  • Introduction

    Language is believed to be the highest and the wisest presentation both in China and in the West, whereas visual reproduction is thought as a lesser way of representation. This requires us to put such art in the realm of visual culture and study it, which means besides the common research on art history and aesthetics, we need to add study on other areas on top of viewing our visual experiences. The main task is to increase our understanding of vision – not just visibility – but the cultural process. It is such process that made our visual experience whole. Perhaps we should not look at such written art as a visual or readable subject, but as a process, a process of the formation of social and cultural identity, and as a behavior or an event. And from the event itself, we try to discover and taste its meaning.
