On what I walk to see...

"Objects do not have any intrinsic meaning- that meaning is conferred on them by us- and that different people, and the same person at different times, may confer different meanings on the same object." (Hammersley, 1989, p. 135)

富邦金融大樓 Fu-ban Financial building

富邦金融大樓 Fu-ban Financial building is one of the well known modern building in Taipei as per the introductions in the East Metro Mall.

Some pictures I took for the real building on my walk today.


A tribute to da cane de moi

The Lament of da cane de moi... always in the background... even when I intended to have them pictures focused on it once for a change... lol

Though not quite sure who wants to see the close-up pix of my cane but... here they are...

Nou Gallery, Taipei

Further down the road, I came across the exhibition of Li Zhuo in Nou Gallery, Taipei.

First thought that came into my mind...

A people-looking rabbit holding an egg? 8-O

Your belief- Your life.

Insian Gallery, Taipei

Decided to walk into the Insian Gallery on Jen Ai Road today, which I had walked passed by many a time.

Since one of my coworker recently introduced me to this character called "salty egg superman (鹹蛋超人), I thought this might be a variation of salty egg superman without a face or who was having a totally huge yawn....

Ended up, the nice gentleman working in the gallery told me that, this statue represents the "taking off" of 炎黃子孫 and their taking off after all the hardcore leg work after thousands of years...  He also pointed out the legs and showed me how the artist had made it much coarse looking then the rest of the body.

It surely was very interesting to learn about what the artist was trying to convey through his art especially when comparing it to my salty egg interpretation.

At the same time, since I am also one of the yellow people who have been working hard on my leg work... won't be bad to fly for a change... Come to think about it... looking almost like me yawning up a storm...  8-O lol

Following are pictures of some other art works I saw...

Because I wasn't looking into taking to many pictures today, didn't take pictures of the nice art work inside this gallery.  You can find pictures with much better quality in the website of 印象畫廊 InSian Gallery  or, better yet, visiting it yourself shall you be in Taipei.

A new version of Pandora without a box... Abstraction

I came across Pandora without a box as I was strolling up and down the street months back...

Pandora without a box on 1/13/2012

During my walk today, I saw across the street that missing now is Pandora without a box...

In my mind, so I entertained what might be in da mind of some of them passersby... "Why is this woman with a cane taking pictures of da corn thing?"

From now on, this corn shall be pandora without a box? 8-O lol


Like here...

Jen Ai Junior High School

And, there...

遠企中心辦公大樓 Far Eastern Plaza

It was quite a long trip... walking down to see the Far Eastern Plaza (遠企中心辦公大樓).

The reality was that... I remember it to be one of the famous modern building that I was looking for and sort of knew where it was located... Yet, I forgot which building it was and what it was supposed to look like...

En route, I came across this nice looking high-riser... and even went in to visit its washroom... 8-O lol

This is the third tallest building in Taiwan (with 台北101摩天大樓 Taipei World Financial Center the tallest and 新光摩天大樓 Shin Kong Life Tower the second) and designed by the famous architect 李祖原 who also designed Taipei 101.
