SUMMARY :

This series of seals and calligraphy are inspired by the classic, I Ching (Yi Ching, ). Through this series of works, I want to penetrate into the society we are living through I Ching and practice the wisdom of life by calligraphy. I want to transform the abstract literal meaning into a more approachable way. The content of the seals is taken from I Ching which impressed me a lot. It makes me realize the living condition I encounter and give me a hint to go through the difficulties. For the calligraphy, it is an extension of the content on seals. I take some related social issue as I think it really fits into the circumstances. That’s how I connect the ancient wisdom into such a modern society.
