly along the bowl’s edge, and the background is the mapping landscape of Taipei .
At last, the expo and the exhibition will exploded a bomb of design in a few days, I hope everyone saw this work can join this great show of combination with all the creative designers, together we will make the world better and “speak” our voice loud. Thanks for your time and really wish you like it.
