無論西方或東方,一般插花、花藝或花道,都在尋求一種外在裝飾的平衡,或者心靈的調適。插花的過程中是以人的美感去左右花間的平衡與擺設,除了花彼此間的美感平衡,也希望探討人與花彼此,這種創作者與被創作物間的關係。


作品將做成像是不倒翁般,會隨之傾斜的花瓶,人在插花的過程中也需要保持花瓶的平衡,成為一種花、花瓶與人三向溝通的方式。

Whether the West or the East, the flower arrangement is looking for a balance of external decoration, or relieve stress. In the process, creators will design the set of form and the balance between plants, In addition to the balance of flowers, I hope to explore the relationship deeply between the flower arrangement creator and the creation.

The "Swing" like a tumbler, it's a tilted vase, people in the process of flower arrangement also need to maintain the balance of the vase, plants and creator. It will be a three-way communication.
