Sun of the Dunes, 2023. Metal, fabric, and tinsel. Zhuangwei Sand Dunes Ecological Park, Yilan County, Taiwan. 14m(L) X 14m(W) X 4m(H). Zhuangwei Living Arts Festival.

​The sea breeze is always present in the Zhuangwei dunes. Here, the wind from the mountains met the wind breeze from the sea and shaped the landscape continuously. In the dunes the only constant is change.

“The Sun of the Dunes” is a representation of a star within a star surrounded by 6 smaller suns. The nucleus is made with fabric and tinsel and moves continuously with the wind. The sculpture makes visible the path and intensity of the winds at this location. It reminds us of the impermanence and the sublime transformations of this place.

All the fabric is repurposed material donated by Yee Chain International Co.
