The birth of universal exposition has been closely related to the birth of cities since the rise of the industrial revolution. The society has a strong need to construct or share collective awareness. A forward-thinking Creative Expo is no longer confined to transactions of cultural and creative goods. It is now challenging the worldview that we are so used to.
The 2018 Creative Expo opens up a new Cultural Concept Exhibition Hall where our theme goes from “How design improves our lives” to “How we can design and create with cultural thinking.”
The exhibition starts from the self-consciousness of our body, then to the basic human senses to find the clues to creativity. Through various exhibition topics, we discuss how proprioception, an innate feeling, can redefine our understanding about originality, aesthetics and culture.
Crafts are an art practiced physically in person. The process of making handicrafts involves three elements: the artisan, the skills, and the materials. The three elements require time to come together. We must wait patiently for the three elements to develop until they meet and come to the most beautiful fruition. This exhibition explores the relation of time to crafts from the perspective of "time," and thus encourages viewers to reflect on what time means to them.
