Project Hi i
"Project Hi" is a collection of jewelry related to social anxiety based on my personal experience. The pieces are made with resin, my blood and sterling silver. The title is inspired by the most common greeting word Hi - which was hard for me to say before. The concept of the series is to speak out how people can defeat the anxiety and be confident.
"When I saw others are always in groups, I felt alone but don't know what to do with that... People are getting better with others' helps while I am the only one that left behind." The dot that one the small side is represents me in the past, who is afraid of talking with others and joining group discussion, I only enjoy the time with myself, but others are saying "you have to work in groups to success".
After a period of time changing myself, I found that it's actually not a bad thing of being introverts! People like being alone is able to think independently, being more focused, insightful and creative. In the society that emphasizes cooperation, it is true for introvert people to be difficult to get recognition. But it doesn't mean anything wrong, but instead maybe it's a shortcut leading to success. In the piece the arc of the circles are shorter on the alone side - which means it maybe an easier way to work well by oneself.
