Topology Illustration by Leong Huang Zi

Home > Winners > #45776


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Topology

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Illustration

INSPIRATION:
Topology was inspired by the various travels that the artist - Huang Zi has taken. When we travel to other places, we open our eyes to the every detail that takes places in the various landscapes. We explore and discover new worlds where people has made their homes. This series is a collection of these landscapes in far away places. A diary of sorts that helps us make sense of where we are, and who we have met in our many journeys. This is the challenge that Huang Zi has taken up upon himself.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Because on every inch of every terrain, there is life. Places that we would love to go to, places that can only exist in our imaginations. Places that we call home. Topology is an ongoing series of black & white hand sketches that explores the imaginative topography of various landscapes and our relationships with them. The project aims to establish an ever going expansion of artworks in an online gallery format.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The online gallery format takes on a full screen approach by giving prominence to the sketches themselves

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in April 2013 and is still on going. Most of the work are now for public display on the artist's Facebook and Youtube account.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The sketches were compiled from the diaries and sketchbooks of the artist and digitally converted for an online gallery display format.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 800mm X Height 300mm

TAGS:
Illustration, art direction, digital, visual, communications, graphics, artist, sketching, drawing

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
How do we get good vantage views of the locations that inspires our imagination and yet ground us in reality? The artist employed methods like positioning himself at the top of tall buildings that overlooks the vast landscape below. He will then sketch on the spot if time permits. The method of observation and immersing oneself in the surroundings help to unlock new possibilities for how the sketch can turn out. It isn't just about sketching what one sees but to go deeper into what might be causing the scene. For example, a road could be congested only because there is an overturned lorry further down the street.

CHALLENGE:
The artwork in Topology may be a reference to real or imagined landscapes. For example, artists may contribute sketches of a streetscape of their actual neighbourhoods. Other times, they can reimagine these neighbourhoods in abstract form.
