The driftwood found in the aftermath of Typhoon Morakot (2009), Taiwan’s deadliest typhoon in recorded history, was the starting point for this design.

The driftwood was gathered and layers of lacquer were applied to preserve the effects of the natural force. Covered with shiny black lacquer, the silhouettes of the driftwood resemble the strokes of Chinese calligraphy, reflecting the movement of the handwriting.

Calligraphy Screen both memorializes the event and transforms the remembrance into a work of contemporary design.
