(The Ruin Image Crystal Project by artist Kao Jun Honn and his friends is an on-going project since this year. Until now 10 ruins in Taiwan had been included in this project. Most of them are abandoned factories, coal mine, Amusement Park and etc. Kao’s Ruin Image Crystal Project originated unexpectedly during an exploration in the mountains, where an axis of life that has long been forgotten was rediscovered. From the remaining site for the once popular “Forest Amusement Park” in the 80s, the decaying ruins of the coal industry that ended in the 90s because of terms with the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the countless industrial roads that have been abandoned in the mountains, the artist discovered amidst these remains a motive for self-inspection and social-writing.)
