《重修旧好》00000-Le Petite Prince小王子

Out of the four categories -衣(wear),食(eat)住(live)行(travel), my task is to create a practical art piece based on衣 "WEAR" item. 
Here's a short brief to share with you,
We have a local indie bookstore as our exhibition platform, which meant I could customize my mending apparel to suit the bookstore theme. Personally, I really love to read classical children books, they are so simple yet impactful. 
classical children book x local essence x waste =? 
Here's my 1st piece, a used garlic net, crochet needle and thread - the most organic way for me to create an art piece. I wasn't sure what I was going to make but I knew it has to be related to a children's book character.
在《重修旧好》的衣,食,住,行四个主题当中, 我选择“衣”为主题。对我来说"衣"包括任何可以穿戴在身上的物品。然后从中再延伸出有实用性的展品。
展览的地点是一个独立的书店。加上我喜欢为每一个项目客制化,所以就索性把经典故事书的主题在“衣”里放大。
经典故事书 x 本土风味 x 废物=? 会是什么样的火花呢?
The more I crochet, the more it started to look like the shape of a snake which reminds me of boa constrictor from Le Petite Prince
在编织的过程,我慢慢看到了令我联想到《小王子》故事里蟒蛇的影子

And then inspiration appeared in the form of a sketch with a local twist, utilising the old elephant mosaic playground.
然后一张与小王子有关的草图crossover本土的小象游乐园诞生了。
and then fine-tuning the draft

Recycled threads were used to stuff into the mini elephant 
把回收的线把小象装的满满的
Tada~
小象好了
Completed the head and the mouth finished with a metal clasp, the eyes of the snake were inked with mini studs 
做好了蛇的头部还有嘴巴的部分,用之前剩下的口金做嘴巴还有小钉子做眼睛的部分
It is only with heart that one can see rightly: What's essential it's invisible to the eye.
“一个人只有用心去看,才能看到事实,事情的真相只用眼睛是看不见的。”
-Antoine de saint exupery
