DESCRIPTION/COMMENTARY
Feng Chen’s current series, 7 Real Magic Books, 2016, employs contemporary technology in the characteristically light, but tensile carbon fiber. The properties of carbon fibers, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports. Nevertheless, it is a material that still requires craftmanship and the process of turning it into an extremely rigid form can only be hand-made. In the series, Feng uses carbon fiber combined with plastic resin to turn the malleable fiber onto a sculptural expression of images taken from ancient texts. Feng introduces here a discussion about an ancient type of technology and magic. Chinese alchemy, Chinese astrology, Chan (Zen) Buddhism, several martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine, feng shui, and many styles of qigong have been intertwined with Taoism throughout history. ‘Taoist Magic Figure’ refers to Taoist writings of good auspicious: almost indecipherable to the viewers, these writings lay suspended between science and superstition.
冯晨目前的系列:“七本真实存在的魔法书—2016”使用了轻而具有拉伸力的碳纤维科技。碳纤维的性能具有高坚韧性、高拉伸力、重量轻,使其在航空航天,土木工程,军事和赛车领域被广泛运用。然而,这种材料仍然需要手工作业,将它转变为极强韧的形式的加工过程只能通过手工完成。在这个系列中,冯晨结合碳纤维和合成树脂,使可塑性纤维转化为从古代文本中获取的图像的雕塑性表达。冯晨在这里引入了对古老的科技和魔法的讨论。中国的方术、星象学、禅、武术、传统中药、风水和气功的多种流派在历史中和道教相互交织。“道家符咒“指的是道家吉语的书写:它们对观众来说是几乎难以解读的,这些书写悬置与科学和迷信之间。
