Individual Project| RISD REPAIR: MAKING CONNECTIONS

Found/Made

Let the materials guide you.

| FOUND

Tree barks, rusty hinge, buttons, seashells, leather string......

I found these from the corner of my room, vintage stores, or just from the path I walked through every day.

| MADE

In this project, I tried not to overthink. Instead, I just observed the materials I found with my eyes, felt their texture with my hands. By following their original characteristics, I turned them into wearable art.
