I was asked the question of justice and righteousness

In recent years, Taoyuan City has been promoting the Taoyuan Aerotropolis, and the Dayuan District is facing the most significant expropriation case in Taiwan's history. The government has expropriated more than 3,100 hectares of land, forcing nearly 5,000 households to leave their homes, causing life-long changes in many people's lives. After the development, the familiar street contours since childhood will no longer exist, and the landscape will become dull.
Because of my family's long-time residence in the area, the construction impacted me directly and indirectly. Since 2019 I started a series of video shooting and actions to establish a network with local residents through multiple field studies, documenting the development progress and the residents' life history.
Via actions, writing, publishing, photography, and documentary, I reflect on land justice and respond to the life politics that we are encountering. Also, spreading the word about what is happening so that we could provide an alternative path to returning home before it becomes a wasteland.
