My Booth

It was rainy when I arrived.


It took at least 20 minutes for the ink to completely dry on those fancy Xuan paper. 
To protect the artwork, I had to place those written pieces on another table.




Some pieces and horizontal layout of names on red paper need to be reproduced later.



Joshua's Journal:

I am recovering from bronchitis and coughing these days. No camcorder was used for recording any writing today. Only cell phone video for a circular walk inside the restaurant.
