『龍』在中國文化傳統裡頭代表著祈福、順遂與平安。在南臺灣駐村期間,對於『龍』的神話與其間接對於人產生的內在寄託與引響感觸許多,尤其在莫拉克水災(八八水災)過後。
這原是片沙灘,後來因為人工築堤的關係改變了海水流向而成了礫石海灘,我想或許真的需要『龍』了吧!
這是條從海灘上充滿故事的樹頭開始往海裡蜿蜒的一條巨龍。它的出現是為當地祈福與祝禱還是對人類行為的控訴而臥倒在這呢?

Dragon represents blessing, smoothness and safety in Chinese culture.

In the past legends, people believed that the dragon can control the water and weather.

During my stay in southern Taiwan village, I was hugely inspired by the myths of dragon and its indirect influence on people’s inner expectations, especially after the Typhoon Morakot(88 Flood).
This place was originally a sandy beach, then turning out to be a gravel beach due to the artificial dike which has changed the flow of sea water. Perhaps, it really needed a dragon to do so.
This is a huge dragon created from a story-telling tree root which wound all the way to the sea. Was its appearance means praying and blessing for the locale, or it was laid to protest against human’s acts?
