This is a group discussion of interdisciplinary type design experience. A collective magazine featuring a sculpture of time made by me based on illuminated manuscript style book design with a modern twist in its photography.
Everyone has their own time. When you were young, it is not very easy to feel that time is going forward. However, when you realize it, time is already past. You will feel that time goes faster when you get older. Your time will disappear at the end of your life. Although you will be gone, it will leave a mark to prove that you have been here in the world.
In this project, I played different roles: the artist (sculpture), the concept creator, the photographer, the videographer, the facilitator of discussion, the transcriber of the conversation, the editor of the texts recorded, the designer and the book binder.
When you look at the integral ice sculpture, you can’t see the change of melting immediately. It just like you couldn’t feel the movement of time when you were young. When you started to realize the changes, it will be more obverse. The speed of melting will be faster, which represents how you would feel about the time when you get older. The ice will melt into the water at the end, which means the period of your time. The ice will finally become water, left on the ground, but the water print will be left on the surface. Although your time is ended, you still left something behind to the world.
