Ephemeros

  • Inspired by the saying from an ancient Chinese text, A Happy Excursion: “The fungus plant of a morning knows not the alternation of day and night. The cicada knows not the alternation of spring and autumn”, the piece was made through extensive interpretations and explorations on form and color. In order to convey embedded elegance within the text, this piece tried to exaggerate a relatively subtle moment for human beings, as mimicking what “creatures” might perceive time. Based on photos of cars moving by, a glimpse of time (mundane and often neglected), the pages were developed abstractly so that the evanescence would be reintroduced, by immersive imagery, to a more energetic and intriguing state.
