As information technology and globalization continue to transform our
society, what kind of vision of the future can we imagine?

Held in Singapore and Tokyo from December 2019 to March 2020,
this exhibition is an attempt to reinterpret the singular image of the
future that has been cultivated by modernization, scientific and
technological progress, and instead present multiple possibilities for
our future. With a focus on new media art in Asia, the featured
artists use technology as shared tools or platforms to explore
mythology, ritual, and the relationship between mankind and machine.
Within Asia, the forms and processes by which modern technology was
accepted differ greatly. These artistic practices reveal remarkable
creativity and rich sensibilities.
Through different perspectives of artists on technology, this
exhibition endeavors to broaden our vision of a linear future into
futures with open possibilities.
