The Bowl of Regeneration

The 10th annual retrospect of the 921 Jiji Earthquake
Epicentre: 23.85°N 120.82°E

An unprecedentedly heaviest earthquake in the past century shattered Taiwan at 1:47 a.m. on September 21st, 1999.

The epicentre was in Jiji in Nantou county in central Taiwan with a hypocentre of 8 km in depth, registering 7.3 on the Richter Magnitude scale. The intense quake which had lasted up to 102 seconds resulted in the dislocation of the Chelongpu Fault with a surface-faulting up to 80 km in length, 2,455 death tolls, and whole-collapse of 50,652 houses. The whole nation has thus begun the largest scale of "action of love" in history fully demonstrating the amazing vitality of the Taiwanese.

We witness the regeneration of the people and the land
—from the waste land*.

* The Waste Land is a 434 line modernist poem by T. S. Eliot published in 1922.
