3-Dimentional Art History

One of the most interesting presentation of art history I have seen in recent memory is the Museum of Taipei University of Education‘s modern art timeline.

Basically, they have a linear timeline, interspersed with artist’s names. Walking through the timeline, you can see replicas of the artworks.

This approach basically gives a visual feel of the movements. It also gives a three-dimensional analysis of their modern art history, cluing in on how certain artists and they work may have related to one another at certain periods.

Walking through the exhibition feels like walking through a story of their art. On the floor, once can see moments certain moments of their history that are related to the work. The problem is that it is in Chinese, a script that I can’t read. But for locals, this information must be invaluable.

The space also includes the nature outside, giving a breathable feel while going around the exhibition. You do not feel suffocated as you try to make sense of their art history. It is quite a journey.

You can also view the exhibition from above, again lending itself well to analysis of their modern art movement.

There are also replicas of sculpture on the second level space. This exhibit also shows the value of replicas. Though devoid of “aura”, such replicas are not so sensitive to human exposure. It can be touched and breathed on, without fear of contamination. It gives itself to experience and is free to be used unique ways without fear.

Little one really loves her broccoli! So funny! She loves her fruits and vegetables snacks. If you want to try this, better be prepared, coz she likes feeding us whatever it is that she's eating. So no cringing! We actually like broccolli so its fine when she wants us to take a bite. We keep a big bag of frozen broccoli so we just steam some for her if we're out of ideas for food. Toddlers can be sooo challenging, but they do have their adorable moments. #babyfood #babynarratives
Cheesy tomato pasta. Yum! We've been feeding little one pasta and she loves it! So happy, we get to mostly eat a lot of the same things. And we're so proud when she habitually rejects the kiddie spaghetti that's usually available for parties. I really do not like the kiddie spaghetti version with canned tomato sauce and hotdogs. Just no. So we just keep on feeding her the different pasta dishes we do like and hope for the best. #babyfood #babynarratives
Little one did not like the lemon snaps at all. More for me! Lol. So far, this is the only cookie that works for her, very subtle flavor. Also works to pacify her when you ate her leftover pasta coz you think she was done, then she comes back looking for her pasta. Uh-oh. #babyfood #babynarratives
Walking with the not so little one. Summer is sooo not our friend. But we try to go out and be cool about it. #babynarratives
Taste testing cookies and biscuits that I can let the little one eat with her whole milk. This one is ok, though might still be a tad sweet. The Cadia vanilla wafers are better and not too sweet, but pricier. Any suggestions for toddler treats and/or emergency munchies? #babyfood #babynarratives
Today is the last day of Leia's Infant Development Program. What a year it has been. We are so thankful to have this community, this family, in the first year of Leia's life. They've been there with us in the rollercoaster of infancy. Leia blossomed in the program as she got used to other people and other babies. So young and already so many friends. This was our village for the past year and I am more grateful than I could ever express. Our babies are now toddlers are we are just so proud of their journey. We will see you all again soon, we feel so lucky to have this love and support. #babyschool #babynarratives
