Ting is the echo of a cultural collision, the encounter between Hueiting Chang and Christophe Gaubert. A collaboration where roots interlace to give the fruit of their work the taste of an eternal elsewhere, nor quite here, nor entirely there, the imprint of a permanent voyage, fed by memories and desires, by sense and signs, between ordinary and remarkable, between tradition and modernity, between Europe and Asia, between space and product.
