In this article, I analyze my recent departure from the practices of critical geology, investigation into dark ruins, and transitional justice of indigenous sovereignty. I discuss the potential of creative processes to contribute to "social movements." Among those, The Ruin Image Crystal Project: Ten Scenes uses abandoned buildings and sites to reflect upon the influence of neoliberalism and transnational trade on Taiwanese society and offers situations to connect with various communities. The Topa project (2016–) investigates the Atayal Nation’s Topa Tribe to explore the various sovereignties of Taiwan and the descendants of colonized peoples who were driven into the mountains by the many waves of colonization that swept the island.
