Taro Shinoda was born in 1964, and studied landscape gardening before becoming a visual artist. His wide-ranging work encompassing sculpture, video works and installation delves deep into the relationship between humans and nature, receiving substantial international acclaim. The theme of the work is Treaty of Peace with Japan which was signed in 1951 in San Francisco officially ended the American occupation of Japan and ended World War II in the Asia Pacific region. On the same day the treaty was signed, the US and Japan Security Treaty which resulted US military to base in Japan was also signed. The video was taken in a former military facility and its surrounding in San Francisco and a room used by Douglas MacArther during the occupation in Japan. By taking an abstract approach to examining historical relationship between Japan and the US, the artist attempts to suggest the possibility of finding a new path forward.
