Where do you get your concept and feeling of ice from?Cao Xue: I was born that day is the minor snow solar term, my mother gave me this name, a single word of snow.I always say it’s destiny to design and be selected for the Winter Olympics.I grew up in Nanjing. It often snowed in Nanjing. When I was young, I would make snow carts or skateboards with bamboo slices and benches together with children in my neighborhood.Making snowmen and having snowball fights are also my childhood memories.As soon as it snows, nanjing, which is very familiar, becomes refreshing overnight.This kind of visual impact has a great effect on those who are engaged in design.These elements are stored in my brain and I extract them whenever a task or project needs to be designed.The change from the concept of ice to concrete ice shell comes from the ice-sugar gourd in another shortlisted project, which reminds us of visual elements such as ice shell and ice crystal coat.Red Star News: In the official Olympic flagship store, many areas around “Bing Dwen Dwen” have been sold out. Many consumers leave comments that this is to implement the principle of “one family, one dun”. Some people say that “Bing Dwen Dwen” is the most successful mascot.Cao Xue: A little unexpected.We were sure it would be loved, but we didn’t expect it to be sold out in the last few days.Our team actually disbanded a long time ago, but the wechat group is still there.The original team consisted of 14 people, half of whom were graduate students, many of whom are now two years out of school.These days, the group is busy again, we see “ice dun dun” news will be shared immediately.The team “gave birth” to the baby, and we are all concerned about its development.Many friends and relatives have asked me if there is a special channel to buy (around “Bing Dwen Dwen”), and my unified reply is “no indeed”.Home of the “ice pier pier” had already sent over, we also pay to buy online.”Ice Dwen Dwen” peripheral sold out this matter, in my family has a story.I have two children of my own, and my eldest son does not live with me. His friend really wanted a “Bing Dwen Dwen” blind box, so my eldest son went to a shop in Guangzhou to ask if they sold it, but the staff told him regretfully that they did not.In order to make friends, he said, “My father is a designer of Bing Dwen Dwen. Can you do something about it?””I’m sorry,” they said. “No, you can check it in.”How do I know this?Someone went to the same store and asked if there was any “Bing Dwen Dwen”. The staff replied: “No, Cao Xue’s son has been here, he didn’t have any, let alone you.””Bing Dwen Dwen” will become the memory of an era red Star news: “Bing Dwen Dwen” has formed a upsurge, do you worry about after the Winter Olympics “Bing Dwen Dwen” out of style?What do you hope bing Dwen Dwen will leave behind in the years to come?Cao Xue: “Bing Dwen Dwen” has a black and white body and an ice crystal shell.It’s supposed to be cold, but instead, it’s warm, cute and cuddly.Once the warmth is felt, the warm memories will remain even after bingdun-dun becomes a thing of the past.I hope it will be a classic and memorable.When it was announced that we (” Bing Dwen Dwen “) were selected, a person in charge of the Winter Olympic Organizing Committee made a speech. He said that from now on, Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts would be forever recorded in the Olympic history.When we design, we naturally look at the mascots of previous Olympic Games.As long as the Olympic Games are mentioned, “Bing Dwen Dwen” will reappear and become the memory of a generation or an era, so we are not worried about “Bing Dwen Dwen” will go out of style.On the other hand, within our team, I always hoped that the heat of “Bing Dwen Dwen” would pass.I often say that creative labor is always a one-time labor.I hope the members of the team continue to make miracles, but I may never get the chance to do so again.After “Bing Dwen Dwen” was selected, I told all the team members that we should not talk about “Bing Dwen Dwen” except when a third party mentioned “Bing Dwen Dwen”.For the younger students on the team, starting too high may not be a good thing.Applause and cheers are the fundamental cause of deafness.Now the Winter Olympics are about to start, of course we are very excited, but the road ahead is long, they still need to fight, everyone needs to zero themselves.Want to exchange red Star news with The Japanese journalist who loves Bing Dwen dwen: what do you want to say to the Japanese journalist who loves Bing Dwen Dwen?Cao Xue: If possible, I would like to communicate with him face to face and hear why he likes “bing Dwen dwen” so much.And I’m willing to take a team and help him sign the perimeter of Bing Dwen Dwen.Red Star news: Today is the opening day of the Winter Olympic Games. As a participant, what are your expectations for the Winter Olympic Games?Cao Xue: I have read the media’s interview with director Zhang Yimou and I am looking forward to the opening ceremony tonight.I have a graduate student who has been in the Bird’s Nest for two months working with Zhang Yimou’s team to create art for the Opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.I hope to see a small, short, but powerful opening ceremony tonight.In an interview, Zhang yimou said that times have changed, and he wanted to realize his dream this time when the technological level was not reached in 2008.I hope this winter Olympics will leave a great mark in Olympic history.Red Star news reporter Wu Yang intern Wang Chenyuan editor to caixia (download red star news, newsfeed awards!)
