這片土地在地殼變動與海水上升中,海岸線逐漸退縮。金崙大橋在海邊畫出一道筆直的線條,而通往沙灘的涵洞也儼然成了自然與文明的結界。地貌與社會結構的改變也造就了不同以往的人文風景。

作品位於台東縣太麻里鄉的金崙海灘。這是一處山和海之間、自然與文明的交界位置。在這北回歸線以南的熱帶氣候土地上,熾熱的陽光召喚出活耀的生命力,也是賞旭日的所在。許多民族因地球運行的方向而對「日出」有著相關的神話與傳說,而大麻里的排灣部落又名為 “kacedas”,原意是 「太陽升起的地方」,且排灣族人也有著「太陽之子」的稱謂。

排灣族人擅長使用環境裡的自然資源來生活,獨特與著名的石板屋建築即是其生活與環境結合的生態智慧結晶之一。在石板屋內老人家則透過天窗的光來結繩以記日,在排灣語言中對於天數的計算則是以太陽經過的次數來計算。這種以太陽為核心的生活方式是一種與天地相應生活態度。此外,排灣族人也常使用紋樣與圖騰符號來標示家族和對生活進行記錄。

地景藝術是環境在人意識介入後的雕塑延伸。因此,在這海灘上我以當地的砂石創造了一道猶如從土地上升的月弧狀雕塑,並將排灣族人豐富的圖騰進行轉化設計後,將圖樣表現在雕塑上。鋼筋材料在我過去的作品中是承載自然物的結構物,是被包覆的。如今我使用它來製作這個有著精神圖騰的容器,裝載著此地的自然。它猶如一個裁剪後巨大的編織布帶,也是裝載著此海灘上石頭的巨大容器。

在雕塑的上方我設計了一個圓形的窗口,它延伸了空間,也是使我們更容易感受時間與看見萬物變化的視窗,而月與日的造型則呼應著宇宙運行的法則,回應自然的核心與地球的脈動。

The coastline of the land has gradually reduced due to the changes in the movement of earth's crust and the rise of the sea. Jinlun Bridge draws a straight line on the beach, and the culvert leading to the beach has become a boundary of nature and civilization. The changes in landforms and social structure have also created the humanistic landscapes that different from the past.

The work is located in Jinlun Beach in Taimali Township, Taitung County. This is the border between mountains and sea, nature and civilization. The land of the tropical climate in the south of the Tropic of Cancer here, the hot sun summons the vitality of living, and it is also a place to watch the sunrise. Many nations have related myths and legends for "sunrise" due to the direction of the earth's operation, and the Paiwan tribe of Taimali also known as "Kacedas", that originally meant is "where the sun rises", and the Paiwan people also have the name of "the son of the sun". The Paiwan people are good at using the natural resources in the environment to live. Unique and the famous stone -slab house architecture is one of the ecological wisdom crystals that combine their lives and the environment. In the stone -slab house, the elderly people use the light of the dormer to knot the rope to record the day, and the calculation of the number of days in Paiwan language is calculated based on the number of the sun passed. This kind of lifestyle with the sun as the core is a corresponding attitude to the sky and the earth. In addition, Paiwan people often use tattoos and totem symbols to indicate family and life records.

Land art is an extension of the sculpture of the environment after human consciousness intervention. Therefore, on this beach, I used the sand and stones of this place to create a moon arc -shaped sculpture like rising from the land, and created the pattern on the sculpture after transforming the rich totem of Paiwan people. Rebar material in my past works are the structures that carry natural objects, which are hidden materials be covered. Now I use it to make this container with a spiritual totem, loading the nature of the place. It is like a huge woven belt after cutting, and it is also a huge container loaded with stones on the beach.

Above the sculpture, I designed a round window. It extends the space, which makes it easier for us to feel the time and see the all things change. The shape of the Moon and the Sun echoes the laws of the universe, responding to the core of nature and the pulse of the earth.
