As You Were Here
Pan I-an (Taiwan)
The artist’s mom is a knitting expert who used to hand knit clothes for the artist when she was little. She is also a traditional mom who worries and nags a lot. In this work, the artist transforms the words her mom used to nag into wearable e-textiles. The wearer can feel the warmth and everlasting love of a mother around. The repetitive behaviors of the work are electronically controlled to imply how imprinted words affect our living.
