As part of Wen Yu's artist residency at CCTV, "Tofu Company," Wen will be offering a workshop that opens a window to Chinese alchemy of the Han Dynasty, one of the longest of China's major dynasties that was very enthusiastic about Taoism. The workshop explores Han portrait bricks, found in ancient tombs and excavation sites, showing the mythical and immortal creators/animals of the world that are longed by man.
Drawing inspiration from Han imagery and MFA's Han Dynasty collections, the participants will learn how to create animated Gifs on phones/iPads. In the end, the artist will put together all the spiritual creations on a scroll to make a whole video piece.
