Entry Description

“Tender Soul of Ocean” is an exploration of the “distance between people and the sea”, translating the maritime culture of its installation site: Keelung. The art installation uses light to recreate the collected wind data near the local harbor and waters: the awe-inspiring water in the distance melts in the wind and shimmering waves of light.

Audiences can immerse themselves in the waves of “light”. With a special medium, Soft Filament LED, the light beams to all angles, allowing its viewer to dive into the light tide as if they were part of the waves. The light and shades, visualizing the state of air in subtle changes, will adjust according to the wind strength in real-time. The connection between wind, ocean, and light evokes a hidden memory of intimacy between the viewers and the sea. The art brought people closers to the dark blue mystery in a new light, revealing its profound, lively soul.
