"Tales from Beneath the Arches is a visual exploration of the relationship between the people who inhabit Taiwanese cities and the infrastructure of cities. As the Taiwanese economy grew in the 1980s, the need to easily connect urban centers became on an urgent matter. This led to an explosion in the construction of elevated highways that today wind through their cities, forming neighborhoods and communities in their image. Tales from Beneath the Arches is the visual exploration of the symbiotic relationship that has developed between roads and those directly affected by their construction.
The location of elevated roads in urban centers has been strongly criticized in the West in recent years. Jane Jacobs' opposition to the construction of the Manhattan Freeway through Greenwich Village is perhaps the best illustration of the prevailing sentiment that such infrastructure has the power to dehumanize and destroy communities. In Taiwan, these areas have been humanized by people's interactions with spaces, developed out of absolute necessity in one of the densest countries in the world.
Those who live in those areas often have no say in where such roads will be built. Instead, communities strive to adapt by reusing surrounding land to meet their needs. As cars and trucks close overhead, traveling from city to city, the people below rearrange their world accordingly. "
