Presenters and Abstracts:
“Mapping Yijing Cosmology to 'Free & Easy Wandering' in the Zhuangzi: A Visual Interpretation”
I will present an artistic representation of the story of Kūn and Péng from the Zhuangzi’s introductory chapter “Free & Easy Wandering.” The ancient divination classic Book of Changes (Yijing) offers a cosmological compass upon which to ground and orient Zhuangzi’s whimsical language. Basic Yijing hexagram structure will be introduced, including the Bagua (eight foundational trigrams) and their directional alignment. Overlaying the opening story of Kūn and Péng onto the Bagua compass solidifies the Daoist story into a map. Interacting with a map, an individual is assured of order and place. The visual accompaniment interprets the world map of Kūn and Péng and questions how to harmonize with its cosmological order.
