“Island’s Whisper” is a poster series focused on raising awareness of the environmental issues in Taiwan, by visualizing a variety of concerns the local communities are facing on a daily basis. The posters showcase the beauty of traditional Chinese characters -- the form and pronunciation -- which emphasize on 17 different environmental issues in many counties across the island. Each font represents a unique personality that strives to remind people of those forgotten lessons.
The interactive feature provides a channel that allows the audience to connect with the Taiwanese soil by experiencing “sun”, “rain”, and “dust” through tearing, pasting, pressing, and illuminating the posters. Comparing the before-and-after results will create a better, deeper understanding of the causes of environmental issues in Taiwan.
