「be*friend」書籍創作計劃Series 2.03

這系列的第三本作品,今年送給友人的生日禮物。由於朋友比較低調,所以送給他的這本筆記本也用了深藍色的絨面作封面,每頁親手撕這毛邊書口,整本書subtle得來,也很decent,很合他的性格。我知道他不想公開自己的樣貌於社交平台,所以我並沒有把第一頁畫他的人像素描(哈,其實那張畫才是全書亮點呢,我覺得我還是寶刀未老,畫得很似)Post出來。

Friends* Artist’s Notes

“A friend in need is a friend indeed.”

If everyone were a book‭, ‬what kind of book would you be‭? ‬

These seven books are‭ ‬my own interpretation of my seven friends in London‭. The totality of their attitudes, interests, behavioral patterns, emotional responses, and some of my own expectation to them are re-interpreted in these books. ‬The personality of each of them is expressed through book structure and materials‭/ ‬paper‭. ‬Each book shows the quality of existing as‭ ‬a person‭. ‬‭‬When they go together‭, ‬they start to influence and interact with each other‭. ‬‭‬Their‭ ‬behavioral‭ ‬patterns and emotional responses‭ ‬could be felt by the experience of physical and tactile reading‭ ‬of these books‭. ‬

The title of this project is “be*friend” which means, “act as a friend”. Honestly, I didn’t know them for a long period of time, just about half a year; I even don’t understand them thoroughly; but I don’t think it is a problem. I just know that I made these friends wholeheartedly. I think it’s enough. At least, they occupied a place somewhere in my heart. I remember to make presents for them in Christmas or their own birthdays. All of us are international students, I truly want to give them a kind of warmth in these important dates, as I understand no one can get used to “lonely”. No one deserved to be alone.

Main Aims:
¹Book as gifts to my friends in London
²To acquire the knowledge of using structure and materials of books (instead of text & image) to express and interpret one’s personality and attitude
³To set my own language of structure & materials

書就是… A Book is…


一片紙不但表現時間,也表現空間。而一片片的紙張組合起來的書就是一個高深的容器,盛滿文字,既能從中不斷汲取智慧,又能裝入無限的智慧。

A piece of paper reflects not only time but also space. Books are formed by binding papers together to become containers of words that serve as a reservoir as well as a spring of wisdom.
