The Act of Writing

\u0087 In calligraphy the production
of the character is an artistic
act.

\u0087 In calligraphy, each character
is treated as a plastic image to
convey harmony, grace, and
beauty.

\u0087 Calligraphic styles have
changed over time and in
relation to different
applications.

The Act of Writing

In calligraphy, each character or word is
treated as an image and must satisfy
three criteria:

1.

Communication (semantic) criteria.
It must convey the meaning of the
word it represents.

2.

Phonetic criteria. It must represent
the corresponding sounds of letters it
depicts.

3.

Aesthetic criteria. A calligraphic
work has its own autonomy and
integrity as a shape in space. It must
meet appropriate artistic standards.
