Ce’

Inspired by a Chinese legend that the gift of giving comes from studying the objects of nature, the images of Ce’ were created from collected found organic material and arranged into “sentences” to read as visual language. Ce’ is about reading nature’s form, gestures, and movements as a written language. This series of books takes the reader through an experience much like a Taoist philosophical journey.
