我們都是在自然的庇佑下生活著。


過去曾髒亂不堪的大漢溪河濱地,現在已轉變成淨化汙水與生態棲地復育的人工濕地。此濕地除了有處理民生排放的汙水與淨化大漢溪水質及改善生態環境的功能之外,在枯水期時,還能補充河川水量、維持河川生態的功能,也是民眾賞景遊憩的地方。在此濕地裡有許多水生的植物與人工荷花池,也間接呼應了濕地內自然植物的淨水功能。

因此,我選擇了一處位於荷花池旁的地方作為作品的基地,以荷葉的形狀結合水生植物的維管束特徵,創造一個在濕地間的雕塑,並名為「荷居」。它是結合了現代工業科技和自然生態智慧的作品,也是一件工業文明在自然之間的交會的作品。我使用雷射切割的科技技術在鐵板上製作了一張有著植物細胞的荷葉形狀的椅子,並採集了竹子、芒草、構樹皮、落葵薯、苧麻繩等自然材料編織出另一片荷葉形狀的雕塑。作品由這2片荷葉形狀的雕塑組成,在這個淨水、賞景與休憩的人工濕地環境中提供了遮蔭與乘坐的功能,也以此作品回應都市中的休閒觀光發展與自然在土地上共生的風景。

“We all live under the protection of nature.”


The Dahan River Riverfront, which was once messy in the past, has been transformed into a artificial wetland for sewage purification and ecological habitat restoration now. In addition to processing sewage from the city, purifying the water quality of the Dahan River and improving the ecological environment, this wetland can also supplement the river's water during the dry season and maintain the river's ecology . It is also a place for people to enjoy the scenery and relaxing. There are many aquatic plants and artificial lotus ponds in this wetland, which indirectly echo the water purification function of natural plants in the wetland.


Therefore, I chose a place next to the lotus pond as the base of the work, and combined the shape of the lotus leaf with the vascular characteristics of aquatic plants to create a sculpture in the wetland, and named it "Living with lotus".

It is a work that combines with the modern industrial technology and natural ecological wisdom and also a work where industrial civilization meets nature.

I used the technology of laser cutting to make a lotus leaf-shaped chair with plant cells on the iron plate, and collected natural materials such as Bamboo, Chinese silver grass, Paper mulberry bark, Anredera cordifolia, Ramie rope to weave another piece of sculpture with the lotus leaf's shape. The work is composed of these two lotus leaf-shaped sculptures and provides the shade and sitting functions in this artificial wetland environment that has the water purification, scenery viewing and rest area. It also responds the symbiosis with the urban leisure tourism industry and nature.
