From 1895 to 1945, Taiwan was part of Japan as a colony. During this period, Japanese government built over 200 Japanese shrines in Taiwan as the holy and inviolable symbol to show the political power. Kenkou Shrine was also one of them, and built to honor those people who sacrifice for the Japanese government such as Yasukuni Shrine. After WWII, Taiwan was occupied and ruled by the Nationalist government from China, Kenkou Shrine were rebuild as Chinese palatial architecture and used as the committee to expand the mandarin Chinese and art education. Although the style of the architecture was totally different from Japan Ruled period, but the holly pool before the building was still saved. In the idea of Japanese Shrine architecture, water was considered as an important symbol to show the power of the nature, so it could always be seen in the artificial landscaping of Japanese shrine. This project designed a water video installation with the original design drawings and sacrifice list of the Kenkou shrine and the sacrifice list to show the religious ritual function in Japan Ruled period of Taiwan, discussing the regime change in Taiwanese history.
