Ruminate on the negative and see the suffering compound, focus on a task or a moment and get more from it. Creases on a Map was an exercise in focusing attention on points on the map which would usually be overlooked; not tourist destinations or local hubs, but sites so normal that they could blur into countless others but for their alignment with the creases on a paper map.If the "folding" of maps is used as a metaphor, then the walking and positioning of artists also remold the meaning of folding on another level of space.
Young Artist Residency Project
‘HouTian Project Young Artist Residency Project’ is an artist residency project initiated and developed by HouTian Project. With ‘local’ acting as a base, as well as a research target, residency participants are sought to realize projects that radiate surrounding areas. Through investigation, research and exchanges in the sociocultural environment, focus on specific characteristics of the area and understand the local cultural atmosphere. Simultaneously, artists will be sharing and exchanging with other professional researchers from other disciplines, thus breaking from the context of one’s own conventional artistic practice. The artists will engage in interdisciplinary thinking and artistic exploration, leading to the creation of outstanding and thoughtful work with greater possibilities for artistic breakthrough.
