Green Dock, Living Art Project at Oi!
"We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we've lost our connection to ourselves.", by Andy Goldsworthy
It is an interactive installation that invites the public to reconnect to our nature through all our senses. Visitors may "insert" themselves into different moments of the Green Dock to recalibrate their perception upon nature in their immediate surrounding. By encompassing our bodies within the Dock, visitors may simultaneously view, touch, feel, listen to and scent the sky, the greenery, the wind and other natural elements and phenomena within the site. Subsequently, after the exhibition period, the Green Dock would be "decomposed" into about 8 pieces of partial dock-moments and be redistributed to desirable sites to continue its mission.
Andy Goldsworthy 曾說過：「人常常遺忘了我們就是自然，兩者是不可分割的。所以若有一天我們失去了與大自然的聯繫，就等於失去了自己。」
Green Dock ，就是以草皮作為一個設計重心，藉著這空間去提醒人們別忘了我們是可以和大自然如此接近，讓我們在忙碌的生活中平靜下來，坐在草地上以五感去與大自然重新聯繫，感受大自然在我們一呼一吸間恬靜而美麗的變化，創造人和大自然和諧的共存。Green Dock 是以八個組件組成，可隨時在其他合適場地重新裝置。
