Project Details

Description

The aim of the paper is to search and re-search the “fragmented totality” of Taipei as a living city for all which is ironically “extra-ordinary” and “extraordinary”. The foci of analysis, accordingly, is shifted from “sight-seeing” to “life-surfing” in the tradition of human geography by extending the theoretical grounds from regional/neo-regional studies to post regional studies and from the terroir of places to the neo-terroir of cities. In doing so, the fieldwork strategy of “city lohas” which combines “life-surfing” and “street cruising” in association with the street observations of Japanese modernology is adopted to echo Highmore’s theoretical framework of aesthetics, archives, and practice/critique so as to highlight the spatial ethnography of urban dynamics in daily Taipei. Hopefully, the preliminary findings of this paper will provide some useful clues for the pursuit of a living city for happily all.
