Taiwan is an island country. Although it is surrounded by the sea, its people fear the sea since the politics, the history and the religious beliefs held on this island make people turn their backs to the sea.
Oceanic literature author LIAO Hung-chi and underwater photographer Ray CHIN lead the audience out to the sea and into the water. They prompt us to understand the sea and to think about the possibility that the ocean might become our lives and the future of our country.
”Taiwan is not only an island but also a sleeping whale. Since a whale does not belong to the land, it must wake up and swim towards its future full of possibilities.”
