Analogical Photography, 2016, variable size
In Chinese language, there is nothing in common between the ideograms and the way in which they are pronounced. In ancient Chinese poems, there is a criterion of pronunciation rhythm to follow, and a certain number of ideograms and number of sentences (usually 4 or 8 sentences with 5 or 7 ideograms each), because each ideogram has a single syllable.
In my drawings each ideogram is replaced by a picture in which the intensity of the tonality is marked by the number of strokes that has the ideogram that represents, the poem is then transformed into a abstract painting .
The squares will be screened in a dark room, where the original Mandarin Chinese poems recited will be played simultaneously.
