Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

NTCTCPS is the North District in Taichung. There are many cultural resources near the school, not only close to the historical attractions of the old city, but also very close to the cultural and creative park, cultural center, art museum, and science museum. To the west, there are also creative business districts such as Caowudao and Audit Village. Taichung is a city full of art and creative culture. Professionals in each industry take root and sprout among alleys. Maybe all the way around, professionals and industries have become places to practice their dreams through art and living practice. This year, the real seed planters went into the seed design of Taichung North District. A temperature-filled design studio, where a solar-energy food and beverage research room is set up, allowing designers to approach the land through the practice of life, let the design enter people's vision and diet, and focus on nature. The maintenance of ecology not only allows each worker to give play to their expertise here, but also the ideas they pass on have reached the contribution of giving back to society.

2. Summary of Our Project

The word '?' also means Satoyama, Seed Design is a design studio that conveys food culture and environmental issues through text and graphic design. Especially in recent years, they have paid more attention to the protection of Asakusa and living in the city. The text and images in books are always full of their ideals and feelings for the land. Because we want to understand the seasonal diet, we have read the book of seed design, and also entered the field investigation of the vegetable market, imitating the spirit of seed design, we understand the diet, life, and nature through our own inquiry. Relationship. We actually visited the solar design laboratory of seed design, learned the concept of seed design studio, interviewed the employees, learned the reasons why designers like working in seed design so much, and understood that seed design is planning Painting and research topics. Understanding the meaning of career and dedication, we imitated the entrepreneurial spirit of seed design. We personally tried to observe, draw and taste seasonal vegetables in different seasons. We also went back and looked for the diet story of our family. Visiting the elders about family In the past, the recipes common on the table also interviewed experts in agriculture and ecology to focus on ecological issues through diet.

At the end of the semester, 'Zhi Li Xing Jian' held seasonal, seasonal drinking, and practical promotion activities. An exhibition sharing meeting was held in the school library. Students were also recommended books about seed design and publication. Good book recommendations for buying new books. Through the introduction and sharing, the teachers and students in the school better understand the importance of seasonal diet. We have also tried to use the method of graphic creation to design posters for our exhibition. We also passed many ideas and ideas about land and friendly planting through our words and images to more people.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Technical obstacles: Because our webpage is not good enough in coding experience and skills, making webpages and typesetting is more difficult, so we first use a computer to complete the text, and use ppt to typeset our graphics, and organize the photos we have taken. Then, please ask the teacher to help you put the content that needs to be put into the process, and also try to practice using simple programs to paste text and insert pictures. Team communication / cooperation division: At the beginning of the semester, when we knew that we had been selected as a member of the Cyber World Expo team, the teacher had told us that the next 10 team members must cooperate fully and each of them had to show their expertise. To assist and complete this research project, the teacher let us work together in the form of senior sisters and younger sisters. At the beginning, the senior sisters were not effective in guiding the younger sisters because we were too anxious! We always think that the younger sisters react Not fast enough, but after the guidance of the teacher, the teacher asked us to think about the last year when we did special research, we usually check in those places and asked us to patience to explain a few more times. Later, we may get along for a long time, we slowly understand each other Teachers often ask us to record in the exclusive notebook of the blog, and then make a statement one by one, so that when we next time forget where we are talking about As long as we open the notebook, we can see the detailed records at that time. Progress control: Although each of our activities is roughly planned at the beginning of the period, because many students need tuition during the holidays, sometimes the teacher hopes that we can use the holidays to go to school to organize the materials of the Internet Expo. If students ca n’t come to the school, we must use them. At other times, I use the cloud drive or e-mail to communicate with each other. Although …

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Because I really like the related works published by Seed Design, I have the opportunity to visit this local design studio and learn about their concepts of food and ecological promotion in their works. I also see a friendly working environment, not just Talking on paper, the brothers and sisters in the studio use their expertise to start from the diet and take readers to see those cultural and ecological issues that need our attention. We also tasted the whole thing in the solar design laboratory of seed design. Seasonal hot orange drinks, food, and Xianfeng grass rice porridge combined with diet design. The diet story is presented on the food through design. These are things we have never seen before, and through the five senses, we are also fascinated by these novelties. Things attract, seed design is more like the Satoyama spirit that we want to convey from Hayao Miyazaki's animation discussion animation, which prompts us to want to understand more about these repercussions …

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

Because of the opportunity to visit the Seed Design Studio, we learned the idea of ??the founder, Ms. Keping Ke, who believes that everyone has their own family food story. From the past to the present, those who follow the seasons and different tastes The scenery of the dining table, 'Taste of Life' made Miss Ke Ping decide to enter the catering service design. 'Determined to do a commission for each small restaurant and small brand. After winning every small battle, she can win the battle in China and the big battle. ' When we visited Aunt Ke Ping, we were moved by her to gather the beauty of Taiwan ’s agriculture. She also let us know from her reflection on many current situations. She told us that “co-construction with the environment is friendliness.” Therefore, eating this thing, Of course, from your own perspective, you understand what you need, and you will know how we should be friendly to the environment in order to respond to our physical needs. Therefore, starting from this idea, we also deeply understand the diets that we usually pay attention to , Looking back for our own family's food story, and also understand why planting in a friendly environment is important, and through what we have seen, curated an exhibition in the school, combined with seed-designed books, organized a line of words in the library -Special exhibition of seasonal, seasonal drink and practice. I hope to pass on our perspective to convey the impact and action of seed design. I also hope to start with diet and let everyone pay attention to the environment and ecology. The seed is spread to every teacher and student in the school, and I hope that they will bring this seed and affect the people around them, Let us be a forest that guards Taiwan's agriculture and food culture.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?


     Self shooting & web reference In the process of research, we mostly use digital cameras to take pictures. In addition to querying related information, we will quote online photos. We will also explain the source of the citation. The teacher told us      The photo involves the right to portrait, so we will ask the interviewee to sign the interview consent before the interview, which explains our application of the interview content     And asking respondents to authorize us to post their photos on the web.

     Each interview will be recorded with a voice recorder. Prior to the interview, we will also ask the interviewees for their consent and explain the purpose of our recording file before recording.

Text information:

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

Seed design In every diet design proposal, no matter it is tea, the original wild vegetable culture, or the local seasonal diet, they will infiltrate the environment in the countryside, observe, draw, record, cook, eat, Therefore, we also learn the spirit of seed design. To understand what we eat, the most important thing is to enter the vegetable market. Unexpectedly, after entering the market, we really encountered some problems of the current Taiwan diet. For the first time, We found several interesting and investigable phenomena in market research: 1. Now you have everything you want to eat all year round 2. What would happen if the land only planted things we could handle or love to eat because of consumer preferences? 3. Starting from ourselves, exploring the recipes of our family and understanding the family's diet stories, we only know the simple life in the past and can also create such rich dishes that reflect the taste of the land 4. Beginning with the dialogue between the seed design company and us, we also developed a sense of problem ourselves, interviewed experts in agriculture and ecology, and better understood the various issues on the land that need our attention before we knew about friendly farming, which not only allowed us to Eating healthier food is the maintenance of the whole nature. Human beings should use their own wisdom to adapt to the environment, rather than the entire nature to adapt to us. 5. We also personally experience every seasonal vegetable and fruit, observe, draw, record and even taste the original taste of food, which is a sensory special experience for us, and also let us know that the food itself has its own flavor and flavor The data seems to be a bit redundant.
