Qingming is a sculpture formed by traces of visitors walking on an online space commemorating victims of Covid-19. It is an attempt to voice resilience and solidarity, in a time and place where mourning in person is not possible.

Qingming, also known as Tomb-sweeping Day, is a day to mourn and commemorate ancestors and loved ones in China. On April 4, 2020, the website Qingming. space was launched for people in China to mourn the lost lives in Covid-19. Visitors were brought to Hongshan Hall in Wuhan, the place where the controversial “Two Sessions” of Hubei Province were held in January 2020. 1824 visitors left their names on the website to join the counter-clockwise walk and commemorate the lost lives on that day. Trajectories of the visitors collectively formed an online monument. This monument is now permanently standing in front of Wuhan Hongshan Hall on major map websites.
