INSPIRATION:To begin with oriental philosophy, the initial human heart is simple and kindhearted. But as feelings, language, and emotions are added, it slowly becomes complex. Then opposition, division, and hatred between people follow. At the end, the only thing that doesn't change is change itself. The initial presentation of the heart is like the old saying: "Peaceful minds remain calm eternally, and agitated minds are ever-changing."UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:Chinese characters are ideographical in nature. The motifs are composed of 525 characters layered on top of each other, each character visibly containing either of the two “xin” radicals. “Xin” means “heart” in Chinese and, in the series, it represents the emotional aspect of writing, since even individual ideographic Chinese characters can express moods, traits and aspirations. Although a common human experience, this form of expression is uniquely Chinese.OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:Narrative Eastern spiritual culture - Different interpretations are given to the beauty and thoughts of Chinese characters.PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:In using heart radical for the layout of Chinese characters, appropriate thickness is chosen and stacked repeatedly until the words strokes of Chinese characters can be seen. The overall visual length is fine-tuned, and the final presentation gives the feel of an acrylic plate painting.size : H 900 mm x W 1400 mmRESEARCH ABSTRACT:The Oriental culture spirit is derived from Chinese characters.
