極限島

“The newborn island lying in the ocean. A trace that has been forgotten.”
The topic of this work is assigned as “extreme”, it describes the powerful energy which is hidden in the island. The inhabitant of the island is like the flying butterflies flapping wings, assembling the fragmentary breeze, brewing a larger storm.
The overall design is mainly made with high transparency material, reappearing the intimate relationship between “island” and “the ocean”. The island appears a “鯤(kun)” wearing a green veil on its head, roaming through the oceans with all kinds of living beings. The audience feels like surrounded by the ocean tides, walking through the pulse of water ripple. In the flowing water reflection, the viewer can gaze on their silhouette vanishing into the ocean wave, wandering through the affectionate embrace of the ocean.

This is the special feature of an island ---- With “extreme” power, generating the characteristic of “inclusiveness” --- Also, this is always its most charming spirit, the devoutest tenderness. “Flapping butterfly wings in the breeze, Roaming “鯤(kun)” in the ocean at ease. ”


※鯤(kun) – legendary giant fish that cloud fly and transform into a giant bird.

仰躺於汪洋的新生島嶼,一抹不被惦記的痕跡。

「蝶翩揚風旋,鯤伏震海波。」


此作品以「極限」為命題,刻劃海島蘊藏的強大能量。島人猶如飛舞的群蝶,翩翻揮動翅膀,聚集起離散的微風,蓄積一場更加巨大的風暴。整體設計以「高通透」的回收材質為主,重現「島嶼」與「海水」密切的關係。
