Introduction

Hi everyone!

We are happy to announce the launch of our Journal section along with our revamped website. Over the past 3 1/2 years of Special Special, we have presented 19 exhibitions, numerous in-person and digital events, and in-house editions.

Artists’ Tools Demo: <br> Che-Wei Wang Dot Blaster 8000
