" F.N.S.X. @ History of the Future" exhibition is currently opened in Cloud Art Museum til 25 Aug, 2022. Four artists, Fei Jun, Daniel Shanken, Peter Nelson and Xu Yibo, are invited to participate in this exhibition curated by Janet Fong. The exhibition attempts to explore more possibilities on the correlation between physical spaceas and virtual spaces. It also takes the historical perspective of a microhistory[ “In the 1970s and 1980s, microhistory provided a revolutionary new perspective… its focus was not on what a specific person looked like at a particular moment… it could serve as a clue leading us to the ‘culture’ of a society, and its various linked systems” Sarah Maza, Thinking About History, p.303-307. ]: it attempts to study, against an art history context of object-and-space field, what possibilities the four participating artists can bring to the narrating images, objects, and spaces created with the visual tools of new technology. Each work exhibited can be seen as a medium with its own characteristics and historical temporality, and individual art histories can be seen as the trajectories of different visual presentations. This exhibition, interpenetrated with three perspectives —space correlation空間關聯時態, hypermaterialities((超)物質性), visualizations and narrative (視覺化敘事 )—depicts the influence that the four artists’ works may exert on the future of artistic exploration, and reflects the possibilities and opportunities brought by digital technology and virtual space to the research of art history.

Art-making in this context is also an approach to exploring the nature of virtual environments: i.e., an approach to effectively employing in virtual environments to generate new spaces. The approach does not alter reality, but incorporates into reality—be it a physical or digital reality. It ultimately asks the question: can a virtual environment be seen as an extension of reality, or as the coexistence of physical and virtual environments?
The participating works of these four artists are intended to explore the correlation between physical spaces and virtual spaces. Among the works, there are three immersive pieces of art presented by Fei Jun, disporting with the interactive experience generated by the arts of space conversion and coupling for audience. “Transplanting: Interesting Worlds” is installed on the exclusive outdoor space of th

Focusing on the multi-dimensional interaction between art and technology, space and materials, the exhibition presents various types of works, such as installations, images, creative sculptures and new media, and discusses the new possibilities of the future development on Contemporary art.
