However, affected by the epidemic, the artists participating in the project have a very different pattern of inspiration from last year in Tai Sang Wai. Participating in the two-legged walk of the art festival for the first time and from what perspective will Li Yingshan (Fiona) create art works related to Tai Shengwei? Chen Baijian (Brandon), Implied and Chen Guqin, who already knew about Dashengwei last year, what is the difference in their relationship with the villagers and the way of creating art this year? Once in the Tai Sang Wai, the smoke lingering and the pictures of the fish and birds were deeply moved by the participants' minds. They all hoped to be able to present the connection between the Tai Sang Wai fish pond and the migratory birds, the environment and the villagers before the audience. "

" Once upon a time, T provided a lot of local freshwater fish products for H city. Sometimes things changed. T and H didn’t have the same pace. In this convenient H city, you can always travel from the border to From the north to the south of the island, however, this plain is like a mirage. It always feels like a paradise, barren mountains and ridges. Perhaps part of the plain is protected by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. It is an invisible barrier. The development of capital has not yet been established. Can succeed. I seemed to have heard a piece of news in the past that someone had sneaked into City H. After arriving at Po, he thought about walking in the illuminated direction and he would reach the city center of H. As a result, he returned to his hometown. "

" "Fish pond", "village house", "pond surface is like a mirror", "watching the sunset", "water and sky are the same color", "white egret flies over...beautiful", this seems to come from the words of the guide, you Aunt Lan, who would mistakenly believe that Dashengwei, would also say the same.
Among the 100 visitors, 99 may agree with the above description of Tai Sang Wai. Some people even don't believe that this is actually Hong Kong. I saw photos of the salon from a few years ago on the Internet, filled with the brightly colored huts that accompanied the fish ponds there. "
