Online Presentation of M.U.D. – Movement UnDefined
The Cantonese pronunciation of “乜” (mat1) can be a blank to be filled in, or a meaning to be defined, implying infinite possibilities. The artists of the M.U.D. platform hope to open up a wider scope of imagination for the audience through their creations in an environment full of constraints. It is like transforming stubborn rocks into fertile soil to nourish new lives.
