Living with Gods
In Chinese religion gods will bless you if you show your profound respect and devotion. However, today we are no longer familiar with these gods’ identities or what they stand for. Which god is in charge of your hair cut? Which god takes responsibility for your social media activities? This project combines the ancient meaning of specific gods with contemporary life in Taiwan. The author translated the concept of gods to everyday activities in his life. The “gods’ job descriptions” may have changed but they are still willing to help people who worship them with sincerely.
