The Concept of Design

Expressing the Historical value of fishing and agriculture as well as academic significance from newly established colleges in An-nan district, this artwork adopts the shape of a pyramid with a plaid design and interweaving surfaces complimented with a single triangular entrance at the bottom of each face.  This emphrasizes the peak of academic achievement as the top of “ a pile of salt,” establishing a stable foundation.  The climbing ivy along the pyramid, its sprout at the tip of pyramid, symbolizes a new life from natural replication.  During the night, bright lights shine from within each square opening of the pyramid from top to bottom imitating sparkling salt crystals that bring a concept of never ending lives.
