Curated by a team of art curators and philosophers, this group exhibition is an extension of 'Empty Fields I', which consisted of an exhibition and seminar held at the Taipei National University of the Arts' Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts.

'"Empty fields" can be understood as an experimental space for a new dialogue between contemporary art and contemporary philosophy, that opens up various energies of difference, a "site of presence" where various forces flow and perceptions interact, promoting imagination about unnamable and unimaginable things that are on the verge of arriving or happening.' - excerpted from introduction by Wang Pinhua

This catalogue features essays focusing on individual artists' works, which have been divided into four sections: Subject Topology, Sensible Now, Digital Scenery, and Free Traces of Fantasy. Artist biographies are provided.
