The Spatial Calligraphy rotates in the artwork space, every aspect rotating in the same direction, but depending on a viewer’s perception, it can appear to be rotating clockwise or counterclockwise. Both ends of the artwork are connected creating a space that is continuous in a single direction.


Spatial Calligraphy offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese sho (calligraphy) in an abstract space. The artwork reconstructs Japanese sho in three dimensional space and expresses the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke.
