The ever-changing social and material landscape of Hong Kong is an enduring source of inspiration for Tse, and these works put the city's dynamic relationships and unique conditions of negotiation in the foreground. All told, she examines interconnectivity in a pluralistic world, using sculpture as a mode of multidimensional thinking.

And the art of improvisation. Negotiated Differences is a sprawling installation of 3D-printed joints and wooden shapes that stretch across the pavilion's spaces – balusters, handrails and bowling pins are connected by craft, mechanical and digital technologies as an integrated whole. Notably, COVID-19 prevented both the artist and curator from participating in the installation in person, so the work was improvised over phone and video chats by the M+ curatorial and installation team. If travel allows, Tse and Li may perform a "reconfiguration" of the work at a later date.
