Flip Kinmen, Peace forever 翻轉金門,和平永存

Kinmen Poster Competition 

 

There are two ways to look at this poster. From the upright side, soldiers point their guns to each other; Cannons also against each other, which represent all the wars had happened in Kinmen. Flip 180 degrees to another side, it becomes the community of Kinmen. The famous Juguang Tower and Wind Lion God are the Spirit of Kinmen. The action of flipping the poster upside down represents the power of people in Kinmen, turned the war to peace. There are also two ways to look at the title “金門” and “和平”, from the upright side, means “Kinmen”; upside down, means “Peace”, connecting to the graphics.

此海報有兩種觀看方式,正面看為軍人互相拿槍指著彼此,大砲相對,紀錄著金門經歷的大小戰役。翻180度,從另一角度看,是金門人建立的家園,著名的莒光樓和風獅爺,為金門人的精神象徵。從看海報這個翻轉的過程,也象徵著靠著人的力量,將戰爭翻轉為和平。本海報標題也有兩種看法,正面看為「金門」,反面看為「和平」,與畫面相呼應。
