Towering Metallic Men Illuminate Taiwain’s Seascapes

Oystermen is a public environmental artwork by Finland-based designer Marco Casagrande consisting of four sand-blasted stainless steel figures of men located on a tidal shore by Kinmen Island, Taiwan. The sculptural installation features the silhouettes of four nondescript men, seemingly standing on stilts. They each stand approximately 6 meters tall, though when high tide rolls in, their height is typically knocked down by 3 meters. The rising sea changes the look of the artwork, making it seem as though the four figures are walking on water.
