Collection: "All that is solid becomes vapor" organized by Emily Chao (online exhibition)

We long to remember our dreams upon waking

Landscapes formed of memory

Objects lose their shadow; 

we become tourists of these spaces

And all that appears solid, it

It inevitably becomes vapor


These works gesture towards a material reality yet resist a fully solid form.
