laminate, wood, 2013, 15"w x 15"h x 0.75"d (each)
The Idea of Plane is a reinterpretation of the gap between 2D and 3D using material and graphics. I introduced veneer into this project to enrich the material selection and to expand the definition of color in my work. Color is not only pigment and hue; it can also be understood as surface treatment (e.g., marble). From a material aspect, laminate is perceived to be cheap and of poor quality, but people forget the possibility within it. Laminate is a sheet material that can be shaped and cut like paper to create pattern. In this project, I transformed laminate into a different visual language that combines three-dimensional shapes into interesting graphic objects that illustrate optical illusion, yin and yang, mimicry of nature and more.
