The exhibition presents the thought and "work in progress" of the projects that each artist is exploring. A process is an ensemble of changes, transformations, by and by oriented to something new. The traces of the development process such as collecting data/found footage, sketch ideas, material testing, decision-making could be found in the exhibition. In this way, it is possible for viewer to enter the heart of the creation process, to look behind the scene of art creations.
