︎ By asking how fiction informs fact and provokes discussion, CROSSPACE Moving and Storage Company shows the emotions and obsession attached to possessions and how possessions and humans redefine each other over time.

︎pillow offers multi-sensations
of calmness and deep breathing.
Breathing is an unusual bodily function.
It is both voluntary and involuntary.
Most of the time,
we breathe unconsciously.
We forget how powerful breathing
can be if we do it mindfully.
Stay awhile with pillow,
you might sense your breaths
becoming calmer
and inadvertently in sync with the artwork.
pillow hopes to bring viewers
back to the pure and simple joy of breathing.

︎Before the invention of timekeeping technology, the concepts of time were based on our understanding of physical space and our memory. In a world with three spatial dimensions plus the linear time perception, humans have learned to use spatial metaphors to think about time.

As the sun moves across the sky, shadows change in direction and length. It did not require a long time for humans to realize the repetitive changing position of sunlight and shadow was a good tool to verify the sense of time. Light and shade build up a predictable context as a most basic clock. It was far from an accurate measurement by today’s standards but precise enough for an agricultural society.


In the past, time was a neurological construct;
time was a product of memory;
time was relative;
time was subjective;
time was the changing of light and shadows...

︎Plycelain - a term coined by the designer combining plywood and porcelain - is a collection of multilayered slip casting drinkware.

Inspired by classic blue and white porcelain, Yuting Chang creates a contemporary version of blue and white ware through applying slip casting, the mass-production technique of ceramics.

Unlike traditional blue and white porcelain, where the decoration is glazed on the surface, Plycelain is built with patterns inside the clay. By adapting the process of slip casting, layers form, and subtle blue lines are exposed on the cut surfaces.

The old spirit of blue-and-white is now embedded inside the clay, transformed into a modern geometric profile. The lines of the layers emphasize the beautiful relationship between assembled parts and highlight its own making process of hand-building.
