Window of Huilan

When the rushing water of Hualien River pours into the Pacific Ocean, alternate great waves are formed which is the allusion in naming the place “Hualien” which Chinese meaning refers to “backward waves”. Kuang-Hua Hsiang’s work, “Window of Huilan (backward waves”, narrates a long story with its concise visual vocabulary. The torrential water rushes through the valleys, dislodging boulders in its path, but the fierce water also cleave the holes for each other’s breathing and the windows for the dialogue between the ocean and mountains. Last but not least, it has initiated the history of estuary where pioneer residents congregated around to form settlements, and even opened their world of new life and free horizontal.
