Inspired by ancient Chinese text, I Ching, also known as Book of Changes, the piece is not just based on the 16 abstracted ideas: Simplicity etc. Rather, it developed the further abstraction on the relationship between each words using symbolism. The mechanism embedded within the piece coincides with the ideology which I Ching represents: reflect the universe, the ever-changing, from the eight elements, the unchangeable.
