Artist's Interpretation

The main part of the artwork is a square stone seal, symbolizing the sustainable development and legacies of the National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences (KUAS).  At the lower part of the work are inscriptions of the campus plants, demonstrating the rich ecological resources of the University’s Yan-Chao Campus. The middle part of the work is represented by trees and woods. While the trunks of trees signify the learning and growth of the students, the leafy parts are formed by the signs of industrial gears and information technology, signifying the integration of industry, technology, information, humanity and nature within the school. The soaring swallows at the top part, furthermore, highlight the ingenious soaring thoughts of KUAS students. The surface underneath is formed by the time lines, a design based on the concept of a sundial to enrich the functionality of the space and time.
