Breathe to create future

In the short sci-fi novel “Breathe” by Ted Jiang says: “All my desires and meditations are the air that the universe slowing exhales.  Air is precisely the medium of our thinking, and our thinking is the mode of airflow.”  It highlights the theme of this exhibition – “Breathe”. Breathing is essential for all animals on this planet. Have you ever thought that breathing may become the new way of communication in the future when it can expand to the universe? The relationship changes in individual, groups, communities, offices, architectures, and boundary triggered by breathing will evolve a brand new future. 

If 2020 marks the dramatic change of workplaces, then 2021 will mark a break-through in the development for workplaces. The connotation of workplace is expanding, technology is driving aesthetics to change, and arts is developing in the scene of workplaces. Innovation becomes the new norm. That is why we need to judge, interpret, promote and transform our work models a.
