Prompt: The project is to make a memorial.

My artwork will be presented with projection and fireworks, people won’t have to watch and look at the memorial with contact to other people. It will be happening in Wuhan and New York, and the firework will only be on Wuhan River Beach because the situation in Wuhan is getting better now. It will be happening on the 4th of April every year, firework would only happen in the first year. The projections will be about the virus and the artwork of people who have memorialized the health care workers.

To present this work, I will make a video, with three parts. The first part will be the model to show how different artworks that will project on the buildings. The second part will be a video I made to the projection of the video. The third part will be a video I made to demonstrate how the firework shows in Wuhan.
