The blurb and the title express this artwork perfectly; no doubt about it. Every artwork you see here has a story behind it, a reason, and an inspiration that prompted the artists to create it.
How many times have you seen such a special artwork and thought, "oh, that it is an interesting piece." A LED girl gliding gently across rice paper, playfully glimpsing at you, and of course a beautiful Chinese vase painted with such intricate detail. You've looked from up close. You've looked from a distance. You've taken your time to admire. And then, when just as you grew excited, you came up to the label. You're yearning for a reason, an explanation, some sign as to where the inspiration for this ethereal image came from. You are convinced that the title will give it all out. Instead, you find “Bell Chamber."
So "Bell Chamber" it is, and sometimes it is best to leave it a mystery. Take it as an opportunity to flex your imagination. [Weronika Nossowicz]
