It’s an installation. It’s meant to be touched.
I use fabric because fabric is very close to us like we are wearing it every day since we are born. And sense of touch is very important to me, sometimes seeing is not enough! You can feel and understand more by touching.
For this event, i chose shell inspired shape. We get older but no shedding or molding, so wrinkled and change hair color. Shells shows its history in progress, past the starting point, now the present and future is predictable or can explore our imagination how it will be.
