Language, Bridge, Trace

In this world full of codes, I am exploring the relation between different coding systems and the possibility for them to communicate with each other.

Our language is a highly complex coding system. I went back to one of the most influential books, the Bible, and transformed the words into my own coding system. I use the binary code as a bridge to transform the language into coordinates, and the outcome are solid three-dimensional forms, which can be seen, read and touched, thereby creating a new relationship between language and humans.

  • We are living in a world full of codes: language, computers and even the DNA inside our body, everything we've seen, heard or touched all have a direct relationship with coding systems. More interestingly, different coding systems can communicate with and transform each other. I am interested in the relationship between different coding systems and the relationship between coding systems and humans. In my practice, I am trying to transform language from abstract symbols into a solid form which can be seen, read and touched, thereby creating a new relationship between language and humans.
