The idea behind “Échos” was to translate selected paintings from 1960’s Taiwan Modern Art era and beyond
into an oneiric immersive space in which people can dive in.
Using inspiration from textures and colors of the original reference paintings, “Échos” let the viewer experience the paintings from the inside and from a new perspective, exploring layers of colors and space in an enveloping environment.
The real challenge was to translate the strokes, the organic leaking textures of the paint and the soul of each paintings into a 3D sculpture, without copy pasting originals but using color moods and rythms of the paintings to evoke their respective atmospheres.
