Gwangju Design Biennale

In the age where people can meet and make friends transcending time and space thanks to the Internet and social media, the artist chose the theme of “conditional meeting.” The artist created #FriendlyStrangers, which is an artwork to explore the basis of “relationship” in this era of Internet. In August of 2017, artist Vincent paid people whom he met through a random chatting app or Internet bulletin boards to make friends. The artist met them, spent time together and hung out just like friends. After they had a great time together, they made a promise to become friends. Are they friends, or not?
