This work is a combination of 35 individual small works. Starting from the number 0 in the middle, other works were drawn sequentially through calculations according to the rules I designed. There is a relationship and logic between every two adjacent individual works. Each color block in each individual work also has their relationship and logic. The composition of the work is 35 pieces in a cycle and connected end to end, which is a work that can be extended indefinitely.
This artwork belongs to my series of solo exhibition critique of Sensibility.
Sensibility is subjective, unstable, superficial, and intuitive. Sensibility can make us feel nature, but we cannot understand and use nature by this way. Through reason, people have created the greatest faith and power in human history, science. I use rational thinking to create works of art through experimental scientific methods. Use logic and mathematics to construct abstract visual information.
Sensitivity is not special, and it can also be analyzed and processed through perceptual methods. Usually people are willing to believe that emotion cannot be calculated, and emotion and reason are independent of each other. In fact, people believe that the reason emotions cannot be analyzed is that the human brain can only make people feel limited information at the same time. The world is extremely simple, because the rules of the world can be condensed into several symbols through mathematics. The world is extremely complicated, because it is superimposed by a large number of basic rules, making it difficult for humans who can only see the surface to trace their origins.
A rational method can eliminate the discomfort caused by the perception caused by the abstract works to the audience. Abstract works often cause viewers' misunderstanding. The audience will feel that the work is very strange and cause a series of gaps. Familiarity comes from understanding and controllability. Logic and mathematics are tools that people use to understand and use the world more easily. In order to test the relationship between familiarity and comprehensibility, I created a series of works using logic and mathematical rules. It is not difficult to draw this conclusion through experiments. The familiarity gained from the visual information of a work will be enhanced with the understanding of the production methods, logic laws and mathematical operations behind it.
This system and calculation are more important than physical works. It can be said that this production method, which consists of logic and mathematics, is the work itself, and the physical works is only a by-product of them.
