Paradox of non-existent existence


Many creations have been derived and developed from the notion of the archetype of existing object. The idea about the archetype of the object has been also a recurring topic explored by many artists. But most archetypes of existingobjects in modern society have been stuck in the concept that is predetermined by the notion of convenience for capitalism and materialism. They have been seen only in their designated perspective. If it is not existed in the way that they were supposed to be and most people expect to see, it can be perceived that it is non-existent as people tend to believe only what they have believed and they alsosee only what they want to see and it shows repulsion against the unfamiliar and new perspective of existing objects unconsciously so people believe that it is notexisted. This paradox can be resolved by the fusion of the unexpected and inexistent aspect of objects and manifests in a resistance against the traditional and existing perspective of objects.We contemplated this paradox to create new beauty of existing object resisting preconceived idea and traditional perspective and, to envision new image of nonexistent objects with deviant perspective of them.And we pursue the imagery into construction of garment and contrast of fabrics to create new beauty giving them a new meaning and freedom of their perception.
