When faced with this question, we often find ourselves clinging to moments and images -- of play, discovery, and sheer delight. However, for the vast majority of us busy surviving in such a modern and competitive world, the exercise becomes futile. We try, for a moment or two, but simply aren't able to. We convince ourselves that it's down there, in our memory, somewhere... but the here and now is so much more pressing, urgent, compelling. Those moments of discovery and delight become discarded in the past, forever. There were no pictures yet. No phones we could whip out and begin recording. Many of us 20-somethings cling on to vintage photographs, old toys and relics, as trustworthy portals to our long forgotten past. In this exhibit, we want to give our audience a sense of nostalgia. We're all too busy. Our lives have become complex. Here's a dose of what was once simple, easy, and right.
By means of Art, we can bring back all the remembrance and memento in our treasure chests. From the toys and streetgames to all our cultural jamborees and narratives we came upon our childhood days.
