主題:從前從前,有一杯茶 Once upon a time , there was a cup of tea

以「聊齋誌異」為靈感發想,作者蒲松齡以茶換取各地路人的奇幻故事,而我選擇裡面其中幾個較廣為人知的故事作為重要發想,用毛線編織及印花呈現妖狐鬼怪與人類一段段相互糾纏的因緣回報。印花的內容主要是部分故事情節或是象徵性的元素,而多彩的毛線則是代表各個角色互相交織的命運。

Inspired by traditional Chinese literature “Strange Tales Of Liaozhai”, the author used cups of tea in exchange of fantasy stories from different travelers. I used yarn weaving and pattern to show the karma, love, friendship, emotions… between human and strange creatures like ghosts ,monsters or floral fairy. The patterns on the clothes are inspired by symbolic items of the stories or the plots. As for the yarn weaving, it illustrate the tangled destinies of the characters.
