竹、回收塑膠袋或衣物、鐵絲(或繩子)
Bamboo, recycled colour plastic bags or clothes, twine (or rope)

作品以圖像式的手法描繪月球以及她所牽動的潮汐。波動扭轉的「潮」帶領著一群「魚」游向月亮。「魚」象徵潮水支持的整體生態系統,將裝置於竹子編製的「潮」與周邊地上,邀請觀眾走進其中,親身體驗這個獨特又超現實的環境,藉此提醒著與河川生命共存的重要。作品期望探討月球引力與潮汐的關係,強調潮汐帶給這個區域的豐富生命。

此外,魚的身體將穿插編織塑膠袋或回收衣物,除了為作品帶來對比的色彩,用意是藉此象徵人類對自然恩賜的濫用,同時指出回收對環境的重要,否則這些廢棄物可能對水資源與土地造成嚴重的傷害。

The design is a graphic depiction of the moon and it's affect on the tides. The 'tide' is undulating and twisting across the ground and up towards the moon bringing along with it a school of fish representing the wildlife that the tides support as a whole. The fish are attached to this 'bamboo' tide, and are also spiked into the ground inviting people to walk amongst them in this unusual and surreal environment, a reminder of our co-existence with the life of the river. The idea is to recall how the lunar forces create these tidal changes, and to highlight the rich life that the tides bring to the area.

As a reminder of the abuse that we bring to our environment, the fish would have coloured plastic bags or recycled cotton from old clothes woven into the bamboo structures, providing colours that will contrast against the natural tones of bamboo and the surrounding nature. The recycling and repurposing of these plastic bags or fabrics will not only add colour to the installation, but will also highlight the importance of recycling, a reminder that we need to help protect our environment from the pollution caused by discarded plastics that cause so much damage to the creatures in our seas, rivers, oceans and on land.
