The project aims to recall our memory of fireworks in the old times of China, when we used them to celebrate traditional festivals or big days. Unfortunately, according to environmental-protection regulations, fireworks are no longer permitted in some area of China. So, an indoor lighting installation was created to re-create firework images with a stop-motion mode to keep the tradition and show respect to environmental protection. From the other side, firework is similar to people’s life, various, splendid and short. This installation is also made to bring the concept of the continuity of life and splendor.
