Yi-jing Within Time: The Implication of Yi-jing Into Moving Image Medium
Yi-Jing [意境] is a signifi cant classic Chinese art concept that might be broadly understood as a certain conceptual and perceptual communication between artists and viewers. It was originally derived from Chinese poetry and was then adapted by a range of classical art forms such as Chinese painting and calligraphy. This project sets out to explore the notion of Yi-Jing within time and movement with its primary focus on video editing and digital manipulation. The research is intended to offer an alternative perspective to the appreciation of moving image. The project uses contemporary moving image mediums to reveal the uniqueness inherent within Chinese aesthetic values and to strengthen their accessibility to a western audience. It is hoped that the project might potentially open up a contemporary universal context for Yi-Jing and its application through the advancement of contemporary technology.
