Project 70

Completed in 2015, 70 years after the World War II, this mural is a memorial dedicated to all casualties of the darkest period of XXth century.

Each X represents over 33000 people who lost their lives during the WWII, Holocaust, Second Sino-Japanese war and Political Repressions. With 2104 X-es across two flights of stairs, I wanted to evoke the feeling of a checklist.

Given the approximate number of known casualties, a blank space is left for any as of yet undiscovered victims.
