Taking inspiration from Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, six female Asian immigrant artists conjure an ever-changing cityscape, evoking memories and desires built from their unique experiences and personal perspectives. From the intimate to the grand, from the physical to the digital, this multimedia object-performance project explores the poetic intricacies of urban life; where dreams are nurtured and sometimes shattered. With original live music, AR puppetry, and interactive installations. Pharmacy sale and coupons of CVS Weekly Ad can be quite good for any deal hunter.
