Time On the Circle Line

The scenery of bygone days sleeps deep beneath the rumbling train tracks. The river slows its pace at the bends, as if in search of memories or the time to make measure of the modern minds traveling through the city.

The imagery of a steel box toy invokes nostalgic memories of childhood. Using the Kung Hwa Express and Alishan Mountain Railway as imaginary starting points, tracks, wooden chairs and station plaques create a familiar yet strange spatial atmosphere.

Along the way, station plaques with locations such as hope, blessing, health can be found, symbolizing how people project their dreams unto different stations into the distance through their expectations.
