Huanhuan Tan - MA Show
Some people think that the relationship between tradition and modernity are opposites and not compatible and traditional culture has been replaced by modern life. But I think they can coexist, there can be a harmonious relationship. Traditional culture promotes modern life, and modern life influences traditional culture.
The theme of my work is harmony between the traditional and the modern. I use two different ways to design: namely embroidery and a visual diary. They are all in order to highlight my point of view that traditional culture and modern life are compatible. In the first work, I combine the symbols of ancient gods and superhero. In my second work I use the photo of Big Ben, the nickname of the clock in the Palace of Westminster. It is a classic building, but it also a modern clock and time is always moving forward. From my view, I think this conveys harmony.
