During my research on the Macao’s Ecological documentary, I had come across with all sort of reports and study. It is an experience like watching an evolution of an artificial island. Due to the later on reclamation and urban development, the mangrove forest, which had served as the only natural purifications in Macao is becoming extinct. I had visited this wetlands and ecological protected area. I had felt the controversial between city development and ecological protection. In cyanotype, use sunlight, time and water to emerge the landscape of the mangrove forest. This form a great contrast with the colorful mural.

When I was small, my impression for Coloane and Taipa were a place for picnic. Times flies, now it has become a stone wall city. It is surround by luxury casinos, hotels and malls. If you did not pay close attention to the surrounding area, you would probably miss that not far away, there is an enclosed area which is right by the construction area. It is the Cotai City Ecology Protected Area. Though the mural that I draw on the enclosing wall, I am imaging what kind of creatures would live inside the protected area?
Tu és feliz, eu sou infeliz You’re happy , I’m unhappy

Walking along the countryside, there are full of the Central Amerial “Sisal”, family of the Agave.
Their leaves are straight, scatter along the plant with thorn, pretending they are the sticking out sword.
If you walk closer, you would be surprise to see these leave where engraved with different inscription.
Some of them read:-
XX was here!
XX successful interview!
XX love you forever!
If I am the “Sisal”, I would draw my sword and mark them on your skin.
