This is my graduation project in Taipei National University of the Arts in 2020. I often have a feeling at night that today is so normal and nothing special. Some people I love have already passed, some of them stay….We’re all different people and life is so short, but we spend some moments together. I think the encounter and separation are beautiful, that might be ordinary, but extravagant.
