Here are some topics, definitions, and links (I got these links by typing “connectedness” into Google. You can also click on images in Google and see what comes up!) to help us brainstorm our projects related to the theme CONNECTEDNESS. My first language is English and my Chinese still sucks, so it’s all in English. My friend translated “Connectedness” for me into Chinese as 連通, 連接, or 有關聯的。
Here are ALL the translations I found in the online translator I used:
通, 接, 串, 搭, 繫, 紹, 交接, 接軌, 綴, 接通, 聯姻, 連接至, 聯接, 搭接, 交結, 縶, 搭咕
There are MANY MANY ways to interperet the theme - have fun! 加油! Jia1 you2!
Here are just some words/ ideas that came to my mind:
(I tried to translate them into Chinese. Please let me know if they don’t make sense;)
History - Present
Roots, Rivers, Veins/ Artieries/ Lungs/ Pipes etc.
Health - Well-being
Physics - matter, energy, motion, and force
Gravity - Moon phases - Tides
重力 ﹣月相 ﹣海潮
Industrial & Organic
Body - Mind - Spirit
精神，神，靈魂 ﹣形神 ﹣心 ﹣腦子

I am an illustrator from Taiwan. I currently live with my family. In 2004, I made an informed decision to pursue a career in illustration and to become actively involved in exhibitions. I love watching movies, writing, reading, and listening to music. I jog regularly because it makes me feel revitalized and relaxed. I desire making meaningful accomplishments in life through all my endeavors in illustration.
