Exhibition Format

The ten schools for children with SID have set up school-based exhibition venues in each of their campuses for their students. Moreover, the ten venues will be connected by VR filming technology. Combined with online interactive games, the exhibition will not be constrained by time and space, and venues will be accessible to the audience at anytime and anywhere. Audience can pick their favourite art traveller from the ten “Butterfly Planet Man” published on the website. With a “Butterfly Planet Man” selection, the audience can then accompany the artist on a journey through different regions and experience the creators’ art.

BACKGROUND

Context Information
of the Exhibition

There are a total of ten schools in Hong Kong for children with SID. Students encounter different types of hindrances and limitations in learning, muscular strength, and wellbeing. Art is an important medium that allows them to channel their soul. Through creation of art, students can express themselves, relax physically and mentally, and extend their limits and fulfill potentials. At the same time, it allows society to learn about and better understand the talents of students with special needs. Through appreciation of the works of art, participants of the exhibition have an opportunity to integrate themselves into the students’ inner world and support the pure artistic hearts of the students.

  • MEANING

    The Meaning of Butterfly

    Caterpillars emerge from cocoons and become butterflies. The transition of caterpillars becoming butterflies symbolize love, happiness, and a wonderful life. Each student is inherently unique and beautiful. They are like butterflies.

  • SYMBOLISM

    Symbolism of a Butterfly

    At first, they may seem uninteresting like a caterpillar. By encountering many difficulties along the road of growth, they become strong and resilient in their own way. By the end of the road, they become unique and beautiful butterflies with a wonderful life. After all, SID students’ life just may not run very far, fly very high, but together, we are a Picture of Love.
