This exhibition explores the influence of new digital communication methods on the ways we form our identity, create and sustain relationships and how we think and feel. Artist Hung Keung uses envelope as a bridge of communication and emotions collection. Repurposing used communication hardware, Tunni Kraus investigates the ways traditional and new modes of communication affect our relationships. Daisuke Takeya transforms school backpacks, the relief supplies for earthquake in Japan, to bridge communities across cities and nations. Sara Tse applies slide projection and ceramic as a response to the exhibition. Together, they look into the role of traditional and new forms of conversation in a multilingual and culturally diverse city. These interactions trigger sensitive questions about how we express ourselves, how we are being understood and how we make meaningful connections.
