Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
What is infinite? How do we define infinite? Is infinite immaterial? ‘Imagine how the world would seem if you were a really tiny person, like an elf.’ - Junya Ishigami My project is a miniature object which inspired by porcelain figures history. In China we have the similar figures collection, but it made by gold. So I choose to combine metal and porcelain. It presents my fantasy world – it is infinite, you can organize and planning everything yourself, so it is a kind of way to talking with myself and the different feeling of “stand” inside building it and stand out overview it is quite different. This object which inspired by the experience of feeling lost in a forest which was my first time feeling infinite. Since, if we walk in a forest without focal position, we first feel lost and if our sight without focal point we will feel dizzy. Therefor in my design I create a forest which you can overview. In my “forest”, you can feel infinite, and when you are lost inside, you can find “me” in this forest as an elf and I’m a trigger to leave this forest and leave this infinite as well. I explored my forest in two direction, inside and outside which discuss the depth for space.
