Video: Letting Go
Through a virtual exhibition and an online interactive portal, 9 emerging artists expand their practice with Augmented Reality (AR) technology and invite the audience to touch on adversities, acceptance and resolution in a virtual space of shared experience – anytime, anywhere with their personal digital devices. The project is co-presented by the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University and the non-profit gallery 1a space.
