"Human's skeleton muscle has been changed by labor and living environment over millennium, human's skull, spine, arms and legs are all have been constantly evolved to adapt to the environment.
Nowadays, with the development of science and technology, the traits of high technology such as low consumption, convenient and efficient has gradually replaced the original labor. The huge change with environment will affect the further evolution of the human body, the structure of human skeleton and muscle will have a great change.
Though my own visual development, I approached a feeling of degeneration of human skeleton and muscle. Exploring the physical manifestation of human body, I propose to create a range of conceptually developed artefacts pieces with a human body aesthetic. The range will act as a admonition, preserving the ideas, exploring different human body shape in the future, at the same time showcasing them in a fashion context."
