Story of Swinging Symmetry

Traditional Chinese brass lock and door-knocker represent an abstract cultural symbol more than their practical functions today. Under the development of industrialized economy, the pursuit of high efficiency seems to override everything. Has “culture” turned to be a consumable decoration being interpreted arbitrarily?

Swinging Symmetry is a transformation of the features and structures of the Chinese lock and door-knocker into two complementary and movable parts. The flexible structure of the inner part allows easy disassembly and reassembly of the bracelet. Lock the two parts as one. It swings and waves following your hand movements.
