In 2022, as the nationwide pandemic measures that had been in place for three years were gradually lifted, I embarked on a project of creating sketches of over 30 people engaged in conversations by the roadside. These sketches served as my personal monument to commemorate the three-year ordeal of the pandemic. Through this collection of drawings, I aimed to remind myself that amidst the necessity of maintaining a distance of "one meter or more" between individuals, we were now returning to a proximity of "within one meter." It symbolized the idea that every person had paid a significant price during this period. It served as a poignant reminder of the shared experiences and sacrifices that we all went through during the pandemic, bringing us closer together once again.
