人、自然與環境是同在生態循環系統中的生命共同體。這一次我參與了新竹市的「高峰藝術節」計畫,作品位於山坡上充滿綠意的「新竹市立高峰國民小學」內,在校園下方有著荒廢一陣子的生態池,也有著茂密的竹林。


在現地勘查時,校園裡密集種植的樹木吸引了我的目光,使我滿是疑惑,因為這麼密集的種植方式對於樹木的生長是不適宜的。後來經過詢問後才知道原來校園內的許多樹不是原本這片坡地上的樹種,而是從別的地方移植過來這裡種植的,也有些樹種是興建景觀工程時所剩的樹木。但如果不仔細考慮樹種所需的環境的情況下種植,對樹木是種傷害,它自然也無法良好地適應新環境而存活。


於是我有了此次關於移植的作品計畫。我選了一個校園後方的人造自然休憩區作為作品創作的位置,那裡有一棵茂盛的樹與另一棵枯死的樹,恰巧形成強烈生命力與適應力不良的對照。我以校園內生態附近的竹子為材料,藉由水的意象將兩樹相連接而形成一個流動形象的雕塑,並移植該地的草種植在雕塑上方,創造出一道在兩樹之間繞行的漂浮的土地作品,也是兩樹在不同生命歷程之間的對話。

" Meander is necessary to straight, but also a necessary process of river, with explaining the importance of the process from natural phenomena. Land exists among our consciousness, free drift, just as a floating land."

Lee, Kuei-Chih

There are many trees that have been transplanted here for planting, but not every tree can survive very well in different places. This is a man-made natural resting area behind the campus. A lush tree happens to contrast with another dead tree. I connected the two trees by the image of water and transplanted the grass of this place and planted it on the sculpture. It is like a floating land that thinks about the river, and it is also a space for dialogue between the two trees in the process of life.
