Description

Inspired by the different perspectives toward the body in the Eastern and Western cultures, this design project focused on the development of innovative design principles in order to represent the concept of 'oneness,' derived from the harmonious union of yin and yang, an ancient underlying philosophy and practice that is still imprinted in every facet of the Eastern culture. The designs of Oneness captured the complementary relationship between contrary elements (e.g., earth-sky, darkness- light, body-mind, female-male) and the dynamics generated from their infinite interaction. Through the marriage of two completely different forms, symmetrical balance was achieved within asymmetry. Continuous strips that wrap around the body represent interdependence between the elements and their connection within the universe. Oneness invites the audience to acknowledge and appreciate the beauty of cultures--their own and others, as well as to celebrate the rediscovery of cultural heritage as an inspiration for creators in all fields.
