Emptiness

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

One of the most important messages was to leave a gap for the viewers to their own understanding. It was created through a method of viewing garments from different perspectives, then to combine them into one view. All perspectives, therefore no perspective, therefore emptiness.

INSPIRATION

Oppose to its meaning of nothingness, I took the term from Buddhism, where it’s the highest state of mind, which was something I was particularly interested in at the time.

MATERIALS USED

Translucent mesh fabrics, soft jersey, and soft silks.
