Material: Resin, beads, organza, taffeta
My inspiration comes from my observation of the people in my world. For this project, I am studying some of the most complicated individuals I have come across in my life.

These individuals celebrate one thing in common, charisma that is born in danger. They celebrate duality that they are blunt in tenderness and tough in fragility. The mysteries in these humans are so intriguing, so I got inspired to refer to a series of plants and animals that mimic the shapes and texture of the unharmful but hide their edge in disguise.

I borrow some of their characteristics to create this new layer of “skin” covering the flesh that grows in and out of the human skeletons. The species I studied and the creatures I created share one thing in common—the physical appeal, and the charisma.

In order to reinforce the disguise, the design is contrasted with unremarkable, plain materials. I would like the experience to start from the easiness and openness of the pastel-colored shiny textured resin, then slowly reveal the edge by the skeleton-natureinspired shape, transitioning into the suspicious, judgmental, and questioning side of these creatures and turning the audiences around them. The piece will be presented as a wearable sculpture without any indication of the human form to really emphasize the necessary distance from these creatures while hinting at a splash of inevitable desire and intimacy from other human contact.
