作品啓發來自東海岸被海浪侵蝕而成的天然洞穴。這種奇妙的天然景象意味著孕育生命的力量,而“Mana”是南島民族稱呼祖靈的共通語言。在滿月的東海岸上,Mana化身為奇特的礁岩,呼喚著岩石上刻蝕的紋樣和潮間帶的珊瑚。Mana是南島精神中,人和自然界的溝通橋梁,祂告訴我們,當享用這片豐饒之地的同時,也必當尊敬這土地。
 
在臺東生活及創作的這些日子裡,觀察植物的生長或岩石形態時,我發現到這種純粹的能量,而南島精神也在此刻深深植入我心靈裡。
 

 
The inspiration of this work comes from the natural caves eroded by waves along the east coast. This kind of wonderful natural scene represents the power that gives birth to life. “Mana” is a common term for the Austronesian people to call ancestral spirits. On the east coast with a full moon, Mana is transformed into a reef rock, calling for the eroded patterns on the rock and coral reef of tidal flat. In Austronesian spirit, Mana is a communication bridge between human and nature. It tells us that when we enjoy this piece of fertile land, we must respect the land. During the period of living and creating works in Taitung, I found this pure energy by observing the growth of plats and the form of rocks, and the Austronesia spirit is deeply implanted in my mind at the same time.
