The gallery walls are designed to be reconfigurable. They can be stored inside a data cabinet, which represents the data collecting and archiving process of every piece of information; They can also be scattered around the space, which represents the transmission and exchange of information. The reconfigurable settings is a metaphor for the internet and showcases its process in an analog way.

We invited everyone: artists, curators, visitors, critics, volunteers, builders, art handlers, museum guards, ..., to physically kick off this exhibition. The actual layout of the exhibition was an collectual output by many minds and many hands. We also have a miniature model of the entire gallery space in our exhibition. This helps everyone to understand the underlying mechanism of this exhibition, and allows further interactions among a larger group.

We invite everyone to share their thoughts on the exhibition and the artworks. We have a cloud-base social platform which allows everyone to post comments through their smartphones. Each piece of artwork is associated with a QR code, which leads to a database that collects the user-generated comments about the artwork. We also have a printer that enables visitors to print out their comments and take them away as a gift.
