On the scale of million years, Hsinchu Industrial Science Park was built in forty years. However, the cut of Hsing Cheng Fault has put the seemingly perfect science park in an extremely unstable state. Therefore, it will be a process of conflict and balance between the 28 kilometers natural line and the 749 hectares artificial park.
By inserting an observation park, seismic energy is discovered and perceived through space. 500m Measurement Line A is a process that returns to the nature from the man-made park. This is a huge crack of 6 meters wide and 15 meters deep. One side is made of retaining wall, and the other side displays a long painting formed by the geological texture. At -6 meters, the void is where the rocks can fall out naturally. It is a stage showing the raw power of nature. There is a water well with a depth of 5 meters at the bottom. During heavy rains, rain will converge to the reservoir through the 30 cm ditch next to the rock painting. At 415 meters, one will reach the fault line. The structure of the two roofs is fixed to the upper and lower plates respectively. The sequential columns and walls in the corridor will gradually move within a hundred years, creating the possibility of opening or closing, affecting the movement and circulation. At the end of the corridor, there is a theater. I wanted to create a place of seeing, where the experience of seeing and observing slowly changes through the raw power of nature. The inclination of viewing the performance also implies the movement of the fault year by year.
I want to create a sublime artistic experience as danger and beauty collide. In the nanoscale world, I want to rediscover the human scale and the earth scale. Through the observation of a geological phenomenon, I want to reveal the power of nature in a seemingly perfect man-made environment.
