This project is a journey of capturing the balanced beauty of things within an imbalanced state.

At the stage of life that we try to learn to be an “adult”, many of us have discovered that there is something we have to “compromise”, or “learn” when dealing with life in a way that we are not used to.
The inspiration comes from the realization of differences and similarities between every individual. Sometimes our personalities or values would be on the two sides of the spectrum, yet we are all seeking for the“balance”- the balance of our inner feelings, the balance of relationships with others, and the balance of how we interact with the society and the environment.The concept is embodied by the development of form, utilizing experimental techniques with fabric and metal. The dichotomy of hardness and softness intermediates, and come to an harmonious state of coexisting.
Just like the full moon, being at its fullness after going through phases.
