East Lake Shenzhen River Dapeng Bay
Water Wall, consisting of 960 glass canisters filled with water taken from East Lake at Donghu Res. Park, Shenzhen River that divides the border between Shenzhen/Hong Kong, and Dapeng Bay, was situated in the main venue for this biennale (underground space in the civic square). The wall of glass canisters filled with water were transparent and looked like a wall of glass block. Shenzhen is located in the Pearl River Delta which has been instrumental in its development as an economic center. My intention was to bring people's attention to the waters of the delta and was to change their perception of the place by looking through the transparent wall - or a large lens - of the Pearl River waters. Nothing is more precious than water. The wall contained the lake, river, and sea and became a comprehensive representation of the waters.
