This typography series designs Chinese characters using patterns from other writing systems such as Arabic, Thai, Hindi, among others. TRUTH presents these special characters on proverbs said by remarkable people seeking for the true value of existence. I used temperature-sensing ink to cover these characters to let people, after placing their hands on, to discover by themselves. These phrases might guide to enlightenment for those who dare to apply them on the daily basis through self-exploration and personal commitment. Its deep meaning and the opportunity to find a path to reach the truth by yourself make this project transcends from a design art to a life lesson.
