- Dancing Calligraphy -
Chinese calligraphy is the writing of Chinese characters as an art form, combining visual art and interpretation of the literary meaning. Distinguished features of Chinese calligraphy emphasize on motion charged with dynamic life. According to Joan Stanley-Baker, "Calligraphy is sheer life experienced through energy in motion that is registered as traces on silk or paper, with time and rhythm in shifting spaces as its main ingredients."
In our visual expression of "Dancing Calligraphy," we aimed to portray the art form of calligraphy in a dynamic manner. The rhythm, form and energy in motion was realized through performance and captured in this digital photography series.
