Artist's Description

.

I currently have a large mounted print of “Red String of Fate” along with “Sunset with Blue Trees” on hand available for sale in the Greater Toronto Area. See details here

.

I feel my heart being pulled when we are not together,
Longing for the day we are with each other.
The thread between us will never break;
Our destinies are tied by the red string of fate.

My origami calendar

The red string of fate is based on a Chinese myth that the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of men and women destined to be soul mates. This myth has also been adapted into other East Asian cultures. I first became familiar with it by watching anime; though in those cases, one would attempt to match up couples by tying their fingers.

This image, while on one hand based on that Chinese legend, is one that defines me. With the red thread forming the heart, I frame what is currently my greatest passion: miniature origami. I fold using tweezers, and sometimes with needles (I show a needle here, though for these hearts I only used tweezers as they are not that small). The hearts of paper and string, while representing my passion, also represent my soul, and how my fate is bound by the constraints of life. I’m in my own little world bound by a thread of fate; though my passion lies in a world of paper. While most women primarily use needles for sowing; I primarily use them for tiny origami :P

I adjust the position of the objects with tweezers, and sometimes got magnetic reactions between the tweezers and the needle. They say opposites attract… but they are both metal :]

Each heart was folded from a 15 × 15mm piece of paper.

Taken with an Olympus FE-340 on super macro mode.

Great for Valentines day or as love letters, because you and your loved ones were destined by fate.
