The exhibit challenges conceptual and cultural translation while pinpointing identity through the objects we propose for creation by another culture.

Theme: Culture Laboratory members design images which will be hand painted as blue glaze onto porcelain tiles  by the phenomenal ceramics workers in China. Dryden Wells has been working in China for almost 3 years, and will be coordinating the exhibit with stateside help from Ian F. Thomas.

The exhibition entangles intention, translation, and the potential for communication into a series of finely crafted objects. Finding venues in China and America allows for a cultural globalization of the ideas, objects and practice.
