Moving from Austin to a tidy and traditional corner of New Taipei City, I felt inclined for the first couple of months to be a part of the district's culture, rather than to confront them with mine. I wanted to feel less American and more local, but in doing so, I was creating friction between how I knew to express myself, and how I thought I was supposed to be communicating. In the end, finding something between both of my culturesand letting stares be stares fit most comfortably.
One step away from their punchy neighbors, these pinks, reds, and off-blues dress down a stare for all it really is; eye contact. Wide strokes and thin lines use flat, dry layers to get the point across.
