Expectations make people progress and achieve success, however many urbanites live at the top of their lung in order to satisfy the expectations of others or themselves. The series of works mainly express my own frustrated experience including the moment reactions of my body and mind when I felt defeat and worthless. In addition, facing the emotions of disappointment and collapse, I choose to transform into five senses to create new hope and energy.
From the sustainable aspect, most patterns used in this series of works are digital printing and remaining fabric. The dyes I use are environmentally friendly material. Besides, the size of patterns can be simulated on the computer in advance to reduce the use of fabrics. In addition, some fabrics (blue and orange) I chose were remnant and some white fabrics were surplus fabric left by the clothing company in the printing factory.
In terms of clothing function, the patterns and the way people wear can also show a person’s personality and self-satisfying function. I used the splicing of different materials, and designed many zippers and plastic accessories as tailoring seams. People can change the shape through connected items, and also mix and match clothes randomly. Finally, the design of long sleeves is cold-proof.
