Regine Neumann of Germany is working hard now with lots of volunteer help to finish here large “iceberg”.  She is making this work of bamboo poles joined with bamboo nails and natural rope, and she plans to cover the huge structure with recycled white fabric to give the appearance of a giant iceberg on the coast in Keelung, Taiwan.

Tsuneo Sekiguchi of Japan is now working outdoors at his site in Chaojing Park to complete his “Keelung Rainbow Hut”.  He dug out around the bottom half of his globe-like bamboo structure so it will sit into the earth.  Volunteers are helping to weave the remaining parts of the top half. Tsuneo will put bamboo poles into the ground next week to anchor the artwork.  Then he will put the bamboo structure together, cut out an opening and finish up his installation with a bamboo seat inside the hut and a small pond with mirrors on it to make the rainbows on the inside walls of the hut.

Yi-shiuan Li of Taiwan is working on her installation “Sea Creature Gods” and has moved the 5 “creatures” outside to install them in the grass near the railroad station at the NMMST.  She has also started to prepare the earth/clay to put on the outside of the bamboo and recycled net structures.
