Inspired by 8000km & 6 hours

From China to The Netherlands, from Hefei to Eindhoven, 8000km and 6 hours makes me realize the differences between those 2 places. almost half of my works are about translate my oriental life style to my contemporary life style.Those wisdom from ancestors about life and balance always whisper around and give me new inspirations.

 

从中国到荷兰,从合肥到埃因霍芬,8000公里与6个小时的时差让我重新省视我所生活的地方。我的作品中近一半在传达东方传统如何回归到现在生活方式之中,祖先对生活的智慧和平衡力总会缭绕在我耳边,给予无限启发。

 

Before the ideas come out

“I am having fun with all these colors, materials and shapes, but I am less sure how this will apply in my future designs. However, I am sure something good will come out of this.”This is the sentence which i think able to express my process before the ideas come out.

 

“我在与这些色彩、材料与形体玩耍,虽然我不知道他们会怎样应用到我未来的设计中,但是直觉告诉我这些有趣的东西一定会有用武之地。“这句话应该是对我自己设计发想的最好写照。

 

Normally we get the task first and then start to do certain experiments. However, sometimes it is the other way around, we start to play with the materials, discover new possibilities and then apply it to the design work.

 

通常我们会在有了明确的设计任务之后开始特定的实验和尝试,与此同时,反其道而行之的探索也非常有趣,探索材料的可能性,体会创造之趣味,再应用到新的设计中去,总会有意想不到的惊喜。
