This work is based on “Capitalise on post”, a well-known piece of art in Chinese calligraphy. “Words in space” converts the two-dimensional planes of the original work into three-dimensional characters. This makes the text virtually hover in space. Furthermore, the metal-lic finish combines the soft flow of traditional characters with an industrial touch, symbolising modernity and strength. Tradition and modernity is one of the many contrasts which provide access to the work. The text appears dynamic and static at the same time and combines large and small, as well as delicate and strong characters.
