(ENGLISH VERSION BELOW ) Le sue creazioni impressionano per la bellezza pura e il senso di meraviglia che suscitano fin dal primo sguardo: i suoi abiti sembrano fatti di aria e di luce, la materia sparisce e rimane solo un senso di sospensione senza tempo.
Come nella collezione “(no) where (now) here”, in cui le fibre si illuminano davanti agli occhi di chi le guarda, o come nel progetto “The show still goes on”, creato in stretta collaborazione con il coreografo William Yong: gli abiti si muovono e si accorciano, interagiscono con i ballerini della compagnia Zata Omm.
Her creations are impressing for the pure beauty and the sense of wonder that inspires at first glance: her clothes seem made of air and light, matter disappears leaving only a sense of timeless suspension.
Ying Gao is an artist who experiments and try to establish new frontiers of the universe of fashion. Through mutations of textile material and sensitive and interactive technology, she creates a time and a space where we can feel a fragile and poetic matter, infused by artificial life that simulates the real one. Her collections are fascinations and visual interaction between art and science.
The designer uses technologically advanced materials and fabrics, such as super organza, a synthetic fabric that holds the record of being the world’s lightest. Her
research also embraces interactivity, explores the autonomous movement of clothes as a reflection of the world around them.
As the collection “(no) where (now) here“, in which the fibers are illuminated by the gaze of the spectators, or as in the project “The show still goes on“, created in close collaboration with the choreographer William Yong: the clothes move and became shorter, interacting with the dancers of the company Zata Omm.
Inspired by the movie by Jacques Tati in 1967, the project “Playtime” is based on the concept of metamorphosis of tactile and visual matter.
The clothes are floating in space becoming undefined and blurred or emit light in response to the flash of cameras.
