As part of the intervention, Silent Garden mimetizes with the sound housed in its interior, Semi No Koe participating on the same poetic sound and visual architectures.

Sound piece Semi No Koe by Manuel Rocha Iturbide


Designed by Studio Patricia Meneses, the project is an architectural and landscape intervention on the surroundings of the Fine Art Museum of Taipei, as part of the 2010 Taipei Horticulture and Flora Expo.

While the exhibition that opened on the 6th of November will be staying on for six months, Silent Garden will remain as a permanent work becoming a public space of the city of Taipei.

Here is how its creators see it:

Nothing ever got me,
nothing ever took me,
but the strings of the violin,
while the worm knitted
its refuge to metamorphose.

The project is based on extracting the essence of poetry kept in nature, nature poems.

The silk worm, an insect capable to create its own space to become a butterfly, through its own fluids, building a perfect organic refuge to live its metamorphosis.
