For this project I used a old love poem from the Han Dynasty as an inspiration. With this poem I created my own vision about its design and meaning.
上邪 (meaning: Oh Heaven) is a Yuefu poem, a kind of folk poetry Yuefu poems are written to accompany music. By Heaven! is a poem praying for eternal love. It is one of the most most famous Chinese love poems. 上邪 literal meaning is the upward evil.
Even when mountains flatten and riverbeds run dry,
And the earth moves to become one with the sky,
Even when winter has thunder and summer has snow,
Never will my feelings do anything but grow.
