A Narrative on Taiwan's History
The history of Taiwan does not just comprise past episodes, but includes a dialogue between the past and the present, the individual and the group, and human cultures and nature. Adopting such a historical dialogue as the design concept, the timeline of public art in the Museum begins from Taiwan in ancient times, Taiwan in the contemporary times, Taiwan in the present to Taiwan in the future and finally circles back to Taiwan in ancient times, demonstrating that Taiwan history is an act of constant interpretation and an endless cycle. “A Narrative on Taiwan's History” is represented by three artworks “Sailing to the Dream Land“, "Harmony", and "The Origin of Taiwan: the Future Island". Combined with the main design concepts of the Museum--“Sailing”, “Sandbanks”, “Cloud Wall”, and “Integration”, these public art works not only generate a dialogue between the past, the present and the future but also form a connection between the public, public art and issues relating to history and culture. Once visitors enter the park, they enter into a historical dialogue through the interface of public art. The Museum serves as a platform where social consciousness, public intelligence and mass concepts come together.
