Gallery VER in collaboration with Nuts Society 

A manufacturing process of any material can be recalled once it is raised as topic of conversation. We probably look back to native idea used to create that material in response to manlike demand. We created several materials from our imagination, and these materials became basis for several products used our society nowadays. Materials inspired by our society in the past with fewer demand were far more creative than materials created in today society with massive demand 

Novel manufacturing processes have been created since then to support an unlimited of manlike demand. However the process aims to produce in term of quantity rather than qualitative creativity, and human makes those manufacturing processes redundant. These result in a regression in quality of product. Both idea and imagination become nothing. The more redundant manufacturing processes the more leftover materials, which opposes to a dramatically reduction of natural resource. And these leftover might be considerate as wreckage left from the past and worthless when the time gone. Creativity and imagination by several groups of people have been widely originated in order to deal with this, making a trend of “reduce” spreading through the society. 

VER gallery in cooperation with Sense to society group realizes that every “outdated” or even “out-of-order ” material may be reused again after repaired. Those stuffs enable to be raw material for the artist and designers to create “the Quality second Hand Art” under concept of “the Re-creation”, which accompanied by an aesthetic and usefulness in daily life.

We have invited 40 artists and designers to participate this project to encourage a creativity and imagination from the leftover or donated stuffs for a re-creation in this activity. These re-created works will be displayed throughout the venue, and will be for sale and auction through a period of exhibition
