Junchao Yang received a Master of Science in Advanced Architecture Design degree from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Through his exploration of technology, he finds his interest in the various ways of recreation of the common object and modern representation of traditional narratives.
Composition 017 is a series of experimental representation of a three-dimension phoenix.
Composition 017a is a capture of motion as it is rising from mist and river. It is ideation of unified contradictory; while Composition 017c is a more technical shot of this creature.
The design of the Phoenix is developed from an aggregation of the variation of a simple motif. The freeform surface and rational structure harmonize in this motif, showcasing a sense of both chaos and order.
The three-dimensional combination of the motif deconstructs the anatomy of the Phoenix and create a different level of complexity and consistency.
While we design this enormous composition in three-dimension, we use an isometric projection of this piece to capture the momentum of this gigantic creature while keeping an oppressing but solemn still.
The juxtaposition of modern representation technique and traditional figure give this composition a dichotomous harmony.
