The Warping Voices

“When are you coming back?” asked grandma in a voice message at Chinese New Year 2022.

“I don’t know,” I said. All I know is that her voice hit me right in my heart. I feel emotional. I feel homesick.

It is incredible how much emotional value human voices can carry. The force of a voice can easily “break” the most rigid shapes.

Voices perfectly represent human complexity, which is the core of my study.

For my degree exhibition, I designed the method The Warping Voices. It is a way of using human voices to warp a 3-dimensional shape into a more complex and fluid new form. I want to add a layer of human complexity to my furniture design. This is my state­ment in opposition to the dominant design language of Minimalism, which tends to “erase” all messiness and complexity. For me, emotional and com­plex are what humans truly are.
