This installation is a landmark placed by the roadside to draw the attention to the entrance of the Dragon Mountain Natural site (Zhulong Shan), a typical example of « Shanshui » traditional Chinese landscape composed by mountains, forest, clouds and water.

 

During the day time,there are three different sequences of approach and just as many levels of perception in this installation from difference distances. And at night, thousands of stars appear on the poles, perforated randomly, and give shape to a mountain vibrant with light.
