Very thought-provoking! I am glad I was able to attend, the prompts were great, as were the facilitators. This could definitely be a larger-scale exhibit. I enjoyed it very much.

The tour was given by a third-year Art and Sci student. Sorry for forgetting how to spell out her name. She did a great job in explaining the exhibition. The best is that she facilitated visitor's interaction and discussion about their feeling and understanding of each main item displayed. Although she is young and may not fully understand all the artist's points, she apparently has done her homework to make everyone think deeply and share our own interpretations. Without her explanation of the background and guidance of thinking, we would have not enjoyed that much. I would highly recommend to participate in this tour if you are a Chinese, even with good English speaking/reading skills. Also, remember bringing your family members, parents, grandparents or other visitors.
