The birth of a new species. Perhaps every time a new generation is born and grows, they form a 'species' that is different from us.


The birth of a new species. Perhaps every time a new generation is born and grows, they form a 'species' that is different from us. I expressed the dizzying journey of those young ones, who grew up benefiting from the older generation, but are seeking their own way, rather than settling with the old way, through intense color and free squeezing. On top of that, I added embroidery to decorate the new footsteps taken to find new paths with own beliefs (meaning out) like an off-beat that pops out. Of course it will require a lot of consideration to know whether the path is really the right , but it is necessary that our journeys be colorful.
새로운 종의 탄생, 어쩌면 새로운 세대가 태어나고 자랄 때마다 우리에게 그들은 '별종'이 되고 만다. 기성세대의 혜택을 받고 자랐지만 그 안에 안주하는 것이 아닌 본인만의 것을 찾아 헤매는 그 날 것의 어지러운 여정을 강렬한 색감과 자유로운 스퀴징으로 표현했다. 그 위에 어리숙하더라도 본인만의 신념을 가지고(meaning out) 어긋난 박자에 튀어나오는 음처럼(off-beat) 새로운 길을 일구는 발걸음을 자수로 꾸몄다. 그 길이 정말로 옳은 길인지는 많은 고민이 필요하겠지만 그 여정 자체는 충분히 다채로울 필요가 있다.


新种的诞生意味着新一代的出现和成长,对于我们而言,他们是“另类”。虽然得到了老一代的照料,但并不安于安逸,而是不停寻找自我的迷茫又混乱的旅程,用强烈的色彩和自由的挤压呈现了出来。即便看似有些呆笨,但坚持自己的信念(meaning out),犹如打错的拍子弹出的音(off-beat),用刺绣呈现开拓新路的脚步。这条路到底是对是错,需要思考再思考,但这旅程的本身已足够精彩。
