吳孝儒,父親是道地南投民間的閩南人,母親是道地花蓮玉里的客家人,我流著兩種民族的血液,我是個本土道地的新生”混血兒”。

本設計概念來自於父母親各自的民族背景,借由照鏡子這項概念來重新認識自己。我們所居住的台灣歷經了荷蘭殖民、鄭成功、清朝、日據時代、一直到中國政府撤退來台。台灣這塊小島有著各式各樣豐富的民族文化,因其不同背景與生活習慣與好幾百年的演變與融合,這些特殊的文化風貌也以經漸漸的融入了你我的生活中。

本設計提出”客閩混血”的這項概念,試圖找尋著埋藏於自己血液裡文化,右側(碗公)代表個性爽朗的父親,也是標準閩南人好客喜愛熱鬧的豪爽表象,而左側代表著標準儉樸客家人的母親,斜角的碗能夠讓食物簡易的填滿,但又不失待客禮貌的儉樸個性。

閩客混血這個概念藉由自己,影射這兩個民族從古至今共處於這塊土地的情感,也是代表了自己與新一代台灣民族的混血與新生。

I’m Pili Wu, I was born to a Nantou Hoklo father and a Hualien Hakka mother, I have two different bloodlines running through me, I’m a new local “hybrid”.

This design was inspired by my parents different backgrounds, getting to know ourselves once again through the mirror concept. Taiwan has been ruled by the Dutch, Koxinga, the Qing dynasty, the Japanese and the Nationalist Chinese, this small island has witnessed changes and integration of various cultures through the years, the ultimate melting pot that has resulted in our modern daily life.
The concept evolved around the combination of Hakka and Hoklo cultures, it’s a form of self- exploration of my own cultural identity. The big bowl on the right represent the bold and straightforward characteristic of my father, a very open and inviting figure, and the slanted bowl on the left is symbolic of my mother, whose frugal and humble nature resembles that of the Hakka people.

The Local Hybrid concept is my personal interpretation of the embodiment of these two groups of people, who have been on this island for hundreds of year, as well as the mixing and birth of the new generation of Taiwan.
