I took Piet Mondrian and 毛泽东 Mao Tse-tung to symbolize how far deconstruction could go by taking two ends, from the lowest to the highest on a vertical scale, or from the environment to the human thought (from soil to soul): by re-ordering nature, Mondrian certainly helped to industrialize our food production (this is a personal assumption) while on the other end, peasants re-eductated Chinese people to erase 100 years of imperialism and capitalism (this is a fact). Deconstruction is an integral part of our evolution: deconstruct what has been constructed to build simpler and better.
With this artwork, I tried to show that deconstructing a solid and opaque structure was aimed to look at the essential, the source or the inside beauty of an object as through the transparency of a stained glass. Breaking down complex structures into more simplified forms is a pre-requisite step to achieve optimal results. This cerebral process can be used not only on objects but also anywhere and anytime, nearly everyday, from architecture to text (SMS).
