The artists in this exhibition use lines, the most basic of the design elements, to interpret transition and change. An example of ever-changing lines can be found by gazing at the horizon - it appears the line is straight but it is easily altered. The artists are striving towards their own "horizon line", the ever-changing expression of the most basic of all ideas.
