Exhibition：Eight Perspectives on Reading Objects
Even when looking at the same object, everyone has a different way of reading it. The objects in this exhibition, with their mysterious combinations, pose a riddle on how to read them. There is no single response to the riddle. Countless responses are produced by the crossing of the perspectives presented by the eight research fields and the thoughts of you – visitors to the exhibition. Please join us for an experience to observe and read objects in a new light.
