I am wearing the surgical face mask every day.

In Hong Kong, about 99% Hong Kong people are wearing the masks.

I keep the packages and box of surgical face masks which comes from United States , Japan, Korean, United Kingdom to do the artwork. I don’t know the Japanese and Korea language. So, I use the translator apps to understand what it said. In Hong Kong, I can buy some alcohol swab come from Indonesia. The 75% alcohol swab is essential to my life to kill the virus. There are my experiences in this strange times. In the global world, the surgical face masks are out of stock. Many people are worry all the times. The supply and demand is unbalanced. So, I try to develop the sculpture which is mixed by the packages to give me a peace of mind.
