本次展覽，菲比規劃了一個回應「接地氣，嗎？」的互動遊戲：觀眾進入展場時，會拿到一本 A3 尺寸製成的八格一頁書；扣除封面與封底後的六面內頁，按照觀展順序建議，分別導覽六位參展藝術家/藝術團體的作品；每頁以一幅藝術家代表作品，以及五個關鍵詞組成。
Responding to the theme, Local Enough?, the curator has designed an interactive game for this exhibition. Upon entering into the exhibition venue, each audience member will be provided with an A3 paper size pamphlet. Not including the front and back covers, the pamphlet has a total of six pages, with each page divided into eight grids. The pages are organized according to the suggested order for seeing the exhibition, providing to the audience with information for the artworks by the six contributing artists/collectives. Each page consists of an artwork by one of the contributing artists and also five keywords.
You may wonder why this pamphlet that was supposed to be an “exhibition guidebook” only consists of keywords and does not provide complete descriptions of the artworks? The reason is because the overarching theme of this exhibition is itself a question, and it is an open question without a specific standardized answer.
Therefore, the keywords can be considered moderate and minimum guides from the artists. The design invites the audience to seek out clues from the words and to come up with their own answers through the process of seeing the exhibition. They are then encouraged to leave their answers at the exhibition venue. These clues or answers provided from both outsiders or locals can act like pieces of stones being dropped inside people’s hearts. Some rocks may sink instantaneously, while others may create many ripples. As they roll and turn along with the progression of time, they may transform into energies flourishing from this local land that can bring people closer to each other.
