「氣候驟變是人類21世紀的挑戰。」

地圖上的藍色蜿蜒的線條連接著不同的地方與文化,也刻劃著河流與其文明的秘密。大漢溪是孕育桃園台地的母親河,且桃園市大溪區緊鄰著大漢溪,早期因為河運發達為而成為北台灣重要的港口,也是當時復興區的木材輸出門戶。

古希臘哲學家泰勒斯(Thales,624 B.C.-546 B.C.)提到「水是萬物之本源」,在東方文化裡也常見老子(約 500 B.C.)與莊子(476 B.C.–221 B.C.)以水喻道的哲學。人類文化的起源與「水」是分不開的。「與河共生」的生活方式孕育出了許多的物種與棲地,也進而發展出了許多與自然平衡的生態智慧。除此之外,符號圖像是人類認識世界最初的溝通方式,而「雲」是自然界中的大氣現象,也是水在空中的載體,是水循環中的重要一環。雲紋的符號也廣泛出現在古代遺址與廟宇之中,有著尊重自然與生態永續的象徵意義。

此作品位於桃園市大溪區的大漢溪旁的草坪。我以流線的雕塑形體呼應著地圖上這條蜿蜒的河流,創造出一個雲紋符號的雕塑。

「雲」作品在大地上傳遞著天上的訊息,回應我們對自然的崇敬信仰並連繫著水與人類的關係。作品材料上使用木材與竹子,除了呼應過去這裡木材輸出的歷史之外,使用著對環境友善的有機材料來建立「碳匯」,以抵消現今無法避免的碳排放。而「雲」的符號雕塑形成的巨大迷宮,除了是遊憩的空間之外,也意指著「尋找」的行為,在雲中尋找出一個人類與天地之間平衡的生活方式。

「雲」作品將天上的符號置於大地上,以低碳的方式創造出一個與自然共生的棲地空間,在回應自然宇宙觀的同時也成為了人類敬重天地的象徵。

“2022 Taoyuan Land Art Festival-River flows, City vibes”


"The sudden climate change is the challenge of human beings in the 21st century."


The blue meandering lines on the map connect different places and cultures, and also depict the secrets of rivers and their civilizations. Dahan River is the mother river that nurtured Taoyuan Terrace, and the Daxi District of Taoyuan City is adjacent to Dahan River. It used to be an important port in northern Taiwan due to the development of river transport, and it was also the timber export gateway of the Fuxing District at that time.

The ancient Greek philosopher Thales (624 B.C.-546 B.C.) mentioned that "water is the source of all things". In Chinese culture, Laozi (about 500 B.C.) and Zhuangzi (476 B.C.–221 B.C.) often use water as a metaphor for Taoism philosophy. The origin of human culture is inseparable from "water". The lifestyle of "symbiosis with the river" has given birth to many species and habitats, and has also developed a lot of ecological wisdom in balance with nature. In addition, symbolic images are the initial communication method for humans to understand the world, and "clouds" are atmospheric phenomena in nature, the water carrier in the air, and an important part of the water cycle. The symbol of cloud pattern is also widely found in ancient ruins and temples, which has the symbolic meaning of respecting nature and ecological sustainability.

This work is located on the lawn next to the Dahan River in Daxi District, Taoyuan City. I echo the meandering river on the map with a streamlined sculptural form, creating a sculpture of cloud symbol here. The "Cloud" work conveys the message of heaven on the earth, respond to our reverence and belief in nature and connect the relationship between water and human beings. The main materials of the work are fir and bamboo. In addition to echoing the history of wood output here in the past, use organic materials to build "Carbon sinks" to offset today's unavoidable carbon emissions.The huge maze formed by the symbolic sculpture of the "cloud", in addition to the space for recreation, also means "looking for" behavior, finding a balanced lifestyle between humans and earth in the cloud.

he "Cloud" works place symbols from the sky on the earth, creating a habitat space that coexists with nature in a low-carbon way. While responding to the natural cosmology, it has also become a symbol of human respect for nature.
