Reperceive, to find invisible love

“Hidden love” is an interactive textile installation. it leads the viewer to pull the rope that is connected on the top of the installation and notice the hidden part by themselves.

This project is based on the high-context culture in Asia where people intend not to say what they want to say directly but express through non-verbal action. Many affections sign send from parents are quite cryptic that it’s hard to sense, until when we grow up and look back at what our parents said and did.

They love each other, But they hurt each other.

Focusing on hidden love, this project explores the relationship between parent and youth, showing the interaction of their love and psychological change.
