The inspiration sources the key project Two Cities Grade at the second Shenzhen- Hongkong Design Biennial Exhibition. Hong Kong and Shenzhen source from Chinese culture system and there are many same spiritual believes in both regions. We found and selected the spiritual and hopeful indications of both cities-roc and Wingdramon and combine the city flowers of both cities-Bougainvillea of Shenzhen and Chinese redbud of Hong Kong by means of crossing to anew deduce a square and continuous image.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In order to response the subject of the second Shenzhen- Hongkong Design Biennial Exhibition Interaction Twin Cities, 1983ASIA designed a group of images with the invitation. It hopes to bring the Chinese traditional culture of Shenzhen and Hong Kong to the daily life by using modern design aesthetic so as to express the core concept of two cities’ grade.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We consider the whole design as a container which can carry the spirit culture of Shenzhen and Hong Kong. In terms of composition, we deconstructed the pattern representing flower seeds and animals in the two places in the form of cross combination with the modern design method into the quadrilateral continuous Yin and Yang pattern. In the plane pattern, the concept of interaction between both parties is expressed.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
2016 in HongKong China
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We redrew and designed the pattern representing the two places in the form of cross combination into the quadrilateral continuous pattern. Because the images of symbols of the two places are too fixed, we improved the part of freehand sketching, scanned into the computer, and deconstructed and designed through AI, PS and other software, so that more people could understand the Chinese cultural system behind Shenzhen and Hong Kong through vision.
