Public Art inspired by the poem “Can I Say” by writer, XiXi. We aim to create a public interactive art to inspire creativity. We created a poster consist of different phrases, such as a bowl of rice, and leave the quantifier (bowl) of a phrase blank, inviting the audience to fill in. The quantifier doesn't have to be conventional, such as a field of chocolate, a bouquet of snowflakes...Based on that, we creates illustrations and postcards as gifts to return to participants.
