In 1997, my hometown which was agricultural land , built a 2,255-hectare industrial district through land reclamation.
In 2019, My Mobile Farm took 2,255 square meters of soil from my hometown, and plated seasonal vegetables and fruits in it . It is just like the most popular food delivery service recently , only that the backseat does not carry delicatessen, but fresh vegetables, fulfill the concept of " delivered directly from the place of origin “. Also, delivery the entire "vegetable garden" to your home. My Mobile Farm will march forward along this road , there’s no destination for the moment , but home will always be my a point of departure .
Through the use of a movable garden mounted on the back of his motorcycle, Lin Yu-Sheng seeks to bring attention to environmental issues and explore the relationship between humans, land, and food. By planting vegetables from his hometown of Yunlin, Taiwan, on the garden and riding through the city, he hopes to prompt viewers to rethink the sources of their food and the relationship between urban and rural cultures.
The project also highlights the impact of modern consumption habits, where food is produced in various regions and transported to cities, leading to energy consumption and environmental pollution. The use of a movable garden and motorcycle in this project illustrates the relationship between urban and rural areas, reminding people of the importance of agricultural culture and life while raising awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues in rural areas.
Overall, Lin Yu-Sheng's project aims to explore the relationship between food sources, environmental issues, urban and rural cultures, and the importance of environmental protection and sustainable development.
