国美:被信任是一种快乐/States and Beauty: Happy to Be Trusted

二乔

Faces seem to be similar, if from a same region.

Could there be any research on how the variable—-the states contribute to what is defined as beauty ?

国美(Gome)is a company which mainly sells electric appliances. The two characters 国美, can be interpreted as the states and the beauty as its representation. It implies that the nation can be a factor to define the beauty.

“被信任是一种快乐” is its ad. slogan, meaning happy to be trusted. It implies that happiness and trust have something to do with the defining process.

In China, it is widely acknowledged that 西施 (Xi, Shi), a beauty living in Warring States period ranks no. 1, in nearly all beauty ranking systems, and coincidently, Warring States period is a time when states have fierce conflicts and before the final unification is achieved.

This is the historical context how the Chinese classical beauty is generated.

Legacy around 西施 remains and spreads, including how she makes recluse with her lover 范蠡, a business man, and most of all, a hero in helping build up a state.

Can there be a modern/post-modern 西施 in China?

The two images come from:

The first one shows a flower called Paeonia suffruticosa, which is regarded as an informal representation as the state of People’s Republic of China.

The second one is an animal called  Sanguinolaria diphos. It looks like tongues and people across Taiwan Strait both call it the tongue of 西施。

Welcome to Newcastle—-A City of Sanctuary

Full ideas can be found here:

Action plan:

1. Apply the Funding from the Arts Council England

2. Liaise Newcastle University’s Robinson Library, Fine Art Department in the School of Arts and Cultures,  School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, City of Sanctuary (a charity)’s School of Sanctuary Initiative in Newcastle city, and Newcastle’s City Council to implement the scheme.

3. Create a proper visiting plan for refugees, the identity cards, the afterwards interview, the settling, the feedback, the tracking record for their future status after the visit, with excellent event management skills

Let’s play treasure hunting game and find the way back/towards home.




The winner can fill the colour in the frame and then choose a room to hang it on.

This process is how the healing effect works—-finding way back/towards home, sometimes is also a process of curing the scar in one’s heart.

Here, the split paper edge represents the refugees’ psychological trauma, such as PTSD.

This map and drawing blueprint derives from Cadbury World’s outreach brochure. It emphasizes the spirit of community.

Initiate the VI System for Newcastle University,

The Brochure Label

If it is needed:



The size of the brochure label can be zoomed depending on how large the actual brochures are; The Special Collections label is to stick on the support of the postcards going to be exhibited. It is 4 (h)*7 (w) cm large; There is a need to consult with UK’s new government after the recent election, about whether such a postal card design is permitted or not  (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/2010-to-2015-government-policy-postal-service-reform/2010-to-2015-government-policy-postal-service-reform).

All in all, these should all belong to the Newcastle University’s potential VI system. They follow a Red (RGB: 232, 40, 44) and a Blue (RGB: 0, 74, 130) principle, which should be in accordance with the university’s coat of arms. However, the exact setting of such a red and blue needs to be confirmed by the university’s marketing and outreach department or equivalent.

The Printer Case @ Robinson Library, N.C.L.

What needs to be adjusted is the height of the two glass boards within: In order to let the Prototype exhibition (which will be put on the ground floor within the case), especially the label part (an A4 paper with about 50 degrees’ angle to the ground) be conveniently noticed from above, these two boards need to be moved up at least 10 cm.  Here is the exhibition:




Here is the detail of the label:

What Do We Benefit from Cross-Strait (Re)unification?

Unnamed QQ Screenshot20150514111344

Take, the creative enterprise into consideration:

DOMO is a Taiwanese team in game industry, whose production is second to none, largely due to the typical and classical Chinese elements it manages to incorporate into the creating process. What’s more, such elements have magical effects, fabricating virtual narratives that always echo with what is happening in reality.

What is upset however, is the fact that due to the current political tensions, the PC game issue from Softstar Entertainment Inc. (where DOMO works for and with) can not achieve a really free and equal entry cross Taiwan strait. This means, for customers from the Mainland China (let’s temporarily call it like this), a delay in obtaining such game products. Due to this, some crazy fans have to instead, consume the pirates, which harm both the economic interests and intellectual property of the company.

Thus from this fact, it is obvious what we can benefit from Cross-Strait (Re)unification.

Here are the details which shows at the beginning.
