RSI-T
2014
The title of the exhibition originated with a preliminary research of the subject matter, which is an initial exploration via medical and scientific researches. In the last decade, technology has appeared in our lives in an extremity. We notice an accumulation of long hours sitting in front of the computer screens, I-phones and I-Pads, social media accounts, and other operating devices (more recently google glasses, Wii, and more). As in ancient days, when man was physically built to h ...

The creative framework of Risks of Being too Bright-sided about Gift-giving is collaboratively developed by four artists in New York. At the beginning of the process, each artist brought in a gift; reflected through the artists’ diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences, the gifts were reinterpreted and thoroughly investigated. Over the course of the investigation, each artist came up with descriptive sentences, responding to and opening up another line of interpretation for cultural diffe ...

Neither of Us – The relation of non-territory
On the street in the city, we might see people responding to each other, vendors interacting with customers, lovers walking out of a café and passionately discussing something, and mothers taking a walk with their kids. It is our everyday life, with nothing surprising but full of emotions. It will be documented objectively and edited into a street corner of a 3D model of New York City. The purpose of the project is to physically experience the historical and cultural reality of a particular s ...

IN/OUT Place
Space offers a systematic definition to place, while place imbues space with meaning. However, for a space determined through satellite, the information-constructed geographical conceptualization and orientation systems are all rational constructs existing outside of the sense of place.
