fragmented info

About the new practice, I creates a modular textile system related to "time". I created a modular textile system related to "time" to counter our fragmented behavior in the digital age, with the aim of reconnecting our cohesion. It's as if we are constantly concentrating on Legos and puzzles for long periods of time. So I incorporate crosswords and building blocks into my textile system for her audience to play with.

I chose celadon as my main pattern-making process because I hope that everything to be focused and continuous. A slower technique is used to feel the high level of concentration throughout the process. And I record my concentration throughout the process, in contrast to my fragmented behavior.

My three perspectives on thinking are:

  • Aesthetics of Slow
  • Ways of playing
  • The language of materials

It is a way of fighting our internal cohesion against the age of fragmented information.

I hope that anyone who is controlled by the act of fragmentation can be inspired by my creations, to re-experience the power of cohesion in the slow process, the stitching together of elements, and to live playfully by creating as a game.
