When you’re desperate. Your heart is beating so slow it’s going to stop! Going out of breath! Sweating, blurred vision, stiff limbs, your mind goes blank. Slowly sliding down, you are shrinking into a ball The air wraps tightly around you like a film. Sometimes you trumpet, sometimes you can’t scream. The last blow of fate, that’s it, come on.

The doctor spoke softly about her [1] condition. I was like a nautilus thrown into the shallows of time. Brightly colored but losing its vitality, desperately.

以身堵漏|Plugging leaks with one’s body


Lu Jingjuan [2], jumped into the gap. The cold water pierced into the bones. The cold water to drown the polder. Despreately. Everyone, jumped into the gap. “People are like waves, that’s what the sea is like.” The great wave [3] lowered its head and sighed outside the small flood dam [4]. Just like hope

记忆是重新创造|Memory is recreating


It’s 2021. The weaving factory is a hotel now, a conference center. The water tower on the side, lonely. Superior suite. A private space for afternoon tea. It hears whispers about the future. Desperately Instead I hear memories echoing from the earth Don’t forget Lu Jingjuan’s ,Hope

凡人纪念堂|Memorial of Everyman



Lu Jingjuan’s is Shanghai. It is the less familiar Shanghai. That Shanghai of collectivism and individual courage and, the horn that makes the tide sigh ,Please don’t forget it.

The water tower should be a memorial to Those in despair The ordinary people who fought hard in despair. All deserve to be remembered.Heroic mortals.

Tower into tower


84 thin golden rods that,form the golden tower. This is the golden Lu Jingjuans’,plugging the leaks with their bodies.The golden tower was inserted in the water tower.



“永远的纯真年代” |Age of eternal innocence


Glittering spiral staircase, 100 steps. From 1921 to 2021. Ordinary people,Creating a bountiful harvest on a barren beach
before there are,more ordinary people,create prosperity in Shanghai. “Shanghai is where I grew up and became an adult. with all my sentiments.” Now, Look down,It’s Shanghai.



灯塔 |Light tower


Light shines on the concrete wall,A triangle was cut,”There is a gap in everything. That’s where the light shines in” The glass roof of the golden tower,Glows,That’s the top of the spirit. The water tower is now a light tower,”All life is holy, and to live is joy”



希望 |Hope


She is fine now,Her breath sounds like sweet rain,From Despair She fights with me,To Hope



有一种英雄主义 |A kind of heroism

走100级台阶,很累,但头顶的光线越来越强。最后站在楼梯的顶端,你喘着气,继续喘着气。然后向着东方看去,wow, 远处地平线一条细长围垦的边界线,连绵不断,仿佛无数人站在水里[5],那就是“大海停止之处”。

It’s tiring to walk 100 steps. But the light overhead is getting stronger. Finally standing at the top of the stairs, you gasp for air and continue to catch your breath. And then look to the east. WOW, In the distance horizon a thin polder boundary line that stretches As if countless people were standing in the water [5] That is “where the sea stops”.




“The sea has never hit a lonely place, and no one has been crushed under a cliff.” —-Yang Lian, “Where the Sea Stops” 04
