Solo exhibition of Pei-Ying Lin : " ‘~’ and ‘!’ " will open tomorrow (Dec. 12) at Noise Kitchen / Digital Art Center, Taipei. The exhibition is divided into two sessions: ‘~’ and ‘!’. The first symbol ‘~’ is named ‘tilde’ in English, and has the meaning of “approximate” in mathematics, and ‘bitwise not’ in computer science. It signifies the ongoing process of blurring and redefining the boundaries of art, science, technology, languages, and culture. The second session falls under the name ‘!’, the exclamation mark. In mathematics ‘!’ is the factorial operation , and as logical negation in computer science. This second session tries to expose the underlying living and semi-living organisms and their essence to discuss their relationship to the exhibition as ‘exhibited objects’.
