Jen-Ta Liu, or formerly known as Jin-Da Lin, was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1983. He graduated from the Tainan National University of the Arts with a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2010. He currently resides in Taipei, where he specializes in museum display design and also engages in art creation. In the early years, he founded the "NO" mountaineering community in online forums and developed a series of anonymous land art creations, and he founded nature writing for online collaborative editing. Between 2012 and 2014, he founded a private cinema, Platform Movie, in a penthouse apartment next to Shilin MRT station. In 2017, he re-established childhood memories of the aquarium with his "An Annual Report on the Public Aquarium." It combined museum studies and existential philosophy and described the interactions between an individual's internal experience and collective memories through text, images, objects and modification of an actual space. His works have been exhibited in Taipei, Seoul, Ho Chi Minh, Berlin, New York City, Minneapolis and Venice.

The Quiet Hill of the Mind
The setting is the border between Pinghe Village and Zhixue village, located in Shoufeng Township, Hualien—the fourth floor of an apartment building next to a highway. From the elevator, through the hallway and into the room, it is dark and moody. You see only a simple desk, a double bed and a closet in the room. You smell decay and or some other rotten odor from a peephole in the bathroom. Cold sun shoots into the room leftward from a large window. The light shapes the wrinkles of a white be ...

Platform Movie
Platform Movie is about a 2012-2014 top-floor rental called the Platform Movie Apartment, located next to the Platform 1 in Taipei Shilin MRT Station.

The Platform Movie Apartment was opened for public tour on Saturdays and Sundays (by reservation) for two years, from June 1, 2012 to July 13, 2014. Th ...

An Annual Report on the Public Aquarium
Six years ago, I bought a 1981 public aquarium annual report at the ROC Flea Market. About 800 pages long, the report is peppered with handwritten memos and jottings in the gaps and spaces among the numerous charts, lists and laws. These notes describe the activities, collections and nitty-gritty work in the aquarium. Following the descriptions in the report, I travelled again and again through the long flight of stairs at the entrance and entered the aquarium that I am familiar with since ch ...
