Art is useless; furniture is useful.It is the theme of my master project this year in UK.
If you sit your ass on it, it's a chair,
if you walk around and look at it, it's art...
In fact, the more layers of meaning the better.
The original inspiration came form the course I attended last year, called 'Chinese Literati Aesthetics'.
Here is the previous article I wrote about the course.
I am looking forward to introducing the inner thoughts of Chinese culture through a chair, a Ming style chair.
Chinese chairs convey a mass of information, and insight into the contemporary Chinese spirit.
‘Sitting’ is one of the actions we do since the day we are born.
A ‘seat’ is an object which comes from culture.
Because of the seat, ‘sitting’ became a cultural activity.
Thus, the act of sitting affects the form of the seat,
likewise the form of the seat causes different way of sitting.
