The Reflection on Previous plans for Final show

Plan 1

Reference for label

Works in exhibition Black Mirror

Plan 2

Plan 3

The language of material--

The reason of using transparent gauze:

People can touch and change the shape, as people hang more and more small vessels, the weight will make the shape of gauze vessel deeper.

–-This material matches the meaning that tradition is flexible and changeable.

Size: about 1.5cm

Color: white (black or grey) compare which one is more suitable to hang porcelain pieces

Plan 4

The reason of using small vessels as single element:

1. Each one is individual and independent container but also belongs to the whole pieces. Many small vessels compose a massive vessel.

2. Medium/canvas for pattern, historically the blue and white patterns were used in ceramic vessels.

3. Similarity with plants.

The meaning of the shape of small vessels :

Molded clay forms a vessel; just because of its nothingness (hollowness) the usefullness of the utensil exists.

For the final show, I have many plans and ideas. I know It is not suitable to change many plans before the final show. But I want to use my objects to do the best visual language and let more audiences are interested in my project. So I spent a lot of time to explore the best way of interaction. I designed many systems but most of them are complex and are not the good way to show my most important part. Sometimes, I focus on details but ignore the whole effect of work.
