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 shape 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 the 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 remind us of the impermanence and the sublime transformations of this place.
