Make Friends with UFOs: Unfinished Objects
Artist: Nolla Yuan
The title of Nolla Yuan's 2011 womenswear collection, Make Friends with UFOs: Unfinished Objects, is inspired by the fact that no philosophical idea is ever completely finished, thus even the finished objects still have infinite possibilities. Yuan dyes silk using colors extracted from a plant, fruit or vegetable and laser cuts lace patterns into leather. She combines this idea of going back to the past to nature with technological advancements by embellishing el wires into the garments, so they glow in the dark.
