The subway is a symbol of modern metropolis, and it is an incentive for many people to live in big cities. Subway is an advanced way of life in the new era, which can fully mobilize the vitality of the population. The subway has the city's most rhythmic breath, and also carries countless hopes for a better future. As a person living in a city group gradually connected by rail transportation, I always want to express this feeling in some way.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
How to express our observations and feelings has always been a mere thought. Until one day in IKEA, I saw a pair of young people who went to buy sheets. The expression of passion and hope for life gave a hint. We try to integrate the symbol of subway and some feelings related to it by processing the objects of daily life, and express them, just like life itself.
In ancient times, there were records of tying ropes, which are of little significance today. However, the act of tying ropes conveys the overall characteristics of that era. Today, the media means information. The real meaningful information is not the content, but the media itself. Since sheets are necessary for every new comer, we would better choose sheets as our medium.
创作过程 & 结果呈现
Creation Process & Result
We also went to IKEA to buy a set of sheets and pillows. Originally, we wanted to draw scenic spots and landmark buildings around the subway line, as well as some scenes and stories related to the subway. However, such an idea is too complicated and consumes too much energy. The feeling and passion will disappear in the pursuit of exquisite production. Later, in a small fabric accessories market near my home, I found many kinds of ribbons and buttons in different colors. So I bought a bunch of them and sewed the Guangzhou metro line map on them. Of course, when we chose ribbon styles for each line, with the common information for my wife and me. Finally, it became a record of some abstract integration of our life in Guangzhou in 2012.
如何理解项目与“人文湾区 ∙ 温暖的设计”这一主题的关联性？
How does the project reflect the exhibition theme "Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design"?
In the future, the construction of urban community in GBA will focus on the combination of existing space resources, from physical construction to the connection between space and spiritual life. Subway will be the collaterals, which will continue give more spiritual and cultural core to the better city life. For many people, the subway will also be a clue of their life.
We use such a symbolic work to record our past life in our city, and leave room for future nomadism. This is not a design with a clear purpose, but it can be regarded as a "warm hint" for others.
