project #2 mood board

The modern culture inspired me. In this project. In our society today, there are few sensitive words, for example, LGBT, people of color, homosexual, feminist and sexism. I want to make some connections between human rights with my project. In today’s modern culture, there are some people are against difference, that they think, human should follow “rules,” but being different then what they believe human the should be. A few months ago, I saw a picture online; the image is about a homosexual couple was sitting on the ground, being rinsed by the police with the water gun. Nowadays, these people are still discriminated against in so many other countries in the world. Also, in many countries are gay marriage always not legalize.These people have were treated with violence when they are trying to fight for their rights and being their true self. In this project, I was inspired by the water gun incident, that way I think water is an essential element for my project.
Nowadays, nude swimming is the popular thing around the country, without worry about what others think about them, no matter they are skinny or fat, tall or short, black or white, male or female, everyone is the same. People chose this because they are pursuing the freedom and equality; this is my second inspirations form water. When people took off their clothes, people are not afraid about their identity, expressing their true self, in the water. Water could be violent but also can represent the liberation of themselves.
The fashion designer Iris Van Herpen’s done something similar before, in one of her water haute couture collection; she created a dress with polyester, heat them up, and turn them into water shape. In my project, I want to use polyester to create hats, belts, and necklaces. I think the polyester is a good material to create the water shape.
