As the weather is warming up, the temperature rising of the sea and acidification bring severe theat of survival for coral, and even lead to its death or albino. The corals live in hard situation in the world now. We build a coral heart which belongs to Taiwan specially on 2019 Taiwan Lantern Festival, hoping to express that people get along with nature in harmony.
The coral is like an umbilical cord which breeds innumerable marine life. We combine the concepts of architecture, lighting and performance art. The concept of marine conservation with material characteristics is awakened by the Coral Heart exhibition. The originally bleached coral gradually becomes active with the nighttime light-dimming and temperature changes, demonstrating the benign interaction between people and the ocean! We anticipate the coral's gradual recovery, re-growth and symbiosis.
