理念 | Statement
社子島多年飽受淹水之苦,卻也形塑社區高度防災韌性,以及人與人之間共患難、相互扶持的鄰里情誼。燈塔造型傳遞藝術家感受到的社子島人生,一種屹立不搖、苦難中仍冀望光明的堅韌與相濡以沫的人性光輝。

Shezi suffers from constant floods for years. Meanwhile, it shapes the highly resilient community and makes the villagers share weal. The lighthouse structure transmits the life in Shezi which impressed the artist. It symbolizes a shining light of humanity with mutual support.
