Artwork concept – “Intertwine”
The Chinese character 人 (A Person), was a pictogram derived from the silhouette of a person in a RESPECTING gesture.
Nowadays, the character’s meaning of “human collectively” is more important than ever
because seeing beyond oneself is the basis of Respect.
Respect is embracing;
To harmonize, despite all the differences.
Two surfaces, despite their differences, dance together, supporting and counteracting.
Respect is mutual;
To see things, in each other’s perspective.
The totality of each surface can never be seen at one angle.
It encourages viewers to move around, explore and share new perspectives to look at things.
