The Museum strives to uphold Fu Ssu-nien’s, founding director of the Institute, appeals to “seek out materials from the Heavens above to the Yellow Springs, or underworld, below.” With this encouragement in mind, we exhibit the original forms and historical contexts of unearthed cultural relics, and centered on the academic achievements of the variety of disciplines here at the Institute, design exhibitions that seek to present the profound cultural meanings of the objects.
Within the continuous dialogues between museum and artifact, the cultural relic, aside from being the focal point on display, inspires the aesthetics, designs, and experiences concerning the promotion of education as well as cultural and creative development of the Museum. Moreover, owing to the participation of and interaction with the museum visitor, the dimensionality evoked by the object leads to forms of multidimensional thinking and energy.
This exhibition situates the above aesthetics, design, thinking, experience, and energy as its five core themes, demonstrating the inspiration—and its operation—found within historical objects of differing categories. Finally, an interactive “reimagining the future of MIHP” guides us in carrying on the past while also heralding the future, as well as taking our hand in discovering the Museum’s many possibilities.
