Mengyuan Wang is a Textiles designer who has a background in fashion design. During her postgraduate year, she mainly worked across knitting, printing and Shibori.
She likes to intuitively feel the interaction of tools and materials without the intervention of thinking, so that the thinking of the hands is faster than the thinking of the brain. She believes in the product of the subconscious rather than the expression of logic, and allows designs to sprout freely without pruning the branches. The soil and nutrients needed for all these growths come from her background and experience.
Meaningless and repetitive actions or symbols make her calm, and rigorous and complicated crafts bring her freedom. She is keen on the mastery and control of craftsmanship and materials, and gives new interpretations to traditional techniques. She use Shibori as her pen for writing, describing imperfections in a poetic way, and Devore as her knife for carving, appreciating the wholeness gained from loss.
