Poetics of Harmony
Publication | Artist Book
Poetics of Harmony is an artistic interpretation on the universal order of Taoist Cosmology and Internal Alchemy. The harmonious relations among the different cosmological configurations that intervene between the Tao and the "ten thousand things” are illustrated in the well-known WuJi diagram and this diagram becomes the fundamental reference for this project.
The project is split into 3 sections, each explaining the various component of harmony as explained by Taoists. The first book presents about the Void and how Yin and Yang are born out of the void. The second book traced the patterns of how one element produces or controls the other, based on the grid of Loshu diagram. The last book presents on the concept of triple unity through a series of papercuts.
