In the work Mind Map, Kuo I-Chen builds on a foundation of old aerial landscape photographs of Taipei and creates simulations of natural or man-made environments using reclaimed bottles and cans, sampling fabric, and various fabric scraps and waste materials from the manufacturing process. The installation’s focal point is an antique sewing machine positioned to correspond with the Tamsui River estuary, the recycled fabric symbolizes the flowing river that moves toward Taipei in counter-current, alluding to the memories that flow through different eras. Using materials provided on-site, audience members can mark a location of their own within the map; a location that carries an important personal memory, or a spiritual home within the city. This Mind Map is completed through the participation of the audience.
