The name of this work is Can Not Breathe, and it mainly records the cities and important time points I have passed through during the worst period of the epidemic. The first half of 2020 was suffocating for me, because I was in quarantine most of the time and experienced the worst periods of the epidemic in China and the United States respectively. I indirectly demonstrated the painful process I went through and the extraordinary journey experience through the documentation.
This work is mainly displayed with flat posters and website pages, and it is also very consistent with the way that everything is in the cloud in the current epidemic, and I will share my life in the epidemic with you.
