This set of drawings interprets three traditional Chinese games -Ping Pong, Tai-Chi and I-Ching through a series of different lenses with alternative aspects of what it means to participate and play under a specific cultural context. It introduces the Chinese way of enjoying life through traditional and modern mathematical principles with simple visual elements and establishes obvious or hidden logic between them. These drawings are not intended to provide one primary interpretation of a given name, instead, they articulate a particular way of visualising an activity, and by doing so they encourage viewers to speculate about other possible modes of analysis.
