Fine China

Fine China

Blueprint, 30 x 42 inches



Fine China is made with the now obsolete architectural blue print technology. It is an exploration of China's past and present with a different take on issues within and outside a country of growing influence in the present day, with a collection of 24 re-designed porcelains ( fine china ) with banal and ironic images. It is a search for China's identity in the new millennium.


With the support of Pleasure Dome (Toronto) for a project titled Blueprint: A Blueprint for Moving Images in the 21st Century, it was  re-invented as a video piece.

In 2014, Tam revisited the print and included a description for each porcelain objects and reprinted the work in a book form (Hotam #4).
