The Distance Between Mother and Child

Award: Yellow Pencil

Yellow Pencil / Spatial Design / Installations / 2012

One million families suffer from autism in China. Parents with affected children have to confront the issue alone, thanks to lack of awareness. We created an exhibition of ‘Living Sculptures’ in Shanghai. A mother and her child, dressed in black, sat at two ends of a long netted cage, depicting the psychological distance between the autistic child and its parents. The event attracted the attention of over 120 media outlets. By reaching an audience of over 50 million families, autistic children’s plight was heard loud and clear.
