PARASITIC BEAUTY


- Visiting the Parasitic Subculture in Taiwan



I lived above a Taiwanese temple in New Taipei City. This religion has become parasitic within cities due to urban renewal, and its cultural importance has been marginalized by the mainstream culture and younger generation. Fascinated by Fu-Lu, the Taiwanese temple amulet used to pray for good luck or to ward off evil spirits, I drew social awareness of this subculture by interpreting its elegant structure and mysterious significance.
