Chen Yung-hsien (陳永賢), Yuan Goang-ming (袁廣鳴) and Lin Chien-jung (林建榮) show how humans can often feel disconnected and alienated in their natural and urban surroundings. Wang Te-yu (王德瑜) and Tao Ya-lun (陶亞倫) create stimulating visual sensations within a specific space to allow viewers to interact directly with their artworks.
