Abstract

‘Home’ is something people will always be longed for. It is a matter of close concern for individuals, groups, and even society. Through the transformation of artistic language, it interprets people’s emotional, physical and psychological feelings towards it in a graphic way, in order trying to find the answer in how to make a perfect home/residence. Or their images can be transformed into some kind of clear visual identity to express people’s needs for a house/home or their struggle for a place to dwell. Besides, through the repeated use of certain images, we can see that their power as an image transcends different generations. And may take on new meanings as times change. Therefore, images are not only used as an artistic means to record and describe the state of a particular moment.
