A word from the artist :
“My work is created from the wasted resources of express packaging. Discarded cartons and plastic packaging bags are modified with spray and adhesive. Auxiliary materials – acrylic board and kt whiteboard are used to construct a mirror city to express he problems that people ignore. The first is the overall layout. The city layout is built by cutting and splicing paper boxes. Then, the difference between good and bad can be seen from the contrast of light and shade, followed by the gradual change of color. On the one hand, the source of the river is silver and the bright city, while on the other hand, the “dirty ” converges into a place that becomes dark, and then flows into the “hidden world “and into the dark city, which symbolizes the consequences of resource waste. There is a side we don’t know about. “
About the IDEARTS
Art can be defined in a thousand different manners. In today’s world, it is increasingly regarded as a way to learn and share about sustainability and green technologies; as a lever to raise awareness on climate change and throw light on workarounds for global warming; as a means to better understand the problematics of our times and the prospects for our future.
For its very first edition, Vadviam’s IDEARTS programme has invited Architecture and Landscape Architecture students from renowned Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design to create artworks intended to illustrate environmental issues and offer solutions for global sustainability.
