Through multiple perspectives of the “boat” and the extended meanings of the “boat”, those are metaphors that the Hakka group has developed profoundly throughout Taiwan.
Ninety boats are sailing, winding and stretching among the century-old trees. The precious historical patterns on the boats travel through time and space. They give the participants several layers of memories and accumulations. The participants can take a walk freely and discover this artwork ( The Hakka Culture & History, this big Banyan tree with rich history…). The participants will find different surprises and presentations through different kinds of perspectives of the work.
Thus, they become an integral part of this installation.
