Shuming is a maker and dreamer. Through her work, she attempts to combine humans’ daily life with the science technology in the future. She enlarge the phenomenon and issues happened around us, to investigate what may happen in the future and the effect of modern technology caused on people.
Shuming’s graduate collection, ‘Monitoring in the dark’ is a collection of work inspired by humans’ lack of freedom in today’s society, due to increasing surveillance equipment. People cannot guarantee whether their privacy be protected. This has resulted a series of functional eyes pieces which give viewers and wearers a special visual effect.
Within each piece, latex fabric layers have been cut by using laser cutting and laid all the layers together to build depth, which simulated the compound eyes of insects. Creative pattern and texture were engraved on metal which also contain the retro-futurism elements in each piece. The collection will consist of brooches, hand pieces and glasses.
