This installation is an ethereal and abstract version of a traditional Chinese landscape and its elements (mountain, water, clouds, trees). It is also a landmark for visitors and a space of pause, a shelter and transition between the travel and the visit to the natural site. There are three different sequences of approach to this work, and just as many levels of perception: from far away, from closer when driving by, and finally the experience within the installation. At night, thousands of stars appear on the poles, perforated randomly, and give shape to a mountain vibrant with light.
