Spring semester update

For this semester of seminar, I am still very interested in China and freedom of expression. I spent nearly all of Fall semester educating myself on my topic and somewhat narrowing down my visual representations. 

This semester I am going to further explore pairing mudra (Buddhist and Hindu hand gestures) with excerpts from The Analects by Confucius and the Chinese constitution. I have been working my way through a large book of mudra picking out Buddhist gestures that will pair with certain excerpts I have already chosen. 

Soon I am going to start experimenting with screen printing mudra onto rice paper and letterpressing the text.
