理念 | Statement
The idea is to create a wing inspired by dragonfly wings. As this wing has an inner structure with a transparent layer, the artist has the imagination that this structure could be pathways and roads, almost a man-made landscape of pathways crisscrossing. The visitors shall discover a dragonfly wing and by coming closer realize a map of roads, ponds, and houses as the structure of the wing. The geography of the Park may be found on the wing as well.
The piece will raise attention to the dragonflies, one of the remarkable insects linked to the local environment and an indicator of water quality. The dragonflies and the rice paddies always have a kind of partnership.
