The Dance of Life

This piece is situated on a grassy clearing next to the Chiayi County Children’s Park. The open nature of this site highlights the interaction and integration of the work with the environment, allowing the art to be fully taken in. The overall design echoes the installation project theme: to create an art piece that could replicate the fading memories of a time once passed and express the cultural landscape of Chiayi on this wide grassland. Mysterious in form as ancient elves, the work is also a combination of the human body and the reishi mushroom plant, reminding people to treasure the relationships we maintain between ourselves and culture and nature. We need to sync up the pulse of the earth with that of our daily lives, so that we may finally achieve harmony between culture and ecology.
