Every time you visit the east coast, you can find true relaxation. All you have to do is look up at the sky, listen to the ocean and realize you’re away from the clamor of city life. It’s as if you’ve entered a whole new world. Kulele reminds us through his work “Traveler’s Eyes,” that our eyes are actually a vehicle that connect our inner spirit to the outside world. Visit the Jialulan Recreation Area and let your spirt roam amongst the natural beauty of mountains and the sea.
Tapiwulan Kulele is a Paiwan artist from Pingtung. Most of his work is sculpture. He specializes in making mixed-media pieces using wood, stone, scrap metal. Kulele has forged a deep connection to the east coast because of its inclusive atmosphere that fosters unrestrained creativity. This atmosphere is reflected in the work of local artists. “Traveler’s Eyes” is a giant pair of scrap rebar eyes that are 800 centimeters long, 400 wide and 250 tall. Kulele hopes you will stop and take in the scenery while looking at his sleek and elegant installation. During this pause, he hopes you can reflect on your intrinsic connection to the natural world. （Photo Credit：IG@annie_0939）
