Final Project

my final project: DANCHEONG

DACHEONG is my inspiration and subject matter and it refers to korean traditional decorative coloring on wooden buildings and artifacts for the purpose of style. it literally means "cinnabar and blue-green" in korean. it is based on five basic colors, blue (east), white (west), red (south), black (north), and yellow (center). it functions not only for decoration, but also for practical purposes such as to protect building surface against temperature and to make the crudeness of materials less conspicuous.
