A museum is a treasure trove with many hidden gems waiting for us to uncover. Every pair of eyes will see the same object differently. Why might some be drawn to abstract works more, while others find a design object more fascinating? How can we share our different viewing experiences and feelings with each other?

The first theme in the ‘Superpower’ series is ‘X-ray Eyes’, designed by M+ Educator Brandon Chan. The workshop encourages participants to discover and capture the hidden ‘multi-eyed creatures’ at different exhibition spaces using small tools and then compile the accumulated materials to create a portrait-collage poster. The process focuses on the collaboration between adults and children, allowing family members to share their unique imaginations through visual improvisation games.

About the ‘Superpower’ Series

In the ‘Superpower’ workshop series, M+ Educators inspire participating families through initiating activities related to the current museum exhibitions, encouraging them to discover each other's creative potential through collaborative experiences.

The creative process expands from the workshop space to galleries, empowering families to explore the museum in their own unique ways. Participants will learn more about their companions and each other’s perspectives in viewing to break through the experience of a typical museum visit.

About the Educator

Brandon Chan is a Hong Kong artist and art educator who graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2012. His artistic style is not limited to specific mediums or materials as his teaching methods respond flexibly to his audience's interests and needs. He has participated in various community art projects, including Play Depot (2018), where he had his artist-in-residence in To Kwa Wan. He used the idea of ‘play’ to transform locally sourced materials into games and tools to connect residents, including both adults and children.

Growing up in the countryside, Brandon has lived with flora and fauna since he was young. Items collected from nature, such as stones, branches, and feathers, became materials for his artistic practice.  He believes that the museum is a place for non-formal learning and holds resources as abundant as nature itself, awaiting audiences to explore and discover themselves together.
