Melamine (ME) was served as environmental friendly flame retardant for a long time, and it help persons to escape death by seconds. But it was taken as a well-reasoned Killer via mass Medium in China. Everyone rejected it and ME got a hostile reception from the public. ME was first synthesized by the German chemist Justus von Liebig in 1834, and it was widely used in our daily life. I believe it is time to disclose the deformed mask on ME.

What I'm interested in is how to exhibit panoramic views of melamine for the public, and how to eliminate people's hostility against melamine. Melamine's English abbreviation is ME, this project can be deemed as ME's artistic autobiography.
