Upon many ancient popular customs have long since passed into oblivion, the construction of old-style five-barracks is vanishing. The series of works aims at the traditional construction of called five-barrack in Taiwanese religion.

The settings of five-barracks in religion are strongly related to the development of southwestern coast in Taiwan, a well-known techinical island. The main reasons to the positioning of five-barrack army were to stablilize troubled settlement by warding off plagues and defend the specific village.

To this end, the positioning of five-barracks focuses on the midpoint of and including the four, i.e., east, south, west and north, directions outside the village. However, some villages have only less than five five-barracks for some reasons. Nowadays, Taiwanese five-barracks have been going down the history.

By means of filed work and deadpan photographic aesthetics, this work aims at instigating the introspection to culture of architecture and history.
