han feng's exhibit of 'soaring high' was so amazing! she had a couple couture dresses and these really neat bird lanterns. all of it was really sweet and nice to look at. she uses techniques that appear to be traditional of chinese culture including origami style folding of the fabric! this wasn't on display but it is similar. han's website is here.
ma ke is also a fashion designer from china. she had an exhibit called 'wu yeng' (2007). the materials used were not new. she wanted to use something well weathered that shows how humans, nature and time affect one another. the focus was namely on the social responsibility of a fashion designer. her construction was of some kind of traditional chinese robe and it was really neat. i can't find a pic, but it was dope. her website is here.
oooh, one of my favorites was a photographer named maleonn. he did a series of photos called 'days on cotton candy' in his studio that were generally just really creative and neat. in his statement, he notes that his photographs are just what they are. you can look into it further for meaning, but it doesn't actually exist. he gives the viewer exactly what he means his photos to be. his website is here. it is very, very awesome.
honestly, there was so much cool stuff. you need to check it out. it'll be up until january. horay!
today needs to be over with already. i'm not into it today. also, i wish i didn't ride my dang bike in this apocolyptic weather. booooo.
