Located in a basin, Taipei is always hot and humid in summer. With a twist of imagination, artist Ya-Chu Kang has decided to spread out a large shing net in the alleyways of the cit's East District. Through recreating the familiar sight of sh drying in the sun by a shing port, she connects the scorching summer in the city to the memory of seashore. At night, the scales of each sh glow in the dark as if the sh were swimming through the alleyways. It also resembles a starry sky studded with the artist's warm wishes for the city.
