As we are now facing the most challenging living environments, the epidemic changes the way of our life.  Not only have I encountered a precipitous drop in studio usage time, but also the pressure of working alone from home. 

Zoom rooms are the new abstract form of garments for me. I have been getting used to the online conversations in the past few months. However, at the same time, I’m feeling more contradiction with real social life. All of these things have made me feel unsure and helpless when it comes to this project. After countless hours of self-convincing, I have decided to turn this disorientation into a source of inspiration for the project.

The constant twisting of the pipeline was also a sign of self-relieving. Whether the spiral expands outwards or tightens inwards, it is a form of self-protection.
