On the white sandy beach of Haikou Village on the border between the mountain and the sea. The strong downhill wind is a special weather phenomenon caused by the terrain here. The plants and natural landscape here adapt and generate its special shapes due to long-term strong winds and the shape of the sand dunes will change by the circulation of the four seasons. Therefore, in the early days it was called "Little Sahara Desert", but now the desert landscape is gone. Because of this special geographical background change, I named the work "The Dream Land of Wind", and uses natural sculptures to respond to the unique weather phenomenon of downhill wind and the romantic natural landscape of the Haikou Village in the past.

The work is made of bamboo and shapes build based on the wind's direction and located on the beach that has been hit by the downhill wind for a long time. It is a long natural sculpture in strings shape as the wind and waves. The sculptures uplifted like marine creatures on the sand respond to the past dune landscape, and also symbolize the habitat space of marine and terrestrial creatures. As the downhill wind blows every day, the accumulated sand gradually integrates the work into the natural landscape, presenting the constantly changing and slowly forming process scenery of the sand dunes, and also forming a dynamic sculpture that changes with the natural energy. Through the work and the strong natural energy here, with the sound of the waves, we enter the desert illusion in memory and the dreamland in imagination.

2020 屏東落山風藝術季


台灣南部恆春半島入口的海口港從每年10月開始,因為來自太平洋吹拂而來的強勁風勢與地形的關係,而有著特殊的落山風天氣現象。也為恆春半島形塑出其特有的人文、地理與自然環境。

在這山與海交界的海口村白淨沙灘上,這裡的植物與天然地景因為長期強風的吹襲而適應,且生成其特殊的形態,沙丘的形狀也因四季的流轉而有所變化。因此,在早期曾有著「小撒哈拉沙漠」之稱謂,但現在沙漠景觀已不復見。也因為此特殊的地理背景的轉變,我將作品名為「風之夢土」,以自然雕塑回應此地特有的落山風天氣現象與過去海口村浪漫的自然景觀。


作品的造型依風走勢,以竹子構成,裝置在這長期受落山風吹襲的沙灘上。它是一個長形且有著風與浪流線的自然雕塑,在沙地上像是海洋生物般隆起的雕塑造型回應著過去的沙丘景觀,也象徵著海洋與陸地生物的棲地空間。隨著每天落山風的吹襲,堆積的沙逐漸將作品融入此自然地景當中,呈現沙丘那不斷變化且慢慢形成的過程風景,也將作品形成了一座隨著自然能量變化著的動態雕塑。透過作品與這裡強烈的自然的能量,隨著海浪的聲響進入那記憶中的沙漠幻象,與那想像中的夢土。
