On historical sites, one can always feel both the ​​presence and the absence of importance. These intangible qualities tend to be invisible. Persistence work, for example, can only be imagined through stories and artifacts behind the Siao-Long Sugar Manufacturing Company.  A Panoramic artwork is created, to bring the liveliness of the scenery by depicting the hard work, and visualizing the demolished surroundings. Stepping into the drawing-like structure, it surrounds the observer, while the 360° view aims to reconstruct what has long disappeared. The sculpture applies industrial metal, used for reinforcing man-made environments. This material is all around us, acting as invisible protection. It reveals itself only if coming out of the ruins, offering a track to follow, and calling the imagination to build upon. The installation is constructed on such hundred years old remains.
