Light and Heavy

"If I die in a school shooting
I'll never go home again.
My room will sit unused,
A capsule frozen in time,
A snapshot of how I was.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never see my dog again.
She will sit at the front door
Waiting for me and wondering,
Why I never came home..."

This poem was written by a survivor of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I read it by chance and was deeply impressed. It came to me that a light bullet could bring immeasurable pain. Freedom and democracy means the risk of blood and violence. Based on the study of the changing process of people's psychological activities when the shooting happened, I came up with five different spaces in this memorial park. The combination of elements of nature and stone materials made tourists experience emotional ups and downs. To some extent, this project is a carrier of the memory, aiming to arouse people's attention to the school shootings and rethink about how to protect the children's life.
