The Mold

Material  /  Books 

Year  /  November, 2012 

We learn from copy, this is a truth that everyone would agree with. But the truth that we actually design based on copy, will not be taken easily. What we neglect in this phenomenon is that we actually create our own autonomy through copying. 

許多技能的一開始,都是由模仿開始,從學寫字,畫素描,解算題,都是如此。模仿為學習的基石,這件事大家都不會有太多的異義。

但若要說,設計都是從模仿開始,恐怕很多人會感到有點彆扭。這個細微的心理感受,也正反映我們忘記了在模仿的過程中,其實不知不覺,產生一種創造與演化的型態。

When we copy, we make adjustments or progresses, to make it better, more personal, or maybe worse. Or we just simply do it in our own way, which might be different from the so called original. These factors influence the final result of our works, or us as a human being or a designer.

當我們模仿的時候,我們會根據當下的狀況微調那些過程,讓他更好,更個人,當然結果有可能會更糟。當我們用自己的方式去模仿的時候,其實就已經偏離原創了。

In this project, I copy objects by covering paper mache on the surfaces I need. So the paper became the mold of the object. One side of the mold is delicate and keeps the original form of the object. But the other side of it is conversely pretty rough, which already transform into another look.

在這個project裡,我用紙漿覆蓋在特定的表面來複製造型。所以紙變成了那些物品的模具,但同時那些物品也是紙的模具。


In this series, all the plates are made with different book, so the colors are slightly different. 
Also it represents that we all copy from different sources that cannot be recognised what they were in the end. And these are the foundation of the creativity.

這一系列的紙盤,是由各種不同的舊書製作出來的。選用書,是因為書本為最原始的學習記憶,書本因為墨與紙張年紀種類不同,各自呈現低調安靜的色階。
