Ongoing Project Plan

Spirit of Travel - Open This Page

Concept and Design

Travelling is like reading a novel; it is like finding inspiration through adventure. Travelling is also a way of identifying and understanding yourself of who you actually are.

Newspapers are a special type of material, which are full of emotions and messages. Through knitting, I would like to produce newspaper yarns in a number of different styles by incorporating a series of installations that I have designed.

I would like to invite the global travellers to send newspapers to me from all around the world. These newspapers, consisting memories of journeys and stories will create a new story, a fantastic and adventurous journey.

The viewer may not read the full articles in the newspapers, however I hope that people would find the meaning of the words that are used to report the daily news in the abstracts to find out which part of the global these headline stories come from.

Encourage us to open this page.

The main artwork will be displayed on the middle of 3 floor staircase and then extend to ceiling. I will use knitting techniques and newspaper yarn to create this 3D installation without using frames. The inspiration comes from personal travelling experiences and the imagination of newspaper images and articles from around the world. Mix with foreign architects, animals, luggage which brings back many travelling memories and compass. 

I plan to decorate the exhibition space to the library scenario. And I will exhibit the newspapers along the wall coming with some knitted newspaper 3D installation. I hope this space could inspire people to bring back their memories of travelling, also evoke the imaginations and expectations of foreign languages and exotic cities from this space. 

Conclusion

From now, I already received some newspapers from New York, Amsterdam, Malta, Korea, Thailand and Japan…etc. These newspapers are sent by travellers who are willing to join this project from around the world. These newspapers come from many different languages, various colours and textures of papers. I am still collecting the materials, hope I can get more stories and memories from all over the world.
