Principles

Art in the Modern Era was thought of as an autonomous expression of artists’ inner world.  However, today art is a form of mediation to reconnect our inner world with society, as well as facilitate diverse relationships. Social Art Lab draws upon interdisciplinary approaches of art, technology and environmental design to confront social issues while fostering interaction among diverse communities.  The laboratory will continue to promote new perspectives on art and society.
