Evolution of Language
Last fall, I spent 100 days analyzing the evolution of Chinese writing from ~500BC to today. Final animations show the transformation of some of my favorite words over thousands of years. Through this study, I was amazed by the myriad of ways language, meaning, and form have changed and stayed the same across time.
This project is dedicated to my grandfather, who lived a beautiful life and devoted the last decade of it to studying the art form of calligraphy.
