Classics of Mountain and Sea

2018

 

Classics of Mountain and Sea is a compilation of myths about geography surrounding ancient China. It contains extensive records of medicines, animals, geographical features of different areas organised along two board sections - Classics of Mountain, and Classics of Sea. Weird as it appears to be, the Classics of Mountain and Sea greatly fuelled our imagination of the unknown world, connected through the sea, stretching far beyond. Unfortunately, the remnants of the Classics today contain a description in words only as the original graphical illustrations were lost over more than a thousand years’ time. Absorbing the ingredient from the Classics, utilising modern days chemical process relating to lights and its reappearance, I intended to bring back the unknown world.​
