Triangle in Memories
In my memory, elderly like to fold the smallest notes to make little triangles, and use various kinds of method to put them together into different shapes, such as pineapple, swan and some animals. These works become a piece of art, and kids enjoy seeing how they were made. We learned from the elderly to fold the triangles, and make our own imperfect shapes with our tiny hands.
This is where the inspiration of this project came from, those little triangles in my memory guide me back to the old days.
The theme of this project is about ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION, which recyclable materials were used instead of the notes, to recreate the triangles from my memory.
how we fold triangles...
These small armor samples were been made by tracing paper.
What would trigger your feeling and emotion,
when you are standing in the forest and breathing in different kind of smell flow in the air?
Put these smells on your skin,
and feel them closely.
Digital Print Patterns
Here are my BA graduation collection, named BLACK COLLECTION. Initial inspiration began with watching an animated film which named "Tim Button's Corpse Bride". This film is a story based on a European folk tale,"Corpse Bride".
It dragged me to think about the cross moment between life and death. Therefore, I creative some twisted structures or shapes as the detail which explore the feeling of hidden emotions. Those details are developing from the seashell surface. Black is been used as the main and only colour for this collection. For the silhouette, I extend the neck line and allow the twisted details wrapping over and around the neck, which express the version of fetter.
