Chapter one: Theme: visual poet
The poet is the Sonnet XXX from Shakespeare.
I use my visual language to express this poet in a modern way.
Theme: the best lasts forever
It is in memory of Japanese genius Jazz-Hippop DJ Nujabes.
Chapter Three: time is distance.
It is a paper type sculpture work. I sew fore letters T.I.M.E into papers. The million holes punched by the needle presents initial distance and the thread presents time. At first, time creates an actual distance between hearts and hearts like the letter T. As time goes by, the distance gets longer and longer like the letter E. Time brings the physical distance from the body, but in the end elongates it into the distance of the heart, which could be million miles away. Everyone thinks he or she could be an exception, but ironically, no one can get spared.
In this project, I projected my design work into a 2.5 m x 5 m screen.
This work explores themes on Farewell. People keep saying good bye since the day they born. They keep encountering with each other and keep saying goodbye to each other. So, is every encountering meaningless then?
I think people leave marks on each other when they interact with each other. When they depart and go on to meet next person, they carry the marks with them. Maybe they feel sad and thus think not worth it, these marks bring everyone his or her own unique identity – they become the very own person in the world. “ Though I already say goodbye, but I will still carry a piece of you to meet my future.”
This poster is inspired by the short fiction “SUM” by David Eagleman. It is about what happens after we die, looking back to our lives. However, ironically “Sum” is really an examination of what it means to live. I think that living in the moment would be the best way to live since we only live once.
It is a poster for a play called “Mary’s Wedding.” The play tells a romantic tragedy about a wealthy lady lost her lover because of the World War II. It is in collaboration with East Theater NYC.
