作品概念:

2017年時我參與了南韓昌寧郡的「UPO濕地生態體驗公園」人工溼地舉辦的第一屆的「2017 UPO自然藝術節」,主題為「自然遊樂園」。我在溼地內的香蒲叢裡創造了「香蒲螺旋」作品。詮釋著生命螺旋運動的過程,作品融入濕地中成為環境的一部分,並隨著四季變化著不同的風景。2019年時此活動再次舉辦,我再度受邀參與了「2019 Upo自然藝術節」。這次的主題不受限。我思考著濕地在生態系統裡的角色與功能。

濕地、森林與海洋為地球的三大生態系統。濕地有防洪、保水、淨水與改變地球微氣候的重要功能,也是許多魚類、甲殼類、鳥類及其他野生動物的棲息地。是維護生物多樣性的關鍵角色。而在現今氣候變遷的環境之下更是需要有與整體環境相關連的流域系統觀念。於是我創造了「水的守護」作品,選擇了位於濕地溝渠邊的位置,使用當地的樹枝集合成一個有著內外空間的自然雕塑。就像是地球的雙手一樣從土地上升起創造這個棲地,並守護著我們的環境,也訴說著自然的生態平衡是很精緻而脆弱的。

Work conception:

Wetlands, forests and oceans are the three major ecosystems of the earth. Wetlands have important functions of flood control, water retention, water purification and changing the microclimate of the earth. They are also habitats for many fish, crustaceans, birds and other wild animals. In today's climate change environment, the concept of a watershed system is needed, which is related to the overall environment. Human beings are part of the ecological cycle chain, and our habitat and survival depend on the overall environment.

This work I use water as the image, installed in the wetland environment. Water is like the hands of the earth, creating habitat and guarding our environment. At the same time, it is said that the natural ecological balance is very delicate and fragile.
