2020 Taiwan Design Expo'20 - The Terminal

2020 台灣設計展-城市終端機

穿越日常,登入數位時空

Traversing through daily life, logging into a digital time and space

終端機,是輸入與輸出的裝置,也是人與數位世界對接的窗口。

如果城市是一座大型的機器,那一定會有核心處理器,2020台灣設計展主展場城市終端機,翻轉新竹市立體育館成為一座數位基地,將乘載新竹記憶的東城門化成光點訊號,匯入城市資料庫,將新竹的生活場景與數位時空交疊,引領每一個人看見終端機的運作脈絡,共同創造一個乘載理想生活的動態城市。

A terminal is an input and output device as well as a window that connects people to the digital world.

Welcome to the City Terminal. The 2020 Taiwan Design Expo has transformed Hsinchu Municipal Stadium into a digital base.  Embodying the memories of historic Hsinchu, the East City Gate is converted into signals composed of light spots that are uploaded into the City Database, interweaving Hsinchu’s scenes of daily life with a digital time and space.  The project guides everyone to see the operational context of the Terminal and work with the Hsinchu Monster to create a dynamic system conveying an ideal lifestyle.

一日生活掃描機 A Day in the Life of a Scanner

從早晨睜開眼開始,數據便環繞在我們身邊,如果用資訊量計算,現代人每一天都與數百億位元共處,包含藉由網路與世界連動的資訊傳輸量,以及所吸收的資訊儲存量。走進新竹日常,跟著世代都生活在舊城的老新竹人、在竹科工作的新興年輕家庭、回到新竹創業的青年,以資訊基本單位「位元」的視角,重新觀看新竹人的一天。

We are surrounded by data the moment we open our eyes every morning. Based on information quantity, it can be calculated that modern people coexist with tens of billions of bits every day, including the data transmission connecting us to the world via the Internet and the amount of data we absorb and put into storage. Enter the daily life of residents at Hsinchu.  Join long-time residents who have lived in the old towns of Hsinchu for generations along with newer families working at Hsinchu Science Park and young returning entrepreneurs. From the perspective of a “byte”, the basic unit of information, re-explore a day in the life of Hsinchu residents.

▩ 科技時代大事記 Chronicle of the Technological Age

新竹從半導體產業出發,與世界的科技產品發展相互牽引,全世界第一套學生宿舍光纖網路,就在新竹大學城裡誕生,連第一套符合國際標準的5G核心網路軟體,也在今年出現在新竹城市中。回頭盤點一個個網路事件,都與台灣、新竹的發展脈絡相連,在每一個時代顛覆我們的生活。原來這些科技事,與我有關、與你有關,也與城市發展有關。

Beginning with the semiconductor industry, Hsinchu has played an integral role in technical product development for the entire world. The first-ever fiber optic network for a student dormitory was set up in a Hsinchu university town. Even the first set of international standards for 5G core Internet software also came from Hsinchu City. Looking back, each and every major Internet-related event can all be linked to the developmental context of Hsinchu and Taiwan, disrupting our lives across every era. It turns out these technical matters are related to me, you, and urban development.

▩ 數據下的新竹 Hsinchu as seen through data

從國家的開放資料庫中挖掘新竹數據,發現新竹市不只是個年輕、收入高、文化內涵豐富的「風城」,更是一個收入與支出都傲視全台的「峰城」、也是一個擁有自己獨特行為與消費習慣的「瘋城」。剖析新竹的數據,就像與城市的深度交流,用不同角度認識切入,看見其獨一無二的個性。

According to data on Hsinchu from the publicly accessible national database, Hsinchu, the “Wind City”, was found to have a younger population with high income and rich culture. It is also a “Crown City”, where income and expenditure top other cities in Taiwan, as well as a “Wild City”, where people’s behavior and purchasing habits are unique. Dissecting Hsinchu’s data is like communicating in-depth with the city while getting to know different facets of the city from a different perspective and seeing its one and only personality.

▩ 數位世界傳送門 Portal to the Digital World

透過人們的手機介面,就像看見他們以什麼樣的角色登入數位世界,跟他們的工作、興趣、在乎的事緊緊相連。其實所有的科技都建立在人的需求上,這些看似遙遠的科技與技術,其實比想像的都近,而通往這個世界的傳送門,就在我們每個人的手中。

Through cell phone interfaces, it is possible to observe what roles people play to enter the digital world, which is closely linked to their work, hobbies, and issues they care most about. In fact, all these technologies are built on top of human needs. Distant technologies and skills are actually much closer than you can imagine, and the portal to this digital world is in our hands.

▩ 生活後台數據庫 Background Database for Life

在數位世界,每一筆買賣交易,都不再只是購買商品或服務的行為,更是連結了全世界的物流、金流、喜好與消費習慣,從所挑選的所有商品中,就能形塑出你的樣子,還有你與世界的關聯。不只購物,生活中食衣住行育樂的每個行為,在數據世代中也都有了新的定義。

In the digital world, every transaction is no longer simply an act of buying goods or services, but also a connection to logistics, cash flows, preferences, and consumption habits around the world. You shape your appearance and connection to the world merely by the products you select. In addition to your purchases, there is a new definition in the era of data for every behavior in life, including food, clothing, housing, transportation, education and entertainment.

▩ 走進新竹終端機 Walk into Hsinchu Terminal

隨著氣候細節變化、城市生活的軌跡,以及每個人對城市的想望,資料不斷更新與傳遞,隨著數據一起進入城市的核心處理器,經過一系列演算工序,輸出成現在城市的樣貌。游走在其中的此時此刻,我們也正在成為被記錄的數據,養成一個有機的城市。

Monitoring climate change details, trajectories of urban life, and everyone’s expectations for the city, the data is updated and transmitted continuously. Entering the core processor of the city, the data undergoes a series of algorithms and calculations, and the resulting output becomes the city’s current format. At this moment as we meander within, we also become recorded data to feed an organic city.

▩ 新竹獸登入城市 Hsinchu Monster Logs into the City

城市蒐集著每個人的聲音與期待,再把能量傳送到城市各個角落,化為新竹獸的四肢與觸角,帶著大眾的想法成長、蔓延、突破城市現有的框架與邊界。跟著新竹獸從異質空間回到原本的新竹生活場景,想像與城市一起共創的未來。

The city collects everyone’s voice and expectations before transmitting the energy to every corner of the city, transforming into the limbs and tentacles of the Hsinchu Monster. The monster carries the ideas of the public and grows, spreads out, and breaks the existing framework and boundaries of the city. Following the Hsinchu Monster to return from a heterogeneous space to the original scenes of Hsinchu life, imaginations come together to create the city’s future.
