When you come across a difficult problem, how do you go about solving it? Hope you'll get lucky? Ask for help? Or do you do something about it by yourself?

Made up of visual artists, designers, writers, film art directors and musicians, the members of the Superb Meaningless Invention Group may hail from different walks of life, but they share the same vision: refusing to assess the value of their concepts from an economic viewpoint, they devote their hearts and minds to the painstaking design and creation of inventions that will solve small day-to-day problems and fulfil a spiritual need. They choose to make use of their capacity to invent as a way of demonstrating their creativity and pursuing an ideal life.

In this exhibition, they bring to us what they call superb meaningless inventions in the hope of stimulating the creative power within our minds. Only those who persist, who stay true to their ideas and who take action can turn blue-sky ideas into reality!
