The Special Collection Case @ Robinson Library, N.C.L.

IMG_20150518_011150

 

In order to let the <20th Century Pamphlets> (the name of one special collection in the library) souvenirs be clearly noticed by the visitors, including the bookmarks, the brochures and the postcards. It would be helpful if each of the three glass boards is moved up until the top one reaches the ceiling of the case. Then Unload the top one and reload it above the ground of the case in a position where it can separate the current layout on the ground floor, and the ones going to be exhibited, namely, the Prototype. Thus the Prototype will be shown on the new second floor counting from the ground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The current structure makes it easy to adjust due to its flexible assembly on the wall. Simply pull it out and then plug into a proper height following the instructions above.

红色贵族:Red and Royalty

The phrase <红色贵族> has already been wrongly used for quite a long time in China, which always relates to Communism, the Party, and the Money.

It’s time to find its original meaning.

Coincident with its direct translation (red royalty), the red and the royalty are two crucial parts in CHINESE culture.

It is widely agreed that the colour RED is the representative of CHINA (not knowing if there are other sovereignty which has the similar taste). It means positivity, energy, happiness and liveliness. No surprise that People’s Republic of China chooses it as the main colour for the Five-Star-Red-Flag, the symbol of a sovereignty.

Royalty: Unlike that some westerners despise China as no royal symbols, there are actually FLUID representations about royalty, which manifest themselves as the change/switch of dynasties.In each dynasty period, a family with a specific surname governs the whole land and allocates the resources to the relatives within. Thus in parallel with Western civilizations, Royalty is also an inherent element of Chinese culture.

<赤色为朱> is a phrase to describe the colour RED. 朱 is an expression with royal implications. The evidence can be found in phrase such as <朱批>, which means the Palace Memorial commented by an emperor.

Coincidently called memorial again, this document is made up of paper always folded several times. It’s a formal report from a departmental official, to inform the emperor what has happened within the official’s responsibility, and to let the emperor decide what should be done or if there is anything that needs to be improved.

<朱批> is a most persuasive expression to prove the relationship between the red and the royalty.

Automobile Advanced: Decoration and Ritual

While wheels make an automobile civic, decorations add the ritual element—that’s the one function of decoration: They can be holy, supreme and innocent.

The Story of The Glass (2): Respect

Glass Wave

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UK’s National Glass Centre/Heritage of Glass Making

The story of the glass is the story of the sand and the water.

The sand makes it, and the water resembles it. The glass is the gift of the land and the sea.

In one exhibition of National Glass Centre, the glass was blown into bottle like shape, and placed into the form of wave.

It perfectly combines its heritage.

——–

Glass has simple use.

A simple glass board can be meaningful. It not only protects the documents underneath, but makes the memory intact. It’s like the case in museums or libraries, though it’s flat.

It is always placed by Chinese governmental veterans on their desks, though it seems as if they have brought their office home. This is because some of them have to stay up at night to work. They are worth respected.

Cinematography 3: Back to the Seriousness

Comparative architecture:

Semper’s Misinterpretation: The classic discourse by Semper about how to anatomize architecture, namely, the four elements including the hearth, the enclosure, the roof and the mound seems to be inappropriate when applying to Asian architecture, though he did made several examples from China. Furthermore, he elaborated this framework into his emphasis on tectonic thinking, which have been cited by the followers naming it “joint”—-this, however seems to be similar to the essence of ancient Chinese architecture.

  The integration: Unlike what Semper has asserted that the four elements manifest themselves as separated in China, the joint, most typically called mortise and tenon, shows its significance in connecting them, though many parts of them are hidden into the interior of a building (see below the parts underneath the roof that connect the beams and pillars). Thus rather than separating among one another, these four elements have been integrated by the joint, though in an implicit and invisible way from outside.


(Adapted from: http://www.gzylw.com/uploadpic/News/201111593731767.jpg)

        The flexibility: Semper emphasizes the order in the real world that affect the organization of architecture, the order between the ruler and the ruled. Then he makes comparison to it on flexibility and agility and asserts they don’t exist in China. In fact, in China the flexibility is as common as the order and the joint part is exactly its manifestation. The barriers below are mainly comprised of the cuboids and the cylinder wooden dowels—as the joints. Though the latters are just the fake mortise and tenon, they do show some flexibility like the adjustment of the height, and the direction, depending on how the holes are drilled, and how many cuboids are used.

Back to the Seriousness:

Why are films made?—-to record something in order to remember perhaps.

Then what should be remembered in terms of the Ancient Chinese architecture—-these mere structures, or the creators of these structures?

Structures can still be found, at heritage sites, or be replicated,  based on sketches but those people—they will never be alive forever.

They should be remembered.

However within these group, people are not that the same, in terms of their background and social status. What’s more, they conflict against each other, just because of the social hierarchies. Then how  to incorporate them within one film and achieve the harmony?

It starts with the upper (at the post’s beginning),

and it might be harmonized through adding subtitles and sound effects.

 

Cinematography 2: Seriousness to Happiness

The next show is the proof of the happiness.

They are also the raw materials for making a film.

The shameful past is replaced by the reconciliation at present. It happens at Newcastle Quayside Market.

Immigrants meet in the new community. Together they create happiness, but never forget the past.  Immigrants must be one topic of the film.

Past & Present

 

 

Cinematography 1: Serious Issues

There is no story in today’s show. There are only serious issues which reflect the shameful past.

With the set of objects in the films sending to who they should belong to, meaning has been created, as part of the curing process.

There is a lack of scripts, because scripts might destruct the somberness.

The seriousness can transfer itself into happiness, depending on how people deal with the past, and manipulate the present meaning.

The happiness is the theme of the next show.

To be continued.
