107,594 is the estimated number of Iraqi civilians who died from violence since the US-led invasion, as of October 29th 2010 (Source: Iraq Body Count). To me, the number is so big that can only exist on computers. Using my body, I want to feel the magnitude of this number and the scale of the war destruction by writing the information of the victims on index cards. Since November 19th 2010, I have been writing the cards every day for an hour.

I am in March 2004. That means exactly a year since the war began. 13,900 cards are written and 3 pens are consummed. It's absolutely not easy to finish this project but as of today, I am still determined.
