Animated Chinese characters

  • ***( Watch the video and get a better sound experience)

  • For thousands of years, Chinese characters contain the life experience and knowledge of the Chinese people. 
    We can see the sun and moon in the qin and han dynasties and the stars in the tang and song dynasties. 
    No matter how Chinese characters have evolved and changed since ancient times, we cannot deny their importance to the continuation and connection of Chinese civilization.
    This series of dynamic projects interprets the meaning of Chinese characters in a dynamic form from multiple dimensions such as light and shadow, physics and movement principle. The core purpose is to let more people feel the charm of Chinese characters from a more three-dimensional perspective, whether it is simple or complex.​​​​​​​

  • “动态字体实验”整体在汉字自身含义的基础上用动画的形式表达;
    比如拿 “癌”举例,动画展示了癌细胞以点破面慢慢侵蚀“健康”直至“死亡”的线性过程,配以病变的音效,让“情绪”更加可视化。
