“WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?”
“I’M FROM TAIWAN”
“OH! THAT’S WHERE MY TOYS COME FROM.”
These conversations inspire this project, Island of Toys, to reflect ideology, alienation and texture of globalization and capitalization by toys; the native, playful object.Through the journey of those toys, our childhoods date back to the encounter of desire, property, social status and happiness.All in all, toys are us!
“This piece speaks to and for the child within me.” Michelle Sewell, Spill Writer 2016
