The numerous bases seem to have frozen droplets of water in a flash. On campus, they stretch from the base of the mountain up to the top of the mountain. Seven smooth, rounded shapes like droplets, both big and small, seem to have fallen poetically into jade plates. The moment that drops of water fall as well as the instant that these droplets freeze, stir the audience to think that each person has different impressions of NCCU when it rains. At the same time, the form of these droplets can also replace the benches once placed along the path, making this a place to rest, ponder, chat, or gather. The audience can wander along from the bottom of the mountain to the top. From the landscape of the dormitory courts, there is a sense of poetic richness to the blending together of the statues in the landscape and the architecture in the environment. By relaxing the body and mind to go and experience this environment, the audience can explore and meditate. This work of art enables the audience to see the mountains as mountains for one moment, but then look at the mountains and no longer see them, before once again seeing the mountains afresh. In this space, there are numerous layers that allow for an unlimited number of thoughts. This work of art also contrasts with the academic atmosphere of the prestigious NCCU campus. As for the desire to pursue knowledge, by going through the process of investigating doubts you remove ideas and probe into things and then look inside to examine yourself. To attain complete enlightenment on the expansive realm of life, you thoroughly understand the essence of life.
