The fertile soils are the soul where humanity begins to nurture the forces of life;
Homes are the centers of daily living for families;
Cities are those ports in which a dependent humanity engages in interaction.
As the urban expanse ceaselessly grows, the measures of the traversing highways and byways metamorphoses. The bisected vision of the houses lying in two, reveals not only the living history of the former occupants but the wistful dreams of a glorious renewed urban environ. In the Mandarin character for fields, the semantic sense reveals that no harvest comes without planting, hinting at a core cultural value behind our industriousness. In the visual structure of the Mandarin character for fields, the remnants of luggage left behind in the hurry to remove from the premises, recall to mind our exhuberant youthful experiences at playing homel. And in the world outside the Mandarin character for fields, the changing face of the city, always builds and rebuilds story upon story on its layered history.
