Walk a Mile in my Shoes

BY CHRIS MAHER

This incredible talk is about a man's path to enlightment and empathy via the shoes on his feet, and those purchased along the way.  A tale of fetish and frienships that ask us all to cosider how we treat others, a true reminder of what it is to be humane.

國際策展人、創業家、《Taiwan by Design》作者


易安妮來自澳洲,長期關注藝術、科技與當代議題,多年來累積世界各地的生活經驗,對她來說,台灣就像是個親切的朋友。從收到一個青花瓷製的「趣遊碗」後,安妮開始深入了解臺灣文化並希望將青花瓷的美麗分享到全世界,之後便開始《Taiwan by Design》的計劃,彙整出 100 個有代表性的產品並訪談設計師,一路上充滿許多挑戰,但她仍跨越重重困難完成這項計畫。安妮笑著說:「當我隨著夢想努力時,所有的「不可能」,都成為了可能。」

International curator, Entrepreneur, 《Taiwan by Design》Author


Hailing from Australia, Annie is an award-winning curator working with art, technology, and contemporary issues. With many years of experience in different locations around the world, Annie is now a dear friend of Taiwan. She became deeply involved in Taiwanese culture after receiving a “Trip View Bowl” as gift. She thought that the blue-and-white porcelain bowl was beautiful but it needed someone to tell its story to global audiences. Soon after, Annie started a major book project to find 100 iconic products and interview the designers. Many challenges were on the way but she was brave and motivated to finish the work. Annie says: When I follow my dream, I see “impossible” as “I’m possible”.
