Japanese inspired design (and asian influenced design) always, always, always inspires me. It makes me want to drop everything and make something new. The colors (or the lack thereof), layout and aesthetic just makes me extremely enthusiastic about design.
This is Yi-Hsuan Li’s entry on Three Mountains, a spiritual quest of an artist laid bare in minimal black strokes, visualizing the journey we all take in search of that one thing that keeps us going:
One mountain, two mountains, three mountains. The journeys of artists are over countless mountains. We peek between the self, the works and the world. We inquire into the essence, the meaning and the representation of works. On the long journey, searching, exploring and experiencing, we realize arts is more than an mountain—objective. It is mist—ambiguous. It is the journey, the process, the presence—abundant. We are on the way, always.
Three years, three months, three days. Time leads us to climb over the slopes and cliffs in the process. We are traveling through paper and pages, roaming around in the spectacular scenes, or floating in the river of images.
