(Un)enclosed Space, Circular Form
Relative/Reflective is a collaboration and an ongoing dialogue between Marius Hokstad and Mingxuan Tan. The project stemmed from the artists’ curiosity towards the notion of the subconscious and unexplainable collective experience, such as dreaming. The artists discuss their dreams, the hidden symbols, and the meanings of them.
