Project Statement for “Family Album: Intimacy”
As we have lived in COVID-19 pandemic over a year, all human beings around the world were given much more time to stay at home with the people we share the living space with. As each individual has their own personalities and characteristics, the endless time we spent with each other living together makes our individual characteristics merge. When we present ourselves to the audience, an overall impression of this group of people who have an intimate relationship is shown as a whole. Personally, I share a living space with my parents. Thus, this project explores the merging of different individuality of each member in my family reflecting on the wardrobe, and what the overall impression of my family will give to others, which I would like to call it the spirit of a family. The project is developed along with the idea of fashion sustainability that many unwanted garments and fabrics are recycled and reused in the process.
