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.
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.
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.
