Concept

In China, urbanization has progressed due to the rapid development of economy, technology, and high-rise buildings and also highways have transformed the city's landscape. But there are some traditions left standing in the garden in the city called 'Kazanseki'. Kazanseki is a feature based on the characteristic of natural stone that has been used in the historic garden design in China and has been used as the symbol of hope with the wish of ‘return to nature’.The stones’ feature ‘pores and holes’ are the symbol of worlds’ natural shape. According to China’s traditional culture, existences are born from formation instead of and it is nothingness at the beginning of formation. Further, first existence is called chi and other existences are all born from chi. Chi is the material of formation, the power of formation and its manner decide its essence. The concept of Kazaneseki is deeply connecting to the influential Chinese philosopher, Zhuangzi, and Laozi. The representative of chi philosophy is not just researching nature essence based on the concept of metamorphosis, but also combined the concept of metaphysical. However, China’s politics especially socialism is influenced by western culture, dualism theory. For example, control nature and the confrontation between people or countries, those confrontations are making conflict easily. In terms of old Chinese philosophy, it said human has to respect nature as a part of life in nature. To show the conflict between china’s socialism and China’s education, Chinese philosophy, Zeng Cho uses Chinese tunic suit and red necktie to symbolize china’s socialism and use kaiseki to symbolize Chinese tradition and philosophy.
