Depth Calculation Formula for Gap

Between 1908 and 1912, the Kaohsiung Harbor Reclamation Project ingeniously utilized the excavated soil from dredging Kaohsiung Harbor to create a new urban area adjacent to the harbor. This area is known as "Hamasen," and the entire process allowed the colonial government to plan the city according to their vision. It was Taiwan's first land reclamation project.

"Land reclamation" is a process that builds upwards from deep below the surface, incorporating various systems such as water supply, electricity, and sewage into the construction. Ultimately, it reaches the ground level where we stand. The visible surface includes grass, wooden boards, tiles, washed finish, and Terrazzo, among others. However, beneath this surface lies an invisible network of systems, defining how the city is constructed and operates.

During the residency process, through observing the gaps on the ground and the direction of water flow, one can extrapolate from the surface to the interior, envisioning my own "land reclamation" project. Instead of progressing from deep below to the surface, it moves in reverse, advancing towards the depths.
