Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
I hope to bring a positive perspective to a dispiriting time through the representation of the SARS-Cov-2 virus as colourful, almost candy-like, beautiful, yet insidious objects. Covid-19 has done profound damage to humankind, physically and emotionally. Yet the virus is simply another species sharing limited resources on the planet with humankind. There is a dichotomy between good and evil. But often it is simply a matter of who’s perspective.
A series of tiny sculptures, each approximately 3cm in diameter. Using multiple colors of porcelain slip, underglaze, and glaze, no two sculptures are alike.
