2019 | Publication | PING PONG The Collective Comics Magazine #04



White is the richest colour that contains all the visible colours of light in spectroscopy. White represents diverse unique spirits in different countries and races. White stimulates an infinite imagination space in art theory. The colour contains a wealth of content and research value from countless aspects besides science, culture or philosophy. The encyclopedia of “Whiteness” re-demonstrates the “whites” that are often encountered or omitted in daily life in the most basic and direct way of illustration. The project redefines the colour through a seemingly-impossible fantasy as well as amusingly-quirky forms to create extra, broader and whiter white.

This is an explorative art project that re-introduces daily (white) objects in the strangest, whitest white. Artists and friends were invited to give ideas of what particular white object(s) they wished to be. Many interesting thoughts and imaginations were collected and re-envisaged in the project.

Material: Cardboard, Plastic, Acrylic, Clay

Three subjects from the illustration were deliberately picked and creatively represented in form of mini-installation. The exhibits enquire into the texture and scale of the commonly-known white objects and scenarios, and offers the audience an alternative engagement and new impression of such topics.

A. "WHITE is Tangible" Mini-installation 01

Have you ever touched WHITE?

Re-illustrating the famous creation “The Great Wave” with the richest density of colour in white and the shadow it creates, the mini-installation encourages the audience to embrace the power and calmness of a particular moment frozen in the context of time. The white shapes the form of an object and makes it visually tangible.

B. "WHITE is Chubby" Mini-installation 02

What's inside the WHITE?

It's the darkness that shapes the white. This is the white that makes the black spot perceivable. When you get closer, the black grows bigger to an extent that it eventually appears to vanish. The white is thus made visible instead.

C. "WHITE is Secret" Mini-installation 03

How do you describe the format of WHITE?

White merges the border between liquid and solid, softness and hardness as well as natural and polish. It embraces most matters and subjects.

D. "White Stories" Creative Diary 04

The book documents all the individual illustrations shown on the posters. Each element offers a curious imagination that challenges our perception of different ordinary subjects.
