Human relationship is one of the most favoured topics for Debe Sham. Through her works, she seeks to inject new ideas, perspectives and even surprises into the area of human interpersonal relationship. “Rainbow Series I – Orange Chair” explores the changes in interpersonal relationship when people bid farewell to their childhood for adulthood. During the former, people are carefree playmates regardless of each other’s background but win-lose calculation comes into play as adulthood approaches.

Despite different backgrounds and upbringings, kids naturally make friends and have fun together, like having inborn friendliness.
 
So since when, we start to be calculating?
