The Forbidden Eden

* The project was exhibited in Ars Electronica 2020

Designed by
Feiyang Zhang (the Royal College of Art,MA Textiles)

Living in the dystopian world, there are less things that could allow us to breathe underneath the non stopping pressure. In order to find herself a place to escape from the reality world, Feiyang created her own garden of eden. Inspired by the forms of jellyfishes and how their organisms work together, Feiyang used the techniques of soft robotics and computing through Infinite Toolkit to achieve the level of breathing, softness and interaction. This project reflects a serious underlying problem hidden inside people living in the present society. Without expressing our inner feelings, we have accumulated so much pressure so we could hardly breathe. As a storyteller, Feiyang wishes to portray this phenomenon through her imaginary world.
