"Meander is necessary to straight, but also a necessary process of the river."
After every twist and turn, we will find an even more beautiful scenery.
Songshan Community is located in New Taipei City’s Shimen District. In the mountains of the valley, there is a terrace formed by the winding mountains. It is a crystallization of wisdom from our ancestors, and also the best proof of human coexisting with nature. Under the soft breeze, the curved bamboo symbolizes the most important stream of water here. The writings on the bamboo carry the local people’s stories and visions. The scattered sound of music flows between this mountain land.
"Songshan Bamboo meander" is a piece in the "Meander" series. I used mountains, water and wind three natural elements responded the cultural landscape of water terraces in the mountain. A river constituted by the bamboo flows in the land where is surrounded by terraces. It is the water vein in this mountain, and dragon vein also.
The mountain breeze blows on to the scattered bamboo, and that sounds like an ancient ritual performed. It transferred the wishes and the stories by wind, lead us into the nature’s recollection. A quiet dialogue space between human and nature.
