Mixed Media

Different textures, techniques, patterns, symbols arranged as if it were a musical composition for encompassing the concept of space, time, numbers…​



  This collective composition of different textures, techniques and patterns is reflecting the notion of our current media-dominant society, one of the solution I ever imagined to present as an artwork. Using these images as semiotic symbols, I tried to lay out them as if it were a musical composition. 2D artwork is often categorised into "spatial art", however, I wanted to make it as if it could be a "time art", in other words, "art based on tempo" such as literature, music, cinema and so on. Carefully arranging each image in order with the understanding of religious symbolic numbers, I tried to compose some core pattern of human experience relating with my personal life. When I devised the plan as if it were a musical note, I was greatly inspired by the creative process of Johann Sebastian Bach, the greatest Baroque composer, and his musical creativity was deeply rooted in his Christian faith.
