“Object System: Doing Nothing” (O.D. for abbreviation) is Vitamin Creative Space’s project for ARCO2004. “O.D” project cited from the philosophy thinking “Doing Nothing” by Chinese philosopher Lao Tse as the conceptual core. ” Doing nothing” does not mean really do nothing, but dose mean how to cultivate yourself from tumultuous life into empty field and finally reach the spiritual state of ” doing nothing is doing everything”. Vitamin sent this proposal to Chinese artists to invite them contributing their ideas and finally 18 artists involved into the project.
