He says that when people jump into this ocean of technology, both their levels of enjoyment and desires are magnified to such an extent that artists are often needed to step in and offer people an alternative perspective on their behaviors of indulgence.

Hu says that while all three artists featured in the exhibition recycle overlooked objects from day-to-day life in their creations, each of their highly personalized styles offers the audience an unusual insight.

Holden, 49, a UK-born artist who now lives in Germany, creates installations that blur the boundaries between sculpture and cinematography. He has brought three kinetic works that combine objects, computers and music to the exhibition.

Each of his works features multiples of single objects - a glove, a hat and an umbrella - used in sequence. Manipulated by mechanical devices, lines of neatly arranged gloves, hats and umbrellas appear to "dance" robotically along to music.

Holden imbues these objects with a sense of spirituality and romance, achieved without the aid of human movement. He describes these works as "ephemeral animations" and "choreographies that are created when sculptures are set in motion".
