About:

Blurring the boundary between clothing and sculpture, Beibei Li uses draping and digital printing methods to recreate the shapes, forms, colours and patterns she sees and feels during her daily meditation. Through her collection ‘Spirituality’, she aims to guide audiences through the surreal meditative world she experiences through this practice.

The spiritual project is about interpreting my understanding of spirituality through the prints I draw. The phrase 'Spirituality' is associated with -purity, clarity, peacefulness, and transparency. To reflect them. The forms of the patterns are mainly from what I see and feel during my daily meditation practice. In these six sets of outfits, I combined my understanding of Zen in Buddhism into the designs by simulating the traditional method of wrapping the robes around the body to present the unique texture of the draping. By doing experiments with knit jerseys, I found much information from the textures to embody the core concept of purity of meditation. As you can see, larger-sized wooden frames have been created on the upper body that metaphorizes the protective therapeutic rays in a continuous circular motion while I am in meditation and drives the audience to imagine a strange inner world.
