In the exhibition, a focal point was the central area featuring six prominent platforms, aptly named "desks", which served as a collective showcase of the desk work undertaken by the teams. Additionally, 12 documentary films were placed and broadcast throughout the exhibition hall, offering a visual presentation of the tangible outcomes resulting from the team efforts.

"The display adopted a montage-style approach, skillfully organizing a multitude of seemingly unrelated cases through speculative and dialectical methods. It not only created a cohesive presentation but also provided a relevant context for the narrative of the films," Jiang says.

The team that researched landscapes and basins created a film, The Nonindifferent Nature — Seeking Macondo, recording its trip to the Amazon rainforest in South America.

According to Tan Bin, one of the team members and creators of the film, it's a trip about an imaginary world. "Macondo serves as a fictitious town in One Hundred Years of Solitude, a novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, often symbolizing Colombia. The exploration of Colombia is inherently complex, which encapsulates most of the elements associated with our imagination of South America," he says.
