Artist Hong Yi, aka Red is always up to something fantastic. For her most recent project, she used chopsticks—a symbol of Chinese culture—as the medium to create a portrait for actor and martial arts master Jackie Chan’s 60th birthday this year. She meticulously tied batches of the 64,000 chopsticks together and strung them in rows to produce Jackie Chan’s likeness. From up close, the portrait is nothing more than a pixelated arrangement of dots. But, from afar, Chan’s smiling face emerges from the wooden sticks as another stunning example of Red’s innovative style.

This is so true
we stop and we see a wolf on a distant hill, and it’s a really beautiful, beautiful scene. It’s like so heart-warming because it’s just a beautiful moment between these foxes and little animals and this really like mysterious wolf who we’ve heard about the entire movie and who doesn’t talk in this scene and he’s not wearing clothes. He’s kind of, he represents I guess, the wild. He’s a wild wolf and animal, and it’s a beautiful moment where they have this great connection, and in that moment, it really like to me the point of that scene is let’s keep on being free. Let’s keep on being animals. And it’s such an uplifting moment, and like when I’ve seen it with audiences, a bunch of people break into huge cheers and hooting. It’s such an awesome, awesome scene. It really just blows my mind. - Jason Schwartzman
