“Narrative Exchange II: Whereabouts” is a play to exchange personal narratives inspired from objects, which are displayed equally in same amount of a divided space. All objects are lost monetary value, and they all have same value and same amount of space. However when visitors recognize objects, which can make any personal connection, the objects do not have same value any more. “Narrative Exchange” focuses on the exchanging process of how to agree to have equal value from two different personal narratives inspired by the objects. The two objects, which two people exchange their personal narrative and agree their same values, would be displayed in the shelves. The purpose of this exchange is to keep producing endless narratives with limited objects.
