These barriers made from iron and a colored plastic sheets were installed in Hong Kong to draw attention to the way in which our physical interactions in space have been seperated during the pandemic due to social distancing. The semi-circular barriers create isolated paths and seating spaces, but the transluecent plastic sheets allow a glimpse at others passing through the space, leading to a sense of togetherness.
