記載著勇士們的願景與期許 時空膠囊埋於此處 等待未來的勇士開啟
This work combines the mythical tale of archer Hou Yi shooting the sun and an image of a rocket ready to be launched. The act of pulling back the string of the bow is represented by the straight lines of H-beam steel and the curved lines of steel sheeting. Between action and inaction, the energy and tension of the bow create an imposing sight. The front of the piece is made from a decommissioned “Kung-Feng VI” rocket launcher, which highlights the spirit of military equipment R&D epitomized by the Chung-Shan Institute of Science & Technology, showcasing the intelligence and bravery of the armed forces and their sworn mission to protect the homeland.
The use of camouflage colors highlights the spirit of an army camp, whereas Taiwan red and Hakka red symbolize the local Hakka culture of Pingzhen City and the way in which earlier generations defended their homes and families. This work combines colors in a way that showcases the many commonalities of military and local culture.
A time capsule recording the hopes and dreams of brave warriors is buried underneath this piece, waiting to be opened by future generations of warriors
