The "Haiwan Xincheng" located by the sea in the Shimen District of New Taipei City has suffered serious damage to the buildings following the long-term erosion of the northeast monsoon. In 2021, the Urban and Rural Development Bureau of the New Taipei City Government have worked with community residents to improve the environment. In addition to remove the messy bamboo forests in front of it, they also worked with an artist to create a recreational park called "Bamboo Nest of the Bay".
I used bamboo as the material for this work. In addition to responding to the original bamboo forest on site, I have also woven bamboo into a streamlined sculpture, corresponding to the ocean ahead. The bird’s-eye view of the work is like a comma (，) in Chinese punctuation mark, which indirectly shows that environmental work is a continuous and uninterrupted process, and also symbolizes the spirit of the residents of the Haiwan Xincheng to continuously improve the overall environment.
