Yun's artistic practice centres on investigating the evocation of memories, particularly personal memories and nostalgia, through the creation of fabric-based objects. The focus lies in transforming materials to elicit emotional interpretations of industrial objects and capturing subtle and delicate memories through tactile experiences.

Initial research involved reconstructing objects with different materials, utilising delicate fabrics such as chiffon and organza, while preserving their original size and proportions. This approach aimed to convey the essence of memories by emphasising the sensory aspects of touch and exploring the emotional interpretations of industrial objects.

Further studies were conducted to gain a comprehensive understanding of objects, including their structures, functions, and reinterpretations. Research phases one and two delved into the physical properties of objects and explored innovative approaches to reinterpretation. In phase three, the objective was to integrate materialised memories with garments, enabling individuals to possess and embody these memories. This stage focused on technical aspects such as pattern cutting, draping, and connecting fabric objects to flat patterns.

Drawing insights from the series of studies, the ultimate goal was achieved in the form of a wearable collection that materialised memories, aligning with the initial concept. While the first three stages concentrated on accurately translating objects into the fabric, the final phase explored the interaction between the garments and the wearer's body, as well as the simplified and visually appealing representation of objects that resonated sensorially.

Yun's artistic journey culminated in a wearable collection that artfully merged fabric-based objects and personal memories. The research not only addressed the technical aspects of material transformation but also explored the transformative experience of wearing the garments and the emotional resonance they evoke.
