Concept / “Traveling-Chair project” is a project to illuminate the sentimental connection between human being and inanimate objects. By adding a new and important step to the standard chair manufacturing process, a group of same chairs will gain their own memories and imprints and become unique from one another.
Process / Chairs were placed separately in different environments for several months. Each chair was stained in a unique and unpredictable manner by its natural environment and thus acquired "un-copy-able" memories. After this process, the memories and stains of chairs would be preserved by special paint. Moreover, each chairs would equipped with “Production Resume” in certification and video format, which tells how the chair went through its journey. In this way, what I was purveying were not merely attractive furniture but also the stories behind.
Value / The project brings the beautiful marks, which acted upon by time, from natural environments to our urban daily life. The preserved marks of the chair unroll its uniqueness when placed with other standard, accurate, massively produced articles. With the memories, the “Traveling-Chair” will arouse the urbanites’ desire of embracing the natural.
