“Big, or Small” exhibition is an experimental subject, organized by Mei Shuzhi and co-curated by Lian Jie and Li Xibin. The exhibition is a study about Chinese scale relationship, which explores the position of Chinese in the current design context. We also attempt to search the original logic of new visual language through this process.
“Big, or Small_RGB” video is a dynamic display at this exhibition. It shows the “forced invasion” of Chinese to the Western context in the form of video, and explores the establishment of the visual presentation state of Chinese in the context of the western languages design system. “Big, or Small – RGB” video consists of 26 translated clips, capturing the instant moment of translation between English to Chinese by Google Translate APP. What’s important is that these contents are generated by machines rather than human beings. Because of the imprecision and randomness resulted in machine grabbing, the conflict between Chinese and Western languages is strange, disordered and playful.
