THE EVERLASTING FLOWER BORDER
The flower is taken as the medium to produce this special public artistic work because the flower has played a significant role in the human history and civilization.Looking through almost all civilizations, we can find the flower serving as an indispensable carrier of profound emotions and free spirits.
Therefore, you can see the integration of science and art here, for the sake of immersing people in the poetic domain. The opening and closing of flowers, and the light and shadow in this border are the very epitome of never-ceasing changes in nature.
Long hope that more people can feel and embrace these changes by virtue of my work, which is often absent from the lives of modern urbanites.Living in a concrete jungle, we need listen to the voice of nature and take a close look at ecology. In this way, we can together probe the relationship between human and nature.
Also noteworthy is that in the course of creation, Long tried to infuse the traditional Chinese culture into the work, so you can see plentiful elements of blue and white pottery. By associating traditional culture with modern technology, he want to convey the idea that inheritance and innovation not only feature prominently in but also drive forward the human civilization progress.
