Artistry, aesthetics, avant-garde, narrative, craftsmanship, those are the key concepts that seem to be difficult to mingle in the context of contemporary art, which is the very direction this exhibition attempt to experiment with. Technologies as aesthetic narrative include the command of unique and yet uncontrollable material, devoting tremendous time and technology with astonishing perseverance and concentration, and the exceptional interpretation as well as aesthetics owing to the sensitivity of the creator toward the medium. This exhibition endeavors to showcase how contemporary artists interpret while employing the creative methodology of craftsmanship to offer something distinctive to the contemporary creation and how contemporary artists respond via work creation to the development processes of contemporary and modern history of technology.
