Jia 家, 2012 - I started from the concept of home. The ideogram 家 jia means both home and family. Family is very important in Chinese culture. It represents a miniature of the perfect society, a model that bares the rules of the most ancient customs of Chinese culture. It is not a case that the legacy of Confucius has many precise instructions on the behavior of each member as a premise to living in a good society. Therefore the house I imagined is a sheltered space, yet transparent, where people are visible to anyone in their bodily form. The subjects represents the members of a family.
