  • 1. VIS220 GRAPHIC DESIGN I — PROCESS AND FUNDAMENTALS Buildings, mountains and streams Digital photo manipulation Bryan Lim, 2008 The approach for this project has been deeply inspired by Song Dynasty’s quinessential landscape painting “Travellers amidst mountains and streams” by Fan Kuan. Painted in the monumental style, Fan Kuan expressed the Taoist concept of universailty — every single creation all working dynamically together, integrated as a single whole. In this concept, no creation is greater than the other, not even humans. When approaching Fan Kuan’s painting, one would feel small in the majesty and grandeur of nature. In my photo manipulation piece, I have used Fan Kuan’s painting to speak of human’s incessant desire to manipulate, control and subdue nature. All around Singapore we see greenery, earning ourselves the name “Garden City”. Unfortunately, most of what we know as nature here in Singapore are really man-made nature environments. The concept of a garden is about artificiality; it is about recreating natural environment according to our will. Without nature being allowed to grow naturally, can it still be considered nature? Through the harsh disjuncture of our urban buildings amidst a natural landscape, I hope to explore the infinite possibilities of a landscape when we subdue nature within our complete control.
