Out of context, they’re kind of mysterious and moving, right?

Taiwan Ceramics Residency Program 2013 / Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taipei

Taiwan Ceramics Residency Program 2013 / Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taipei
Applications deadline: March 31, 2013

Residency description
Situated in southwest of Taipei Basin, Yingge is known as Jingdezhen of Taiwan for its plentiful supply of clay, convenient transportation, and various types of kilns. While its neighbor, Sanshia, has a rich cultural heritage, the town is blessed with enchanting historical ambience.

The Yingge Ceramics Museum was opened in 2000. Since then, the museum has dedicated itself to preserving the town’s cultural legacy while instilling new energy into the area. With such conviction, we decide to encourage ceramic artists, both local and foreign, to come experiencing the life in a pottery town through a one-to-three-month short-term residency program.

The residency program is open to both foreign and domestic artists. Interested applicants must have at least two years of experience in ceramic creation.

Residency program is three months in length and takes place from July to November in 2013.

Benefits and Responsibilities
The museum offers each artist in residence:
1) A round-trip travel subsidies (up to the equivalent of high speed rail fare in economy class for domestic travelers/up to the equivalent of international airfare in economy class for international travelers).
2) A daily stipend of NTD$600 (60 USD), which includes income 20% tax withholding (actual NTD$480 per day) up to 90 days.
3) An independent studio apartment, semi-open studio spaces.
4) Basic studio materials needed during the creative process not exceeding NTD$30,000 (1000 USD).

A selection committee composed of relevant experts, scholars, and museum representatives reviews all applicants and decides the final list. A notice will be mailed to all candidates on Apr 15th 2013 after final result is confirmed. The short list of candidates will be posted at the same time on the official website of the museum.

Long before there was the Kindle, there was the 16th-century book wheel by Italian engineer Agostino Ramelli, an ambitious reading “interface” that would allow the reader to browse and reference multiple books.
Complement with other vintage versions of modern social technology, then wash down with 27 of history’s strangest inventions. 

And I think I’ve learned today, through a series of interactions after a very strange set of dreams, vividly remembered (thank you, Sleep Cycle 4.1), that I’m as confident as desire and context require me to be. Timing has always been the issue - either too quick to pounce or too obsessed to finish on schedule - though, I continue to improve. I guess I have the ‘when-they-ask-you-your-weakness’ figured out, but only if I’ve arrived on time for the meeting, probably wouldn’t fly in text.

Petroski: The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic has occasioned considerable reflection on the concepts of technological risk, engineering failure and human tragedy. Are we vulnerable to another massive disaster that could take hundreds or thousands of lives?
