OBJECTS OF DESIRE
China’s emergence as a relevant party on the international economic and political stage has permitted its softer, cultural legacies to garner increased attention around the world. Within that context, modern Chinese designers and artists incorporate traditional Chinese design in varying degrees, either closely sticking with tradition or creating modern interpretations of old ideas and concepts. Through their work, Chinese design concepts have been resuscitated with new life, removed from the shadows of orientalism and into the spotlight for consideration by a truly global and mainstream audience.
