Creative Principle

The station’s platform and tracks are transformed into a giant conveyer belt, and the generator room is turned into a huge suitcase. The track, station, and the artwork are integrated together to form a comprehensive public artwork. The large and iconic antique suitcase contains many life’s experiences and memories about the history, the land, and the different journey embodied in this city. It is like a time capsule containing memories and dreams, and it transcends time and space. As each journey unfolds, it links together the most valuable emotional connections between people and the city.
