 “Touching Discussion”

The Concept is to express the way ideas are carried out between people with reference to Chinese symbolism of square means rectangular earth while circle means orbicular sky. There are two left hands triangulated with the third element of the “respect” character. Sometimes people come to a standstill or roadblock and have to overcome their differences to reach a common goal. A dialogue or discussion sometimes leads to arguments or compromises but it is important to see beyond and work together to get something done. Ultimately, it requires people to use their hands to make something. Tools are extensions of our hands and our hands are tools of our minds.

There are two left hands instead of three.Triangulation is important so the third element could be this “respect” character. The hands are two left hands, so they are obviously from two different people. Both hands are Back to Back so they are facing the world, facing outward, to help each other and the world better, not facing inward which could be interpreted as a challenge like arm wrestling.

Black and white to express opposites elements like the Yin and Yang, dual forces, two hands from two different people even though the hands are similar. The old wall texture because the hands are going to weather anyway and this can give an appearance of already worn in or to say that the old city was built by hands and made to last. it is a way of bringing attention to this man made and natural change occurring in our cities before we blindly destroy the foundations of our history and culture in the name of progress The proposed texture reminds us that our environment built from our history must be respected.
