The essence of life is poetic.
People live on the earth poetically.
You cannot plan “emptiness”, but you can draw its boundaries. These boundaries become the body of consciousness. If you want to produce beauty, you must write on the light and resonance that permeates this “absence”. Space carries multiple emotions, and also gives metaphysical silence, similar to poetry.
On the road of chasing the origin, designers are looking for ways to describe consciousness with entities. They try to use the material in the most precise and perceptual way. Although the material itself is not poetic, the touch, smell, acoustic quality and optical perception of the material are the languages of the poetic space. They unearth the special essence of a certain material, poetry came into being. The use of space materials began to become full of emotion and evocative.
Essentialism attempts to develop a design that makes things the way it wants to be. This is the organization of materials based on real physical properties and psychological feelings. The subtext of modernism is “space” and “modeling” before the wall material. The concept of essentialism is based on the material expression of construction, which is to return to the “empty” essence of space after abandoning all other means.
There is also a tension but wavering relationship between multiplicity and silence. The key to essentialism lies in their balance. Shape is the result, not the cause. Beauty does not arise from the shape alone, but nature, perception and emotion that this shape triggers us to explore. Emotions reveal the true core of things, and emotions trigger the production of memories.
