Inspired by ancient Chinese literature I-Ching “Bring still and not moving, one would experience and attain the enlightment of the cosmos,” these works use natural forms to create a sense of silence, warmth and softness, with its metal lattice “weaving” to convey both fragility and strength. It blurs the boundary between what is inside and outside, drawing the two together poetically.

It’s pretty hard not to move. Yet it’s what the ancient text of the I-Ching says we have to do in order to understand the universe. Looking at the metal lattice is like seeing yourself: both strong and soft, inside and outside. Just don’t move for a while and see what you feel!
