12生肖是我們華人對應計算時間的一個重要象徵,於1970年代出土的秦代文獻《睡虎地秦簡》和《放馬灘秦簡》,其中已用動物與地支相配,和如今的生肖差別很小,大部份的動物都已經相同。遠在好幾千年前我們就使用這套系統,在我們的日常中運作,日漸的融入生活的文化裡。可謂是傳統,也能算是我們獨有文化的一環。還記得小時候爸媽教我們數生肖,說生肖故事,每個動物的個性刻劃的玲琍盡致。因為如此,我們開始使用生肖來作為計算時節的好方法(當然上面的故事為教育之用途,實際上12生肖的由來出處也很多。)生肖的一輪周期為12年。人的歲數等於12的倍數稱為本命年。另外,由於地支的周期也為12年,與「生肖」首尾完全對應,本命年也可以認為「地支」周期的倍數,老一輩的人都是這麼樣計算度日的。因此,那麼有趣的東西,我希望透過現代設計注入極簡的語彙與手法,來重新詮釋這一個有趣的故事,此外,也將台灣老鼠牌重新設計(就是把50年前的老桌遊重新翻新)藉此除了希望古今既往的文化時空上的交流之外,探討是否有太多的文化從我們身旁逝去,但我們卻汲汲營營於當下卻渾然不知呢?也許身為一個設計師,能將自己的所能與長才,應用在更多這樣的角落,或許幫這些地方點盞燈,加些煤火,雖微不足道,但從交流中互相學習,我們也能謙卑的繼續感受這些偉大。
 
12 Chinese zodiac is our important symbol corresponding to a computation time, in the 1970s unearthed Qin literature "Shuihudi Jane" and "Fangma Qin Jian", which has been used animals and Earthly Branches match, and today's zodiac difference small, most of the animals have been the same. Far thousands of years ago we use the system, in our daily life functioning, growing integration in the cultural life. Can be described as traditional, it can be regarded as part of our unique culture. Remember when parents teach us to number our Lunar New Year, Lunar New Year, said the story, each animal's personality Li Ling scored every minute. Because of this, we began to use the Lunar New Year as a good way to calculate the season (of course, for the purposes of the story above education, in fact, the origin of the source of the 12 zodiac lot.) Round zodiac cycle of 12 years. Person's age is equal to a multiple of 12 is called the birth year. Further, since the Earthly Branches cycle is 12 years, and "Zodiac" inclusive correspond exactly, can also be considered a multiple birth year "Earthly Branches" cycle, older people are not so kind to calculate degree days.Thus, the interesting thing, I want to inject a minimalist vocabulary and techniques through modern design to reinterpret this an interesting story, in addition, Taiwan will also be redesigned mouse cards (that is, the old board game 50 years ago refurbished ) whereby in addition to hope beyond time and space and cultural exchange on the ancient past, to explore whether there are too many cultural gone from our side, but we are engrossed camp at the moment are unaware of it? Perhaps as a designer, can their best and long before, more such applications in the corner, perhaps with the help of the local point lights, add some coals, although insignificant, but the exchange of learning from each other, we also You can continue to experience these great humility.
