月津港川流不息的河水，猶如鹽水小鎮生生不斷的呼吸節奏。藝術家創作出帶著游泳圈的可愛Mix Hippo，讓民眾能一眼明瞭藝術作品給與的歡喜氣氛，也讓訪客感染鹽水不停歇的川流與呼吸節奏。有趣的是藝術家運用氣球常見的吹嘴符號，特意把MixHippo鼻子做成吹嘴狀，強調呼吸使Mix Hippo充滿元氣。身上的空飄氣球，則象徵將新春的祈福傳至天際。
The rivers of Yuejin Port continuously flow inland from the sea, like a constant breathing rhythm for the salt water town of Yanshui. 2019 is the Year of the Pig, symbolizing harmony, auspiciousness and wealth. The artist took the above two elements as inspiration in the creation of this artwork. Cute and endering, the Mix Hippo, floating on the water with it's balloons and colorful inner tube, brings a joyful atmosphere to the art space. The artist uses the common mouthpiece found on an inner tube, making the hippo's nose into a kind of mouthpiece, emphasizing that breathing fills the Mix Hippo full of energy. As he drifts on the surface of the water, he brings good fortune and New Year's blessings to all who cross his path.
