the art piece by ling-li tseng is made of 200 local cedar lumber pieces arranged in the shape of a parabolic wave. three sets of modules repeated as a coiled installation illustrate the contour surface risen from the ground. this artwork symbolizes the power of the earth and sea waves, while a touch of sacredness is sensed when walking into the inner space.
a series of light beams are placed between the gaps directed upwards, creating an interesting play in light and shadow. they are visible when raising the head and go through the openings with the smell of wooden aroma. this astonishing contrast effect is unveiled in between brightness and shadow and can be clearly noticeable during nighttime, where interesting reflections are shaped on the surrounding water.
