On August 23, 1958, the Communist Party opened fire on Kinmen Island, dropping nearly 40,000 shells in a few hours. Over the next 44 days, the small island was bombarded with 470,000 shells. Decades later, the island transformed from a former military base into a tourist destination rich in war and military heritage. It has also played an essential role in fostering cross-strait peace by facilitating communication between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.

The installation aims to showcase the resilience and rebirth of Kinmen. We utilize transparent plastic to 3D print the image of flowers blooming in the Kinmen landscape, scattering them on the beach as if sowing seeds of hope into the soil of history. During the day, the flowers sparkle in the reflected sunlight, while at night, they shimmer under special lighting effects. Alternating between day and night, shining and glimmering, this cycle symbolizes the transient nature of life and the renewed hope that each day brings.
