He is a Chinese contemporary artist. His work ‘Boat’ which consists of over 8000 rice paper forms a boat. Within this piece he highlights the idea of a boat as metaphor for travel, East and West, Life and Death. This work is full of traditions, as there is a saying that after the death, to get to the afterlife the dead need to travel in the boat to get into the peace.

This work has influenced my project, not only with the material that is used, but with the idea of cycles, that everything is cyclical as emphasized in the ‘Boat’. It also illustrates the idea of East meets West.
