“We may think that we are here to watch a show; and look at some objects of interest. They are looking at us, and inviting us to take a look at ourselves, at our lives. I would not be surprised if some of us are triggered into our own unpacking, and rediscover parts of ourselves, amidst which beauty resides.” a foreword by Prof. Ka Tat Tsang (January 2021, Toronto)
