People read Art
People read Tarot
The Empress/ Queen of Swords
People read symbol and then get the meaning behind it
This process very close to reading artwork, especially abstract artwork
So I create this project: Fortune Telling with Art
I choose an artwork from Wassily Kandinsky—-Composition VIII. There are so many symbols in his works: dots, lines, circles, rectangles, triangles… Using iphone as my “desk”; Everytime people shack the iphone, programming will generate a part of Composition VIII as “card”.
Kandinsky wrote a book named” Pont and Line to Plane”
In this book, he analyzed every single element and the meaning behind them. The positions and colors are also a part of artist’s intention that would bring the meaning.
