For my dear friends whom made my undergrad journey so memorable.
Simple and abstract design of the letters "SFU" - the acronym of Simon Fraser University, the books serve as records of my life in Canada from 2015-2020.
Five colours in total - Green, blue, red, grey, and black. Each colour represents different materials and sceneries in the university. Some of the copies were printed in Vancouver, Canada using Mohawk paper. In 2020, I returned to China and decided to try printing my books using different printing techniques.
The books are mainly images that I took with minimum text. The text contents are usually quite short, to give a more "if you know, you know" vibe.
As I am writing this in 2022, it has been two years since I graduated from SFU. Time sure went by pretty quickly - if I have to speak for what's inperfect about this piece, is that we are still missing our graduation photos. The grad ceremony was cancelled due to COVID-19, and the school rescheduled one in May this year. But we still couldn't make it.
With that being said, even tho the SFU series is completed now, I believe that there's going to be one "Reunited" edition with all of us sitting together laughing, roasting each other, flipping through these books, and creating new set of memories.
For my friend, if you happen to see this, please know that I always think of you and I am sure that we will see each other soon.
