“Chinese Wailing Wall” on Weibo for Dr. Li Wenliang

On December 30th, 2019, before the world was aware of the threat of COVID-19, a Chinese doctor Li Wenliang issued the first warning about the deadly coronavirus and then received a letter of admonition from the police. Li Wenliang was recognized as one of the earliest “Whistleblowers” of COVID-19’s spread in China. In early February, Li Wenliang was diagnosed with COVID-19 and passed away within a week. His death drew a lot of attention. After the news spread, his Weibo account was instantly flooded with millions of comments, mourns, or simply greetings or reflections from Chinese netizens everyday, known as a “Chinese Wailing Wall”. Those messages had once been deleted and commenting under his Weibo account was forbidden; however, after a huge wave of criticism, the wailing wall was restored. Initium Media sorted out the 732,370 main messages from February 1st, the date he posted the last Weibo, to April 17th and recreated a digital version of selected messages. The NFT is devoted to every “Whistleblower” and those who heard the whistle.

73萬2370條,李文亮微博成為中國哭牆

2019年12月30日,在世人尚不知曉COVID-19的存在時,中國武漢醫生李文亮在社群媒體發佈疫情信息,遭到警方傳喚、訓誡。李文亮被視為最早的吹哨人之一,他後來被確診,並於2020年2月6日病逝,引發民間劇烈反應。他的微博變成中國「哭墻」,每日,成千上萬的網友湧入留言區,傾訴對他的思念和哀悼、也分享自己的生活和感想。這一留言區一度遭到清除和禁言,後在巨大的質疑聲浪中恢復。端傳媒整理了2月1日(他最後一條微博發佈日)到4月17日的732370條一級留言,並精選出其中部分留言,製成本展品,獻給所有「吹哨人」和聽到哨聲的人們。

The Erased

“The Erased” is the first series of NFT launched by Initium Media. We made collectible works based on a few selected news events that had a significant impact on many of us. These works captured the precious moments when emerging public events impacted individuals, as well as the reflections and analysis at the time. We hope to share these memories with you, to resist forgetting, resist being removed, and resist attempts to rewrite history.

“The Erased” includes the story of a migrant worker who lost his home overnight under Beijing’s evacuation of the so-called “low-end population”, the tens of thousands of Weibo messages after the death of “Whistleblower” Dr. Li Wenliang during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a number of ill-fated Hong Kong media and news programs under a volatile political storm. Via these NFTs, we wish you could see our time and see the people in the mids.
