With ""the crossover of technologies"" and ""the immersing experience"" in mind, we have meticulously designed the Lantern Fair of Technology for Taiwan's 2018 Lantern Fair in Chiayi in the rectangular basement between Chiayi County Government and Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum. The fair integrates and shows the latest technologies of Industrial Technology Research Institute, technology enterprises, and Institute for Information Industry via multitudinous art pieces and light performances. We invite different teams and ask them to intertwine their creations with local elements so that the entire basement can be transformed into a walk-in installation of lantern. We hope this will bring out the passion of Chiayi County and tantalize people to come back to Chiayi to celebrate Lunar New Year and Lantern Festival.

And compose the light performance with electronic music to present the “rebirth” of the sacred tree after the storm, while leading the people in the technology light area.

Time and Space Corridor Using the local color and landscapes from Chiayi County as material, the design concept of LED lighting inside and outside the corridor is to create a ceremony inviting people to enter the “past, present, and future” of Chiayi County. The structure was made of steel-based and allowed the light to shine perfectly. Cooperate Team | Atelier Neo.E X Fengjia Construction Real X Tainan University of Arts
