WITH THE THEME AGE 26, COLOUR POCKET BOOK PROJECT INVITES PEOPLE IN ANY AGE FROM ANYWHERE TO SHARE THEIR OWN LIFE EXPERIENCE OR DREAM OF THE YEAR BY A COLOUR. AS A WAY TO DESCRIBE A STORY, THE CHOSEN COLOUR WOULD DEFINE SOMEONE’S UNIQUE MEMORY, EXPECTATION, OR THE POSITION JUST IN BETWEEN.

■WHY 26?

26 IS AN AGE THAT LEADS US TO MATURENESS. PEOPLE ON THE AGE MIGHT HAVE SOME EXPERIENCES, HAVE MADE SOME DECISIONS. THEY PROBABLY START TO LIVE IN REALITY AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF THEIR OWN. THEY MIGHT GIVE UP THE DREAM SLIGHTLY, OR PERHAPS, JUST FOUND IT.

IN MY OWN 26, I’D BEEN TO SOMEWHERE FAR AWAY AND EXPERIENCED A LOT OF PRICELESS THINGS. I ENCOUNTERED FOLKS, TRIED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THEM, COLLECTED THEIR STORIES. THE DAYS CHANGED MY LIFE, DUE TO THE REASON I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW WOULD OTHER PEOPLE DEFINE THIS AGE.

■THEN WHY COLOURS?

COLLECTING COLOURS WAS ONLY FOR CHEERING MYSELF UP WHEN EXPERIENCING THE FIRST WHITE WINTER OF MY LIFE IN HELSINKI; MEANWHILE IT WOULD BE A NICE REASON TO FORCE MYSELF TO TALK WITH PEOPLE IN SOMEWHERE UNFAMILIAR. THE TOPIC ASSOCIATED WITH THE AGE 26, THAT I HAVE BEEN EXAMINING AND PROSPECTING AT THE SAME TIME. THUS THE PROJECT WOULD BE ABOUT TIME AND SPACE. THE MORE PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT AGES I MET, THE MORE STORIES ABOUT REMEMBRANCE OR EXPECTATION I GOT IN POCKET.

THIS PROJECT STARTED FROM FINLAND, FEBRUARY 2013. IT HAS BEEN TRAVELING WITH ME THROUGH HELSINKI, OSLO, COPENHAGEN, REYKJAVIK, BERLIN, VENICE, PARIS IN EUROPE, AND THE JOURNEY KEEPS GOING IN MY HOMELAND TAIWAN AND CYBER SPACE. :SURPRISINGLY, OVER 1,200 STORIES RECEIVED SO FAR. INDEED, THE STORIES ARE MOSTLY ABOUT BANAL THINGS HOWEVER CONNECTED TO AN IMPORTANT THING, A BOUNDING RELATIONSHIP OR A DREAM. I THEREFORE REALIZED THAT THE CRUSH AND THE HEARTBREAKING ARE ALWAYS THE SAME IN THE WORLD. SO WE NEED HOPE TO BELIEVE THAT WE DESERVE A BETTER TOMORROW, AND NOTHING'S POINTLESS IN LIFE. I LONG TO BRING BLESSING TO MORE PEOPLE BY SHARING THE GOODNESS ONCE FOUND IN THIS PROJECT.
