ALP 2015 [Day 021] - Design school graduation

This is a super eggciting day! My friends found about about the China Academy of Art School Graduation Exhibition (wow that's a mouthful) and it's is totally worth it!

WARNING. Super long and picture-ful post!

Totally enjoyed the trip to the 2 campuses and checking our creations by the graduating class. Some are really abstract and "artsy" but i still find the experience enriching.

Shall let the pictures do the talking instead.

Every trip averages out to be ~15km and costs RMB50 shared amount 3/4 people. The entire day costs RMB70 for taxi which wasn't that expensive considering the distance (~50km) traveled.

This exhibit is very catchy. Not entire sure how the projection is created although the setup looks really simple.

This tests your grip strength and activates a bicycle pump with varying speed but they probably disabled it for safety :)

Took a cab and headed for the other campus further away.

Oh yeah! Finally someone understands how annoying horns are but the drivers still honked. =.="

Huge campus but the sad thing is arrived a little too late and the exhibits were closing at 4.30pm.
