KO/L LABS 

001 SEASON COLLABORATION PROJECT

The KO/L LABS Collaboration project, art directed by me, a collaboration between 2 Chinese traditional artists and 10 international young designers. The idea came during the first wave of the global pandemic, and while being stuck at home I really wanted to connect different cultures through my final project.

Film:

The final film of the project explores different worlds of our current living conditions, from virtual (2D) to the physical (3D), and anything in between. With majority of the world still caged in endless lockdowns, I wanted to explore different possibilities, and pose a question: how can we really find a virtual way to present physical items, or can we really?

Editorial:

Referencing our collaboration artist Shulin Wang’s artwork, KO/L LABS integrates traditional art forms in its Season 001 final imageries. Transforming flat paintings into 3D pop-up books and playing with lights like Chinese shadow plays, we would like to bring traditional art crafts into the younger generations.

Instagram & Graphic animations:

Our KO/L LABS instagram has been a scrapbook of our research and studies. Piled with research of traditional Chinese art crafts, techniques and design philosophies, our instagram page showcase the finest of ‘Made in China,’ and alter the stereotypical perception of the phrase.
