Artwork 1 Details :10267.47 to 0 km Vancouver to Hong Kong. Hong Kong to Vancouver. If technology can hold us tighter… This work intends to express how the artist imagines metaverse and NFT can connect her other half in a long distance with an extreme time difference. Metaverse allows them to see each by the VR headsets, and the NFT gallery shares their valuable memories. Feeling so close and far. But it feels closer again when they meet in the digital world, leading them to a brighter future. The time of waiting to reunite is not as tough as they thought.
