Baisha, a rattan town with a history of 800 years, contains rich "ancient charm" of traditional culture. The rattan craftsmanship has been passed down from generation to generation with Baisha people, and the rattan weaving culture has been deposited for more than 900 years and nurtured Baisha generations. Rattan is capable of describing the ups and downs of Baisha for centuries.

The project traces the Lingnan culture by focusing on the ancient Lingnan lane scenery and non-inherited craft and Santang Academy. The reading sound , ink mark, lingering tea flavour and warming rattan are deducing a dialogue between the ancient and modern from hearing, vision, taste, touch five senses.
