Yip, a renowned artist active for years in various fields Kevin Johnson Texans Jersey , entered the world stage via his ""new orientalism"" aesthetic, which featured heavily in Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2000.

For his work on the film, Yip won in 2001 the Academy Award for Best Art Direction, as well as the British Academy Film Award for Best Costume Designer - the only Chinese designer to do so.

In his newly released book Reformation, Yip takes a look back at his 30-year career and delves into his aesthetic thinking and practices.

Cultural vacancy in film art

""What I keep trying to do is break the boundaries of history,"" Yip told the Global Times in an interview after the fan meet.

It's not difficult to see the cross-boundary elements in Yip's artworks. For Yip, imagery always comes first, history and tradition second.

For instance Nick Martin Texans Jersey , in the 1992 film Temptation of a Monk, he combines paintings and sculptures by French artist Max Ernst with Chinese traditional clothing, while in an adaptation of Shakespeare's King Lear he made heavy use of Peking Opera elements.

In a November article written by The Guardian, Yip mentions his adoption of Tang Dynasty (618-907) colors in the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which is set during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), to make the visual effects feel ""less harsh and contrasted, and more elegant and harmonious.""

""On screen, you are unable to adhere very strictly to history since Chinese tradition currently has huge empty spaces Julien Davenport Texans Jersey ,"" Yip said, explaining his thoughts on realism in design.

""For example, if you want to recreate an ancient house, but need 10 antique chairs, what do you do when you only have five?""

For Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Yip simplified sets to better match the film's tempo.

According to Yip, if he wants to express a cultural idea in his design, he will always focus on the ""tiny little things"" instead of the whole Zach Cunningham Texans Jersey , and then go from there to complete the entire set.

All focus time

Although little details are an important part of Yip's design philosophy, he pointed out that this runs counter to current trends.

""People now are living in a time when they focus on everything,"" the Hong Kong born artist said.

Yip said that he thinks people today tend to over-mythologize language and texts but neglect imagery, which can be explained by a preference among artists today to use theology to introduce their creations.

""They take a textual approach to make sense of their art, and only then establish their art's style,"" Yip said. ""They actually have things backward.""

New orientalism

One can see a blend of avant garde mixed with ancient Chinese philosophy in Yip's designs. However, this sometimes makes his works difficult to understand.

Chen uses the concept of ""maximalism"" to help understand Yip's art. An aesthetic of excess and redundancy, maximalism in Yip's works often manifests as a fertile mix of multiple genres and cultures.

""Of course, Yip's world is much more complicated than that. The concept of maximalism is merely a stepping stone to understanding Yip's artworks Deshaun Watson Texans Jersey ,"" Chen said at the fan meet on November 27.

Despite, or perhaps because of, the difficulties people have in understanding his art, Yip has gained favor around the world, while his work has become ""an internationally recognized visual language,"" the Financial Times wrote in 2013.

In the introduction to Reformation, New York-based filmmaker Mira Nair wrote that new orientalism not only repackages the mystery of the Orient, but also embodies a curious drive to explore the past, the present and the future.

Yip explained that his new orientalism concept had its roots in a love-hate relationship. Yip recalled that when he first started out Whitney Mercilus Texans Jersey , he loved Western culture, but resisted it at the same time.

""If you love it too much, you will lose yourself.""

According to Yip, after the 1980s globalization developed at an insane pace, leading many Asian countries to abandon their own art, culture and aesthetic standards in favor of Western standards.

""[Japanese fashion designer] Yohji Yamamoto once told me, that he had worked in Paris fashion circle for 16 years, but never dared to present kimono elements in his designs because he was afraid of being criticized,"" Yip recalled. ""Only now Johnathan Joseph Texans Jersey , has he found the courage to add a few kimono elements.""

BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- The day after Orion, NASA's new spacecraft designed to carry astronauts to Mars, made its first test flight, a group of Chinese kids created their own Mars rover at Beijing Planetarium.

Yutu,"" China's first lunar rover, tells the children how a rover is designed, then stands back to watch as the children embellish it with their own creativity.

Li Mingzhen, 10 Jadeveon Clowney Texans Jersey , adds another camera ""to take a selfie when landing on Mars."" Yang Yang, 9, gives it a magnetic arm to attract minerals.

Huang Jinkai, 11, draws a sprinkler on the bottom of his rover and explains that ""water will make the tough stones soft, which protects the wheel of the rover."" He also adds a ""take off button,"" hoping that it will fly and get a birds-eye view of the Martian surface, except there are no birds on Mars.

Jia Yang believes his talk must have sown the seeds of space science in some children's hearts. He recalls that, ""When I was eight years old Lamar Miller Texans Jersey , I rea.
