Leisure / Die chinesische Kultur


The Chinese have pursued a state of leisure since time immemorial. As for the Chinese character "Xian", it seems like the wood in the door which shows the restriction. After carefully thought, I got the meaning of leisure, then more interesting and meaningful space will come up. So on the poster, a man opens the cage to break free. It lets him to connect with the free-floating cloud, which suggests freedom and the essence of life. The cage implies the impact and fetter from modern society. We are just like the man in the cage. Only when we are at leisure can we initiate a new world and find our own soul.
