Project Description: In her early ages, she strived for living for many years in Taipei. However, she could not get used to the busy lifestyle in Taipei. Then, she decided to return to Pitou, Guanmiao, which was her hometown, to open a workshop. The workshop was named “A Single Flower”. Furthermore, she collaborated with a group of hot-spirited young people and initiated a youth studio in Guanmiao. We give our job and our future is determined by us. This is a story about a bold teenager from Guanmiao, and his name is Di Wei, Hsu. Every decision he made was originated from Guanmiao. Why did he do that? Guanmiao, Tainan is a hometown for pineapple, and its production is nearly the top in Taiwan. Not only pineapple can be edible, but the fiber of it also has numerous usages. Di Wei, Hsu, a young artist from Guanmiao, tried to use the fiber of pineapple to make paper or fabrics (clothes, or hat, etc.). They hope it can promote pineapple industry with more diversified culture perspectives, so that the hometown of pineapple will be known for more people.
