"What Does a Pencil Know?" is an exhibition of sculpture, drawing, and video by three Carnegie Mellon MFA candidates: Huidi Xiang, Lau Hochi, and Max Spitzer. Developed with a shared motif of handwriting, "What Does a Pencil Know?" explores the products of attempting to structure and externalize one's thoughts. Here, conventions of explanation, iteration, translation, and illustration are probed for their potential, all underlined by a mutual and urgent desire for effective communication. This exhibition also features a lounge curated and constructed by the three artists, where visitors may eat, read, socialize, and reflect.
