Thickness of Calligraphy

"Thickness of Calligraphy" is an online virtual exhibition with the theme of "3D calligraphy". It can be accessed as World on VRChat.

This virtual exhibition is curated and created by Jessien Huang. It divides the artist Boyan‘s research into four stages, which are presented successively through a large number of works.

While these works are exhibited as research results, the exhibition also tells the story of tortuous research experiences. These experiences and works both have unique reference value and enlightening significance.
