{Integrated Design} The Ash

"The Ash" emerged as a distinctive exhibition curated in June 2022, during a period when stringent lockdown measures blanketed mainland China. 

Isolated in her countryside dwelling, Lingyi was compelled to innovate with the materials at hand. Discovering a roll of automotive repair tape, she sliced it into square segments, repurposing these bits as pixels - the fundamental units of an image.  This creative pivot allowed Lingyi to explore and redefine the interplay between raw materials and design principles. What is the true structure of design? What is the essential part of a visual work? Whether limited by the lockdown, Lingyi found her answer.

Ultimately, this inventive approach culminated in a unique graduation showcase within the confines of her home's garage.
