Thinking through the relationship between object-hood and origin, the notion of the prototype can be engaged not only with the physical models but also with the modeling of ideas, concepts and dreams. First encountering Buckminster Fuller’s blueprint of the Dymaxion car, I became plagued with understanding the underpinnings of what comprises the artist’s vision, and the process of channeling infinite realms of possibility. With this exhibition, I wanted to highlight that initial spark – the beginning – as the essential moment of creative generation.   -Tomas Vu
