“Inheriting unfinished ambitions, embarking on an enlightening journey.”

After everything we have been through, we have arrived at the present moment and are now considering our future. We understand that art is a never-ending practice.

Ink, stone and calligraphy descend from Eastern aesthetics. The beauty of the sky, the mountains, the sun, the moon, and the stars was captured by ancient literati in poetry, calligraphy and painting; passed down to this day, unforgotten after more than a thousand years. In the digital age, data has become the carrier of memory which also serves to inject new vigour into artistic creation. But will human memory fall into extinction due to interventions in technology?
