b. 1978 Miaoli City, Taiwan Fang-Yi Yang(Fay) was born in Miaoli City, Taiwan. She received her BA from Ming Chuan University, TW and MA from Anglia Ruskin University, UK. Fay cares about how the plastic products affect our lives. Her practices reflect on comparison between new and old, convenient and unreachable. She develops the workshop of plastic bag weaving to reuse the material and encourage people not to use it. We always heard that someday the plastic bottles will be more than fish, but we cannot imagine. What if someday there are no wood and no other materials but only plastic around? Our ancestors can live without “convenience” while we are addicted to it nowadays. Fay would like to understand more living style in the old days and do the comparison. She now focus on a weaving project which to invite participants to bring a small furniture or object that probably isn’t needed anymore and cover it all around with plastic bag by weaving. Weaving is an old, gentle, generous skill that can make you calm and make your mind clear. Weaving is not just an action, but also a process of thinking and discussing, binding the ideas together, experiencing the past, the present and the future.
