宇谲宙诡/kaleidoverse

名词 / yǔ jué zhòu guǐ

noun / kə-’lī-də-,vərs / ka·lei·do·verse

“宇谲宙诡” 由两个词混成:广义的“宇宙” 即物质与媒介的总称,而 “诡谲” 意为奇幻多彩、变化多端、令人捉摸不透。我的设计专长—版式设计、书籍艺术和纸雕塑—可以理解为三个独立的领域,也可以看作一个相互联系、相互链锁并相互转换的整体。因此,“宇谲宙诡” 这个编纂词完美地阐释了我在艺术与设计领域的探索与尝试。
“Kaleidoverse” is a portmanteau of “kaleido-” and “universe.” “kaleido-” is the root that originates from two Greek origins: “kal-” means beautiful and “eido-” means form. My specialties—typography, book art, and paper sculpture—can be three separate universes but they can also be intertwined as a whole galaxy, which is interconnected, interlocked, and interchangeable. Therefore, the made up word “kaleidoverse” perfectly embraces and interprets my art and design approaches.
