2022 Graduate Showcase: Cindy Xindi Yao

“The Ant Colony”

Autumn Winter 23

Inspired by Wenji Tang’s “The Ant Colony”, this collection examines the loss of independent thought and privacy in the face of networking technologies, algorithms and synchronised thinking. Using Xu Bing’s “Heaven and Earth”, fabric prints have been developed, combining internet emojis, morse code and Chinese characters to create an unintelligible new language, backed by crystallised selfies and distorted identities. Garments are hooded, wrapped and folded around the body, darted and fused together to create silhouettes for this new future, hidden from the state.
