    In 2017, I spent several trips to Great Kinmen and Lesser Kinmen taking photographs of battlefields remained from the civil war between Nationalist Government and the Communist Party. The natural landscape on the island has been gradually modified in accordance with military use throughout the long period of wars. The ROC Armed Forces intensively built countless fortified points, bunkers, defense lines and underground tunnel networks like ant nests. When the situation was no longer on the verge of breaking out, the islands were once again overgrown with wild grasses and these military ruins became places forgotten by history.
    Surveying along the coasts of Kinmen Island and Lieyu Island (Lesser Kinmen), the scenery unfolding before us is a layered accumulation of time, space, history, and war. These elements are interacting with each other, intertwining and hidden in a seemingly dull landscape, which create scenes with subtle extraordinariness. This landscape depicts the wounds and sorrows from the war. The events that have happened become the traces hidden in space with the slow passage of time.
