9 squares : one-thousand-word text 1999

9 square Mode, which is characterized by the nine panes to set the position of the pen to the paper, is a method to help Chinese calligraphy beginners to master the calligraphic structures. The concept of nine panes comes from the constellation divisions in Chinese ancient astronomy. In fact, to Chinese people, one Chinese character is as isomorphic as the whole universe.

This works turns the nine divisions to the concept of geomantic omen. The TV screens replacing the nice panes are placed at nine spots. Visitors can go through the Chinese characters and the calligraphy performance can be done in the space of the whole room.
