Lin I Chen, a Taiwanese, looks out of the window of the guest house at the "Rocks Can Sing" art zone in Beigang Village of Pingtan County, southeast China's Fujian Province, Sept. 7, 2018. When tourists get close to "Rocks Can Sing," they may see artists playing music with the rocks, and people sipping coffee in rock houses. "Rocks Can Sing" is an art project which takes in accommodation, live music, restaurant, cafe and souvenir store. Now, a total of 10 young people from the mainland and Taiwan, including Taiwanese Lin I Chen and her boyfriend Liao Che Wei, work for the art project to promote cultural and tourism exchanges across the Taiwan Strait in Pingtan, 126 kilometers west of Taiwan. In June 2015, Lin and her brother and sister-in-law came to Pingtan to sell tea leaves and handicrafts from Taiwan. Pingtan is an island county in east Fujian, consisting of more than 100 islets and about 1,000 ledges. Impressed by the local rock-houses in Pingtan, they decided to rent the rock houses and start homestays and other business in Beigang Village. Their art project of "Rocks Can Sing" quickly became a success, attracting visitors from the mainland and Taiwan. Some Taiwanese artists even came to the village to seek artistic inspirations.
