Modern industrial civilization has changed our life style and the natural environment for good. The scenery of the beautiful landscape is fading. The noise of traffic replaces birds’ chirping and frogs’ croaking in our memories. In search of the sound of the childhood memory, I delve into the light and the noise produced by the mechanical equipment of industrial civilization, trying to recreate the trees’ shadow in moonlight which used to shelter my sweet dreams.

Unlike my previous works featuring high-tech methods, recently I am more interested in highlighting the handmade quality of technological art through low-tech skills. I intentionally choose those daily materials common in Kaohsiung to recall the natural scenery of the city in my memories. The beautiful landscape and the sound of Nature are created artificially to emphasize the irony that humans, without any vision, keep destroying the precious natural environment to pursue industrial development and technological civilization.
