Classic of Mountain and Sea

June 2018

Classic of Mountains and Seas is a compilation of myths about the geography of ancient China. It contains extensive records of medicines, animals, geographical features of different areas organized along two board sections - Classic of Mountains, and Classic of Seas. Weird as it appears to be, the Classic of Mountains and Seas is a sign of changing relationship between ancient human and nature in which the former started out to reach and explore the later. However, it is unfortunate that the remnants of the Classics today contain description only in words as the original drawings were lost for more than a thousand years. Absorbing the elements from the Classics, I intend to bring back the unknown world against the backdrop of environmental pollution and global warming today, with an aim to reflex on the relationship between human and the nature.
