View and Vision of A Chinese Traditional Landscape Painting

A traditional Chinese landscape painting is an imagined world in which different scenes in different places, space and time can be displayed at the same time, and different people can see different images in the same painting according to each person’s different viewing process. Through the definition of view and vision, the lines on traditional Chinese landscape painting are extracted, and they are introduced into the three-dimensional space, forming an entity with the characteristics of painting lines. Considering the two features of the landscape painting segments, uniqueness as well as freedom from the limitation of painting frame, the building on the site is composed of overlapping segments, and through the transformation of “frame”, some sections become new facades, therefore new two-dimensional paintings are generated. At this point, these two-dimensional paintings are displayed at different positions, at different heights, sizes and angles, then we can explore how they talk to each other, and how they relate to the original painting before translation.
