作品說明:

此作品位於宜蘭縣的冬山河親水公園,這裡過去常因大雨或颱風侵台而氾濫成災,後來在經過已故前宜蘭縣長陳定南進行整治之後,原本髒臭且易氾濫的冬山河,現在已成為宜蘭最具代表性的河川,而「冬山河親水公園」則成為宜蘭重要的觀光景點。因此,我以水連結著當地的過去歷史,並使用漣漪的意象在這片大地上,泛起人與自然和諧的平衡關係。


迷宮在人類歷史中存在已久,比如希臘神話的克里特迷宮(the Cretan Maze)、古埃及巨大的地下迷宮、澳洲最古老的阿什科姆樹籬迷宮(Ashcombe Maze)、中國山東的八卦陣迷宮等。許多國家都有著引人入勝的迷宮的歷史。而迷宮有著Labyrinth和Maze的不同,Labyrinth的迷宮設計只有一條到達中心的路徑。Maze的迷宮設計則可以選擇不同的路徑與方向,有著多重路徑可抵達中心,也是較複雜的設計。此作我使用Maze的迷宮設計,並結合著水的漣漪的意象,將之名為「漣漪迷宮」,英文名則是「Ripple Maze」。我們的生命與思想像水一樣地流轉,不是為了尋求一條對的路徑。相反的,每一次的路徑都是一段特別的經歷。我將水那偶然與流變的特質對應著我們生命中探索、選擇與決定的歷程。


作品結合著「水」和「迷宮」兩個概念,以自然細微的物理狀態放大作為表現的形式,人在進入這巨大的自然雕塑作品中,改變了以往的觀展經驗,看見許多不同的路徑卻看不見作品的全貌,就如同遠眺一座山與進入山中的視野與狀態不同,重要的並不在登頂征服一座山,而是享受在過程中的風景,與自然一起成長的經驗,覺察我們的生活與和自然相互的關係。

Work conception

The maze is a kind of adventure for exploring the life route, however, "The Ripple maze" is more like a big theater of human beings and the nature.

Therefore, the artwork combines two concepts and image of water and maze. It reinterprets life by chance and rheology and expresses my own natural experiences of poetic images.

The ripples as the work's formula in the vast grass slope of Dongshan River Ecoark. In the form of bamboo shed to build the Ripple Maze, but also a natural playground in order to respond to the importance of water in all things, but also correspondings to the Dongshan train station’s melon shed the image. It’s really different visions and status between overlooking a mountain and into the mountains, our path of choice and the dimension of thoughts are like as the flow of water. Every path is a special experience in the maze, and at any time composing the drama between the human and nature.

Each Land artwork is a co-working creation of the people and nature, then we work with the mother land to condense the crystallization. The works are expressed in the form of natural subtle physical states, and emphasizing the natural forces are naturally everywhere. The land artwork brings us not only visual experiences, but also leads us into the experience and aware of our lives.
