In Soulangh Cultural Park is composed of two parts, of part made in Tainan city, titled Tainan fiction, and of images, made in Jiali town, titled Jiali circle. The projects are different in their approach, one using photographic film, tripod, and long exposures, and the other being a bit more spontaneous in its making with digital camera and hand-held shots, but both about the surrounding environment, caused by the experience of finding oneself in a completely new and unknown place.
