Kitchen Symphony

467e302b

“Kitchen Symphony” is a pattern collection inspired by Chinese cooking, where all ingredients and sauces dance passionately with each other, just like a symphony performance where various instruments complement and contrast with each other, creating the ultimate harmony.

PROCESS

Phase1--Research

597d7d1c

“Colour”, “smell”, and “taste”— the fundamental ways to appreciate food in Chinese culture. Indeed, cooking itself is a type of art: the colours of the ingredients, the various shapes resulted from different ways of cutting, the rich smell of a variety of sauces and herbs… I’ve always been fascinated by the process of cooking, even more then the final result.

With this project, I hope to explore the visual aspect of Chinese cooking , creating patterns to tell the most ordinary yet sophisticated story of Chinese culture.

Phase2--Drawing & Digitization

I classified my drawings into three groups related to the process of cooking: ingredients, sauces, and cooking utensils. Instead of drawing with hand, I drew all the elements with my tablet, which I feel more comfortable to use. The ingredients are more organic, while the others are more geometric, which I hope will give the pattern some interesting contrast. I haven't got time to play with the colours, but I guess I'll save it to the next step when I start to mix different forms.
