What does Zihan Song want to imply with the collection?
The purpose of the collection is conveying the idea that humans could obtain sex pleasure other than sex behaviours. Zihan Song believes that sex pleasure is an internal satisfaction and fulfilment feeling which is on a spiritual level, and it could be acquired other than sexual behaviours. She was trying to capture certain pleasure moments from daily life. Her ambition for the project is applying different mechanical structures to designs to achieve motions.
Zihan Song tries to break the conventional jewellery design through the collection: the jewellery unnecessary to be made of noble metal; the boundary between wearer and jewellery.
