The theme of the exhibition derives from the Gestalt principle, ‘The whole is more than the sum of its parts’.
As we observe people within a situation, our minds connect the people with the environment and develop relationships within the circumstances.
New perceptual, psychological energy is formed through the interaction and reasoning.
Everything we see is a result generated by complex actions. Our eyes perceive composed parts as a whole.
Psychological energy perceived through interaction is of greater significance than a mere sum of parts.
When there is an objective and individual elements are put together and sufficiently perform actions,
a meaning is achieved and finally the visual energy can be appreciated.
The Gestalt principle can be seen in all forms of design and art. Yonsei University Design and Art Faculty have adopted these basic principles
and want to provide a greater sense of creative energy for the students. The mandala is a sum of gathered parts and the students represent
those individual parts. The whole mandala is a representation of the graduation exhibition.
An exhibition was held at the Luminarie Gallery near Gangnam Station in Seoul, Korea on November 29th– December 4th, 2014
