作品說明:

          水滋養萬物,而萬物像水一樣流轉。

          作品概念來自於當地的湧泉歷史,而那被掩蓋的聲音,如地下蓄積已久竄出的泉水,在這殘破的面頰上湧出,流淌在這冰冷的土地上。這是自然的規律,也是我們生活的真實反應。

          作品位於花蓮市的閒置空間與豐濱鄉的磯崎海灘,並與這裡山的現況相呼應。在這城市荒廢地裡,我們可以閱讀到它如湧泉一樣有著此曾在的過去事實,看見過去這裡生活過的痕跡,並能夠感覺到那經時間刷洗過的歷史陳舊味。作品由當地回收的生活物件所構成,並置入當地居民談論水的記憶的聲音與其自身故事的聲響裝置。它是個的不流動、如被棄置的水泥塊一樣死寂的湧泉雕塑。每一個物件都承載著我們日常生活與生命歷程的共同記憶,伴隨者此起彼落的記憶聲響,猶如一個不在場的環境宣言,也是人類消費社會下的直接證據。

我們看見了一個平和、簡單的圓形地景作品在花蓮的海邊。它就像是個火山口,我們能夠想像著部落狼煙傳遞著訊息,跟湧泉一樣有股巨大的能量在地底,正等待著釋放的那一刻。它也是某種自然精神性形象的揭示,就像是一個沒有起點與終點的循環鏈與生活哲思。

此作以水徑訴說我們的環境議題。水從山上流向城市,最後流向大海。 因此,我創造了兩件作品,即花蓮市閒置空間的水泉雕塑裝置藝術作品,以及磯崎海灘的大地藝術作品,並回應了亞洲水泥公司在新城山挖掘巨坑的事實與許多該地的環境議題。試圖描繪我們現在所處環境的真實面貌。

作品名為「水哪裡去了?」,一方面回應當地曾經存在的自然資源,另外,也試圖藉由水的路徑來回看我們這塊土地,這座山與這片海域。由水脈的自然規律訴說著這塊土地上的故事。看見漫流於時間長河中也無法沖淡的歷史事實。

Work conception:

Water nourishes everything, and everything flows like water.

The concept of the work comes from the local history of the water springs. The sound of the water be covered, it just like the water accumulation underground for long time and sprang out in this broken cheek gushing, and flowing in this cold land. This is the natural order and the real reaction of our life.

The works are located the unused space in the Hualien city and the Jici Beach in the Fengbin Township, Hualien County and echoes the status of the mountain here. In this unused space, we can read the past facts that it used to exist, as was the same as the water springs. We could see the traces of the past life here, and feel that time scrubbing the history of the old taste. The work is constructing by the local recycled living objects, and set the sound device that the local residents talk about their memories of the water and their own stories. It is a kind of no flow, such as abandoned the cement block as deadly rock sculpture. Each object is carrying our daily life and life history of the common memory, and accompanied by the memories of the sounds around here, like an absence of environmental declaration, but also direct evidence of human consumption society.

We saw a peaceful and simple circle of the Land art work at the Hualien beach. It looks like a crater, we could imagine the smoke of the tribe to convey the message. It also with the same huge energy as the water spring under the ground and waiting for the release of the moment. It is kind of the reveal the natural spiritual image too, and like a circuital chain which is without starting and ending, and life philosophy.

This work uses the water path talking about our environment issue. Water flows from the mountain to the city and finally flows to the sea. Therefore, I create two pieces of work which are the water springs outdoor sculpture installation art in the unused place in the Hualien city and the land art work on the Jici Beach and try to echo the fact that is the Asia Cement Corporation dig the giant pit in the Xin-Cheng Mountain and many local environmental issue. Trying to depicting the true face of the environment in which we are now.

The work called "Where is the water flowing?" It responds to the local existence of natural resources, in addition, also tried to look back our city, the mountain and the sea with the water path. By the natural order of the water tell the story of the land. See the historical facts flow in the long river of time but can’t dilute.
