2008 臺灣國際學生創意設計大賽

Encourage international creative design exchange, develop creative design talents, express the international image of Taiwan attaching great importance to creative design, and establish the international design status of Taiwan.

Eastern/Western, Traditional/Modern, Global/Local, Exquisite/Mundane, Inside/Outside, Ahead/Behind…

These are the dichotomies that frame our perceptions of the world. We can break through these lines of demarcation and definition, although it takes great fortitude to live in such uncertainty.

In Chinese, there is a word “Chu Ju” (出入). This word is most commonly translated as discrepancy, inconsistency or uncertainty. Yet “Chu Ju” means, most literally, “In/Out”. It is the concept of simultaneously coming and going. It is a paradox; one that exists even though the laws of reason state that it cannot.

For the 2008 Taiwan International Design Competition, we invite you to explore the contradictions that arise from the word “Chu Ju”. As you explore this concept, don’t look for truth, but instead seek inspiration in the face of uncertainty.
