“Syu4 Tou4 Tung4 Gwai1” quoted from Yi Jing Xi Ci II, ‘In all the processes taking place under heaven, what is there of thinking? What is there of anxious scheming? They all come to the same issue, though by different paths; there is one result, though there might be a hundred anxious schemes. What is there of thinking? What is there of anxious scheming?’ said The Master.” It explained as to reach the same destination in different ways — moreover, the analogy to take different approaches to get the same result.

Two participating young artists Ho Oi Ying Valerie and Shum Kwan Yi emerge their feelings on modern society and their own lives through jewelry and Chinese landscape painting respectively. Although they work with different mediums, and also encounter different issues with aspects. Both of them find answers in nature, then respond.

Ho Oi Ying Valerie transforms gravels and other found objects into jewelry, to bring humans closer to nature through her pieces. Also guide the wearer to observe the spectacle, which closes at hand.

Shum Kwan Yi tries to create another parallel time and space by the natural sceneries and Chinese landscape painting under the surrounding changes, modern life, and the powerlessness feeling towards the society. She tries to appease herself and the viewers who share the same feelings.
