“Ordinary Household” is a project dedicated to the domestic approach which is somehow almost absent in Taiwanese photography.
Artist seeks for volunteers, goes to their houses, askes for their ideas about the most “often”, “want” and “unforgettable” things to do in their houses, and take pictures. In other words, sitters are “acting” themselves in their most familiar and comfortable environment.
