ONSTAGE: INTERVIEW WITH JING LIU, SO-IL

“The Greeks had two words to mean life and existence. Life is the fact that we move in the world, are in the world and exist in the world. Existence is the form taken on by life: given the external conditions, political conditions, traditional and cultural conditions and so on. I‘m not interested in life at all, I’m interested in existence… As a designer, as an architect and also as an intellectual I do this job: thinking about what existence can be, what it will be or what it has been.”, —Ettore Sottsass
