In the exhibition, Tsai continues to utilize his visual language to invite his viewers to reflect upon the global pandemic with a new perspective. His juxtaposition of imageries and careful choice of colour palettes transform his picture plane into a lens for viewers to look at the current event that has been affecting every aspect of our lives – the pandemic. The epidemic has inspired Tsai to experiment with new methods of viewing art, in addition to innovative reflections on the core of art and creativity. The exhibition also features Jacky's augmented reality (AR) works, presenting an interactive art experience that combines art and technology.
