Step 1: 發想`;Concept

(一)發想

春節到了,這是一個屬於華夏民族特有的節慶,而在台灣大家更習慣說“過年”,今年文創造團隊已年獸與鞭炮為主題。

在傳說中“年”是一種在深海裡的怪獸,每隔364天就會醒來一次,並且到岸上吃人,所以每到這一天人們都會攜家帶眷的躲到山上去避難。

直到一位神仙告訴人們,年獸最怕的就是噪音跟紅色,從此人們便在這一天放鞭炮貼春聯,來把年獸嚇跑。

Chinese New Year Project(一)

ConceptSpring Festival (a.k.a. Chinese New Year) is a unique festival for all Chinese nations. It can also be called "Guonian" in Taiwan, which means the passing of the old year to a new one. According to tales and legends, “Nian” is a monster in the deep sea, waking up every 364 days, and eating people on the shore. On this day, people bring their family into the mountains to take refuge.
Until a immortal revealed that the most feared of Nian is the noise and red color, people started to put firecrackers and buy many red items as red clothes, red lanterns, red paper-cuttings, red spring couplets, and all manner of red objects to scare Nian away.
