Abstract: Many people regard perfection and flawlessness as the indication of successful achievement. However according to Buddhist thought, everything is governed by The Three Common Characteristics called ‘Tilakkhana’. These consist of transiency, being oppressed, and soullessness. Consequently, nothing remains perfect and permanent. Denying the truth of imperfection and impermanence will eventually result in negative feelings. Being able to embrace uncomfortable truth will allow us to let things come, stay, and go naturally. Both positive and negative outcomes become acceptable. This project is intended to raise the awareness of appreciating the unique vitality and non-uniformities of wooden pattern and contour particularly random holes, unpredictable knots, and dynamic trunks. The exploration of incorporating the irregular properties of wood with artisanal effort is aimed to demonstrate synergetic ways of adopting and revitalizing undervalued and defective materials.
