Reflected 31 times, and then? 2020
Fell into frustration and kept looping about how could be the way out for the current protest from a dilemma. People sacrificed but justice does not come. Time slipping out, will the protest turn into a memorial event like the 4th June 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre?
I turned my frustration and doubts into an open-ended question. Taking 3D scanning to a self-made goddess of democracy statue as a way to present an act of viewing this piece of history over and over. After many interpretations, we can see the outcomes from the 3D-print that there are some misses and additions.

While the electricity goes through the conductive materials, they become one; when we touch and connect them, it makes us become one and activate the meditative sound.

At the early stage of coronavirus pandemic, while people are still not yet familiar with the behaviour of wearing masks, it was a signature of overreaction. People jumped away from me after noticing I am wearing a mask. *They felt shocked and I felt awkward. When face masks become daily things in Asia, many people among the world are still start to learn how to wear masks correctly. *Frankly and honestly, I witness not-a-few-number of people wearing them inside out, I wondered and hesitated for couple of moments whether tell them or not.
