BLURB

Perspective and relativity. Camaraderie and bravery. If the world was being invaded by an alien race, surely we would seek comfort in our numbers. Each one of the 7.5 billion of us offering a single serving of comfort, or perhaps just an illusion of such, for all other humans on the planet. Scaled down. A small island. Each artist takes comfort in the framework of another. Each writer framing the solace of the artist’s vision. Each LED programmed to illuminate hope. In this battle, there 7.5 billion pixels and dots, brushstrokes and grains of wood, particles of paper all keeping this island safe. The war rages on between understanding and acceptance. Expression and censorship. It is on this beach front that foreign foes are held back. Between the outside concrete and the indoor concrete, there is an alien line of bombardment falling and clashing against ideas and visions.

STATUS N/A. Public collection, Ningbo.
