Yimeng Yu extends the standard borders of fashion, pushes the limits of style through technology, and develops surreal paradoxical concepts.Yimeng is a Beijing-based multidisciplinary fashion designer and artist who focuses on the future of fashion and product use. She graduated from the Royal College of Arts and is currently a fashion design director at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, School of Style. After her MA research studies, she stepped into the digital world and currently concentrates on digital style and production, digital style for 3d printing, and virtual world fashion.Her research study typically concentrates on computational style
, parametric style and digital fabrication, wearable technologies, and the fashion business’s future. She checks out digital landscapes, possibilities of innovation use in style, and physical constraints of the material.She uses algorithm design methods, dualities like hardness to softness or darkness to beauty, and utilizing”order” to produce” disorder.”She is presently investigating to bring her virtual style experiences to the physical world, which indicates what you can use digitally and physically in real
life.Yimeng states,”In the digital landscape, there is no physical limitation, so it ends up being a best method of art development. Likewise, digital tool can develop something even beyond people’s creativity since it is based upon algorithms and codes; I delight in the way of exploring in the digital world to find brand-new types, brand-new materials, and brand-new visuals and utilizing my looks and art sense to produce completely brand-new things.”She uses virtual world possibilities to produce great garments and explores mysteries and unnoticeable connections. The macro universe and micro-organisms influence most of her work principles and motivations. She likes to reveal the’hidden’and natural fractal geometries of nature
in her artworks.In her most current collections, she used algorithm-driven design approaches, the mix of ratio and feeling, maker and nature. Likewise, she has actually been developing NFTs and digital collections.Yimeng Yu will lecture at Computational Design: NEXT 12 on December 10-11, 2022.
