the man, 2020
This project is inspired by DaVinci's Vitruvian Man. His drawing of a man as part of a circle and a square, not only is the solution of an ancient riddle of squaring the circle, but captures the perfection of the human body, demonstrating that the Renaissance man, as God's supreme creation, is the perfect geometric model of the nature itself.
In my work, I explore this idea by creating circular spaces of self, in which my mind is taken away into a back and forward looseness, and squaring these silk prints in various places in nature to probe if the measurements of man are indeed distributed in nature as believed. Seeing that body is the measure of all things - of all things the measure is man.
