Chen-Pin Fishing Harbor

Breath

We use scrap irons and obsolete gasoline drums in the harbor to be our media. The squids jump out of the sea, how a wonderful night with good catch. Every deep breathing and sparkles toward to lights are the breathing of sea. Hoping to express the care to lives and cherish to natural resources by the balanced and regular breathings that come from the beauty of nature and the sign of ocean.
