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.
