This project shows an early stage of my interest in form study. Based on current language studies, Chinese character is a famous representative that is designed based on the forms of objects. Throughout the thousands of years, the development of the character transformed from hieroglyphic to logogram.
The example above shows a great evidence of how form is involved in Chinese character. The character “雨 (rain)” looks like rain dots under a piece of cloud. There are 17 examples in this animation project shows the transformation between the objects and the characters.
