Contemplating this notion under the context of his residency, Lun will transform the space into a whimsical playground-like setting that defies the formal experience of visiting a gallery. He will also create an entirely new series of Augmented Reality-infused paintings, prints, and installations featuring an eccentric cast of comedic sausage characters.0
