Final Proposal

When I was 15 I was reading one of the Greatest Chinese novels —Dream of the Red Mansion, (红楼梦) it was written in the year of 1791 in Ming dynasty with the history of more than 200 years, it is a big book has 120 chapters in total。


It has a such great impact on my life,I love the ancient very poetic Chinese writing style as well as the story plot, the one chapter that kept me thinking over and over again is Chapter 5, is about the main character Baoyu, he had a dream in a fancy palace in the sky and he saw some poems on the pillar, and each of the poems actually tells the fate of every other characters in a very delicate way.

The fate of those 12 girls’ fates all in the poems.

They were so well written and I was fascinated.


Also I really like the idea of using the poems for fate.

I was also interested in making human input into generated output. So I just had this idea in mind that I want to make a palm reader that print out a poems as output for “fate reading”.

So far the idea that I have is:diagram-01

Sorry for the lazy drawing of the hands, I used to be a good illustrator then I’m not. ; )
