Krisitna Shin 「BLOSSOM 」|永續時尚之旅 1

/Artist 藝術家/

Dr Kristina Shin's research consists of 1) creative fashion design and 2) inclusive design. For the former, she shares a story through garments that are aesthetically pleasing and providing the perfect fit. For the latter, she searches for innovative solutions to real world challenges including post-mastectomy product design (i.e., mastectomy bra & prosthesis) for breast cancer survivors, compression garment design for sports performance, and hydrotherapy product design for rehabilitation. Dr Shin enjoys working with experts in other disciplines as they offer ample opportunities to view research questions from new perspectives.

Dr. Kristina Shin的研究包括兩個方面:1)創意時尚設計和2)包容性設計。對於前者,她通過美觀且合身的服裝分享故事。對於後者,她尋找創新解決方案以應對現實世界的挑戰,包括為乳腺癌康復者設計術後產品(如乳房切除術文胸和義乳)、為運動表現設計壓縮服裝,以及為康復設計的水療產品。Dr. Shin喜歡與其他學科的專家合作,因為這提供了從新角度審視研究問題的豐富機會。

Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.
關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

Tradition and future, sustainability and fashion, and life intertwine through history, culture, innovation, creativity, and values. Tradition grounds us in heritage while the future gives us hope in life. We use fashion as a mean to express our nostalgia and fondness towards tradition together with hope for the future in life. In recent years, sustainability bridges between tradition, future, fashion, and life reminding us of our responsibility to steward the planet for generations to come.

傳統與未來、可持續性與時尚,以及生命通過歷史、文化、創新、創意和價值觀交織在一起。傳統使我們紮根於遺產,而未來則給我們生活中的希望。我們使用時尚來表達對傳統的懷舊和喜愛,同時也表達對未來生活的希望。近年來,可持續性在傳統、未來、時尚和生活之間架起了橋樑,提醒我們有責任為後代守護這個星球。

The Concept and Description of the Work
關於參展作品的創作動機與設計理念

This wasinspired by flowerslonging toblossom.The delicate petals, vibrant colors, and graceful movements of flowershave beenendless inspirationfor manyartists.Longing for blossom suggests an innate desire for growth, beauty, and the fulfillment of potential. Like a flower waiting to bloom, it speaks to the anticipation and yearning for transformation and the realization of one's true self. This longing can symbolize hope, patience, and the belief in the eventual unfolding of beauty and purpose. It's a reminder that even in moments of waiting or dormancy, there's an inner drive pushing us towards growth and expression. 

這件作品靈感來自渴望綻放的花朵。花朵的精緻花瓣、鮮豔的色彩和優雅的動作一直是許多藝術家的無盡靈感源泉。渴望綻放象徵著對成長、美麗和實現潛力的內在渴望。就像等待綻放的花朵,它表達了對變化和實現自我的期待和嚮往。這種渴望可以象徵希望、耐心以及對最終展現美麗和目的的信念。它提醒我們,即使在等待或沉寂的時刻,也有一股內在的動力推動我們向成長和表達邁進。
