My name is Hsieh Yi Yi, I graduated from the School of Archaeology and Museology, Peking University. My research topics focused on archaeological in-situ preservation and heritage studies. Relevant fieldwork experiences including archaeological caves preservation evaluation in Guizhou, City archaeology in Jinan, Shandong, and South-Silk Road Investigation in Yunnan Province.
From the academical training, I am capable of working in a high-pressure and detail-driven working environment and competent in communicating and negotiating among different interest groups. During the field investigation, our team managed to investigate 50 different prehistoric caves (with average height 200m above the sea level) within one month, conducting evaluations including the surrounding landscape, cave geomorphology, and its GIS coordinator and orientation. While in Yunan south silk-road fieldwork, our team accomplished connecting dots from documentation at least 5k ancient trading route, showcasing the result by recording each GIS coordinator and map it onto Google Earth Satellite map.
Outside the academic environment, I acquire the ability to analyze and prioritize the project goals, managing the time as well as the quality of the outcome. As a project coordinator in Tainan Municipal Administration of Cultural Heritage, my main responsibility is to negotiate with different interest groups such as the Bureau of Culture Affairs, the proprietors, and the architects to maximize the renovation work that fulfils the policy and the ability to reuse. The experience in the museum allowed me to learn the organization of educational activity and the organizing procedure for an exhibition; I've organized 2 educational summer camps for high school students, and one exhibition presenting the Indonesian culture.
It is from the experience in the museum that I come to realize the space design and the power it can bring to an event or an exhibition. It is also the experience that reminds me although I know how to find the right topic and content for an exhibition, I still need to know how to empower my ideas and impress the audience through the space design. Since then I've been training myself with the ability to drawing and design in terms of interior design and space design. I just attended the certification of interior design in October and still waiting for the result. But since I got the technique and skills of design and drawing, I am ready to devote myself into the field of exhibition design, and plan to participate the basic design for 2-4 years; after this stage, I plan to move onto the management work and further on establishing my personal studio.
Competent in history and archaeology research, have a good commend in using relevant research methodologies and strategies.
Being able to analyze and evaluate the core value, igniting the speed of communication and the project procedures.
Familiarized in governmental construction procedures, and able to practice each regulation and procedure independently.
Arrange procurement schedule, editing project proposal and budget control.
Museum summer camp for high school students to taste the work of archaeology, museology and conservation work.
Students focusing on getting to know the basic terms of archaeological terminology in English. Not only the basic knowledge, the understanding of archaeological equipment is essential to conduct a good research. Professional archaeologists from Academia Sinica are invited to give lectures on topics across the archaeological disciplines.
The project had been suspended for a year when I took over the responsibility of this project; the main reason lied in the manufacturing and quality issues. After 6 months of intense communication and on-site checking, the artwork finally stands on its feet in the center of the park.
The roof broke after the heavy rain caused by the typhoon. Foreseeable danger required the immediate restoration, so we applied the governmental emergency budget and got it done within 3 weeks.
Complex propriety rights and fragile structures, in addition to the rigorous heritage policies, the work required intensive communications with the architects, the owners, and our team members.
The former military club consists of three main buildings that now submerged by the surrounding residents. The current stage is finding the solution for adaptive reuse so the heritage could be preserved while slow down the deterioration.
To be a certified Interior Designer in Taiwan, it is necessary to practice a lot on the ability to hand drawing the architectural plan, the two-perspective drawing and the sectional drawing of furnitures.
