Project type: Solo project.
'What's The Point?' is an ongoing, participatory, Taipei based project which aims to reconsider our life in a sense of the things that we take for granted by doing fieldwork, discussing what effective/ineffective communication could be, and thinking about how human behaviour affects our society and environment. Using Design Thinking as an approach to provide better solutions to social and environmental problems, and rethink these issues around our lives by engaging and empowering the general public. Everyone can be a facilitator in making the world a better place.
It is interesting to observe the things around us. Albert Einstein once said, “If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” That is, if you can find the problem, you are already half way to solving it.
ISSUES FOR DISCUSSION:
These include: What kind of rights people have as residents, whether community bulletin boards can deliver information effectively, the roles of community centres, the reasons for the decline of community centres, solutions to the waste of hardware and software resources.
