Five aboriginal artists from the Atolan Amis tribe in Taitung are invited to participate in the workshop, including Ruby, Seng-hui An, I-min, Sabu Kacaw、Sabu Lakaw, and their capable assistants. The five teams of ten people participated in a 15 days long (Oct. 15th –Nov. 1st, 2009) workshop, dedicating to site specific art creation and infusing life energy into their work. Their art creations bring viewers back to primordial physical senses and instincts to communicate with the nature, feeling the joy of being one with the nature. Driftwoods induce people to reflect on the issue of a sustainable eco-environment. In a state of existence which one reconnects with one’s true self, inspiration, revelation, creation, one returns to the truth and life source. The Site Specific Art Workshop starts from real life experience, gradually evolves and transforms to enter the environment, and forms concrete expressions related to history.
