Dictionary - Academy (2013)

The process of the work starts with converting the stokes of Chinese characters to codes of “0” and “1”s, then a software 3ds Max transfers the converted code to a three-dimensional model. It is a unique sequence of the “0” and “1”s that therefore models are direct and objective translation of the strokes, making it into forms without individual subjectivity. The ‘writing’ and ‘creating characters’ are based on the combined models that form the meanings and concepts of words and sentences. The ‘words’ in the space then creates other meanings and expressions beyond itself.
