When I went to the ART EXPO with my friend, we really attracted by the environment around Navy Pier. I didn’t expect a lot and I thought if I finished early, I would walk around the lake and just relax. However, the Art Expo was so amazing that we spent the whole afternoon in the gallery.
This project was a series of birds which called “TELL IT TO THE BIRDS”. At first, I just attracted by the different geometric heads of birds, they were really interesting. There was a little “HOUSE” which covered stacks of fabric(I think). We could get into that house and when you talk to the bird, the bird would translate your sentence to the bird’s language. We got in and had a try. We sat in the centre and a microphone in front of us. We tried English but it didn’t response us. Then we tried Chinese, it responded! It quite interesting that after the bird response you, you would repeat what it said!It’s really a way to learn a new language and if you have secret, you can just tell them.
This two pieces are in a series. I really like the design just around head. They both inspired me that there are lots of possibility to used the pattern or the way to express when I am designing. I want to make some sculpture like this as well.
This piece is also my favorite. When i came close to the work, it was not a digital work but a painting. The brushwork was pretty flat and the gradual change of color was so natural and tidy.If you gazed at this work for a long time, when you move to another direction, this image and color still appeared in front of your eyes. This kind like a magic.
Here are some pieces I liked.
They were good works but didn’t attracted me a lot.
I really enjoy this trip and there are lots of works inspired me. It helped me to see more types of work and the creation and the possibility of everything around you.
(By the way, If you go to the Navy Pier at the afternoon around 7, the view of the city and lake from the highest position of fairy wheel is excellent!!!!)
