//--\\ A touching document: Remembrance 《念》//--\\

This is a very touching document I'd like to share here. It is an audio work. The names of 5205 students who died in the Sichuan earthquake on may 12 2008 were recited here. Every lost life is a lost world. Due to sub-standart architecture these students lost their lives in one of the many schools who collapsed.

Quote from the Ai Weiwei youtube channel:"On April 24, 2010 at 00:51, Ai Weiwei (@aiww)
started a Twitter campaign to commemorate
students who perished in the earthquake in
Sichuan on May 12, 2008. 3,444 friends from the Internet delivered voice recordings, the names of 5,205 perished were recited 12,140 times."
