The festival brings together arts, multimedia, and digital technologies to create contemporary conceptions of the traditional Festival, through the eyes of artists and creatives from both Taiwan and internationally. Therefore, the installation is a reinterpretation of tradition through the modern medium and portrayal of different animals in forms of neon light sculptures. An affective mood surrounds the space, as visitors interact with the light sculptures, appreciating the meeting of old memories and new ideas, under the moonlight.
