The project is the second pathway of communication with the deceased. It is designed for people who live in remote areas and rarely have time for memorial because of their busy schedule, and they feel a lack of communication with their deceased relatives.
My exploration is based on the Black Book (content in this book is related to ghosts). We can tell the location of the soul of the deceased according to different time and places. And then we can communicate more accurately with the dead in light of the estimated location.
This way of communication breaks out the distance in both time and space between people and their deceased relatives. I designed an instrument which can accurately locate the soul of the dead, so as to make the solemn memorial ceremony feasible even in remote places.
I have interviewed with people from different age groups about their experiences of memorial ceremony and the traditional rules of the ritual.
Also, the evolution of urban road planning has a huge influence on the ritual.
EGG DIVINATION, THE EIGHT TRIGRAMS & THE BLACK BOOK
I summarized some content in the Black book.
Based on The Black Book, we locate the direction of our deceased relatives according to different date and places. Each month corresponds a specific direction. Therefore, we can communicate with the deceased in a more accurate way.
Then, I visualized it in a form of "a bearing diagram".
