Picture Online Exhibition
When do we start calling it “a picture”
or stop calling it “a picture” —
I think this is still a picture.
It’s undeniable that now we see pictures more often on PC’s or smartphones through platforms such as social media, and I’ve had a question for these few years: What actually is a “picture”?
This exhibition embodies that question
and the best answer that I can come up with for it.
I had no idea that I would have no choice but to have this exhibition online, therefore seen exclusively via PC or smartphone due to the expanding infections of the virus.
I can’t help but feeling that it’s oddly fortuitous.
