Book In terms of book, I think many things can represent it. Such as book is information/media/form, but the first come to my mind is influence. I think book is a kind of influence. Through reading books, you can either change your definition/recognition/understanding of something or boarden your horizon. It’s nothing about right or wrong, it’s about process and result.
I remember when I was 12, at the age of thinking everything in the world are pure. I read a book which reflect the reality about relationship, love and work which influence me a lot. When I realized, I found my worldview has changed.
So I think as for the readers, they will have two ways of influence. One is change(mind/view/horizon), and the other is self-examination. In the same way, when it comes to the writers, they will write their works with two purposes, influence and allude.
In sum, I think the book is influence and it has two ways. So I want to express it with REFRACTION AND REFLECTION.
1ST THOUGHT (THOUGHT) - BOOK
2ND THOUGHT (IDEA) - INFLUENCE
3RD THOUGHT (EXPRESSION) – REFRACTION AND REFLECTION
Use a wood as the object, and different shapes of wood as the mirror image. Through this I want to express the book, as a medium, can reflect something, but not itself. Maybe in other form or with only limited aspect(bright/dark). And our readers can see our own strong point or shortage, feeling proud or losing confident. That’s all the media do.
