Between Jade and Plastic
Between Jade and Plastic project is a series of illustrations that attempts to challenge the boundaries between humans and birds, exploring the color gradient on a dark canvas in digital drawing, cooping the notion of animism, metaphorical motion capture, and anthropomorphic objects.
Birder. The acceptable term is used to describe the person who seriously pursues the hobby of birding. May be professional or amateur.
Birding. A hobby in which individuals enjoy the challenge of bird study, listing, or other general activities involving birdlife.
Bird-watcher. A rather ambiguous term used to describe the person who watches birds for any reason at all, and should not be used to refer to the serious birder.

After drawing birds' motion with the interpretation of explanation of anthropomorphic meanings, I shift my attention to the simulations of birds pesonalities, letting them grow, and playing with the Freudian theory of human personality with three major components: the id, ego, and superego.
The id as the most primitive part of the personality shown as the bird's figure of recognation. This part of the personality is entirely unconscious and serves as the source of all libidinal energy.
The ego as the component of personality dealing with reality and helps ensure that the demands of the id are satisfied in ways that are realistic, safe, and socially acceptable, which could be identified as the weird gesture these birdish acting.
The superego is the part of the personality that holds all of the internalized morals and standards that we acquire from our parents, family, and society at large, whereas particle colors has been invited.
