About the artwork

What Emerges from the ‘Bubbles’ Among the Row of Traditional Houses?
Amidst a picturesque backdrop of traditional houses nestled in nature, an unexpected sight unfolds: a colossal “bubble” emerges from within the venue. Conceived by Ma Yansong, the visionary behind the architectural firm MAD Architects, this creation aims to forge novel connections between individuals, urban spaces, and the natural environment through architectural innovation. Covered in semi-transparent film, visitors are invited to step into the interior of the bubble, where they encounter a fleeting scenery that materializes exclusively during the festival. From both inside and outside, visitors can immerse themselves in this singular experience.
