An exhibition of selected projects created by students of two art studios pursuing similar creative programmes and sharing concern with the current potential of threedimensional art forms in relation to changing social, cultural and technological paradigms. The show probes into the prerequisites of the emergence of the phenomena of picture, story, and viewer/listener. It poses questions about where and when a human being becomes a spectator, and when is the time of the story told by a picture which involves an underlying narrator. What should be the properties of a ritual enabling 21st-century humans to see through the complex mass of information and observe pure reality? By what kind of gesture would we be likely today to return to ubiquitous pictures their authentic depth? By denying them? By destroying or replicating them, or by coming to terms with their complexity and fluidity?
