My creative strategy, 'Fashion is structured emotion', covers
1, spectacular theatre; 2, the intangible fashion experience; 3, sound accessories.
By examining emotions from a biological perspective, I discovered sunshine as my emotional engine, which shapes emotions via sunshine's positive biochemical effect on humans. Thus, the light was used as a media for my bio-informed design. By collecting and recording my experience with the sun, sunlight affective artifact was developed, showcasing the storage and reconstruction of sunlight, realizing the scattering and dissemination of multi-sensory sunlight, and building a sunlight+emotion fabrication system, which eventually creates a moment of mindfulness experience connected with the sun.
I was awarded a bachelor's degree in fashion design at Donghua University in Shanghai, China, and I have been painting and singing since childhood. I designed a work that expresses my persona with shadow as imagery. At RCA, my perspective turned to the sunlight, and we discussed the ecological image of emotions - sunshine. The theme includes sunshine chiaroscuro vision transformation, conveying of active humming sound while walking in the sun, etc. My boundaries of practice are widening, including performance practice, soft sculpture, music and sound construction, light and space shaping, etc.
Meanwhile, I also started breathing exercises and yoga practice to establish a deeper connection to my inner space.
