As being a youngster born after the age of “Made in Taiwan,” my impression about “Made in Taiwan” stays at the legend of being involved in manufacture industry can get rich overnight. I could no longer reach those low quality, rough, cheap Made in Taiwan products that were sold worldwide as the time I grew up. Nor couldn’t I get the embarrassed but funny and weird feeling of the teasing in 1987’s Hollywood movie “Fatal Attraction,” when the main character broke his umbrella and being asked: “Made in Taiwan?”
I grew up in a time when “Made in China” replaced “Made in Taiwan” and became the factory of the world. On the other hand, “Made in Taiwan” products started to represent high quality boutique. There always are made in India traditional manufactories. Not until the policy “Make in India” does the logo “Made in India” start to go around the global brand manufactories.
In this work, I bought a cloth that is made in India from international brand GAP shop in Delhi, and use its price tag as a standard. I collect the same value items with “Made in India” logo on it, from India, cheap and huge amount of faucets to complete the installation.
