Now that Human Matter, an art exhibition at Palazzo de la Salle in Valletta, has come to a close, some of the up-and-coming artists who took part have reflected on the experience. "Human Matter provided a unique platform for our artistic collaboration," says David Falzon who, along with Annalise Schembri and Matthew Schembri, worked with a number of top artists on the project. "As emerging artists we are grateful to have exhibited our interactive installation in such an important venue. Human Matter has undoubtedly helped us to improve and challenge our approach to art-making.

"Setting up Onfoh was not an easy feat and a number of logistic factors were taken into account. The collaboration demanded a constant evaluation of each other's opinion as well as the need to work as a cohesive unit. Our aim was to invite visitors to query the creative process as well as the concepts being conveyed while interacting with the artwork."

Human Matter also featured the work of Victor Agius, Caesar Attard, John Paul Azzopardi, Aaron Bezzina, Vince Briffa, Elisa Von Brockdorff, Kane Cali, Sabrina Calleja Jackson, Giola Cassar, Justin Falzon, Alexandra Pace, Paul Scerri, Joe Smith, Ritty Tacsum, Jesmond Vassallo, Raphael Vella and Robert Zahra. It was curated by Joe Philippe Abela, Roderick Camilleri and Elyse Tonna, in collaboration with the University of Malta - Department of Digital Arts & Faculty for the Built Environment.
