"Taizu" 
Understanding of Chinese Taoism philosophy
"Taizu" is the name of our design, it is from a worhshop organized by Jiangnan University and Zurich University of Arts.We exchanged our opinion of culture, design, and philosophy. End up with series of design work.

The theme of this workshop is “Being and Non-being” from Chinese Taoism philosophy.




We had a discussion of Taoism philosophy:

Nature
Man respect nature, obey the rules of nature

Everything has two sides
Good and Evil, hard and easy, love and hate... They are connected and do not just look at only one side. See the whole.
Being is one side, No-being is the whole.

Tao
Tao in Chinese means Way. If you find the way of life, you find the essence of Tao.


Taoism philosophy stress the power of water, water is peaceful and humble. Then we had a brainstorm about water.
