ccyeh, based in Taiwan, all project created by hands. A conceptual art form of clothing with emphasizing the value of hidden beauty. Core of the creation for both contemporary aesthetic and natural dyeing with impermanence attitude to recapture the spirit and quality of imperfection philosophy. Accept the flow of the body, the essential nature between bodies and garment itself. The aim is to encourage longevity through changing the beauty standard that incorporates imperfection as philosophy.
ccyeh is full dedicated into natural dyes, as being part of her inspirations. All dyeing materials and textiles are through her hands. She utilized the dry flowers and steam-dying skill to create the prints as one method for designs, the unpredictable stains and flaws might be shown on her works, still, she wants to point out this natural uniqueness, and elevate the flaws to accept the natural consquence.
ccyeh talks about the imperfection philosophy, compared to the western preference for perfection, symmetry
and finality, the eastern culture is more appreciates the uncontrolled nature and focuses on the humble reality, the impermanence of life. ‘imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete’, it is what makes things unique and special, as ccyeh uses the term ‘potential beauty’ to claim that beauty lies in the realization of this imperfection as desirable.
The social media delayering the diffusion of aesthetic between the shifters and the receivers. Thus, to change the beauty standards, independent thought is needed. If popular aesthetics bring people the idea of perfection, can imperfection be elevated through breaking the popular patterns ?
In today’s society, mass production and consumption have caused lots of issues, and consumption lower the emotional value in products which leads to wasted consumption culture. However, awareness of the need for change has been awakened, sustainable fashion is a green concept that is going to affect consumer’s behavior to furthermore support the change of creative process and design thinking as long-lasting garments are needed both today and in the future. As a result, ccyeh be called upon to bridge the gap between idea and practice, to link artistic and creative elements with practical and realizable outcomes.
