This critical design project researches the context and historical significance of Fort Zeelandia, Dutch Formosa (nowadays Taiwan). In the form of an educational toy, research zine, and interactive website, this project reveals how colonial dominance was represented through brick(laying).
Agency of Brick(laying)
How history can be taught through material and/or artefacts? Two prototype series were made as a way of sorting out the geopolitical development of Ford Zeelandia since Dutch Formosa. In combination with artistic reinterpretations of both visual elements and historical archives, the results of the critical-making process can be seen as constructivist pedagogical props - internally and publicly.
