Prompt: This is a final project for IS 2 2020.

This is a performance art piece that is inspired by Beijing East Village artists. Cooperated with my little brother, I took two sets of photographs in the pond in front of our house, one was during the daytime and the other one was at midnight. The title of this work is 20200505, which is the date when I finished this piece. In this piece, I mainly discussed the yin and yang and also the balance between relationships. For instance, nature and human beings, people, and people… Besides, in the same gesture as the turtles on the fountains, I was trying to express a feeling of hiding away during this tough time.
