Yu-Chi Chang. Piece: Bangle, 2008. Mixed media. My initial inspiration came from the growth pattern of moss – moss plants always grow together, always as a group, and in a humid environment. They interact with each other and are closely linked. Nature is fantastic and full of unique forms, which have their own patterns, structures and qualities. 
. 
. In my childhood I used to go walking on the mountains with my parents, the forest made an impression on me, the trees were huge and some of them were being invaded by other plants. Some dead trees were abandoned, but different plants were still living in them, they managed to survive even though they lived in very poor conditions. 
. 
. The materials I use are wood, silver and resin. Wood is the main material of my work, and I use hand-saw and chisels to show the different grains and textures in the three-dimensional form. The purpose of inlaying silver into wood is to express symbiosis, it can relate to human life or to the water that nourishes moss and wood. I decide which colours to use by “Wu Xing”, the representation of the five elements in Chinese culture – in my work I aim to combine oriental cultural ideas with western design aesthetics..
