60 Dragons

I explored the aesthetic potential of disposable bamboo chopsticks – a material commonly found at street side stalls in China. I collected over 60,000 of them in Zhejiang and explored the potential of how chopsticks could be transformed through accumulation: in bundles of 4, 8, 16 and 32. I suspended these bundles and rendered it into a portrait of Jackie Chan, who also commissioned this piece. To the left of the portrait were 60 bamboo chopstick holders with chopsticks arranged into 60 different variations of the Chinese character, “dragon”, to mark his 60th birthday.
