during DESIGNART tokyo 2019, taiwanese creative chialing chang has presented a solo exhibition of work that reflects her interest in nature, and recent experimentation with organic materials. the exhibit, titled ‘nature as metaphor’, gathers the artist’s investigations into the dichotomy between hard
ness and softness, dullness and tension, and precision and chance. with a formal education in industrial design, chang’s objective is to act as a bridge between material-related studies and objects with functional and aesthetic features. adopting precise design approaches and diverse material types, her works seek to draw upon the essence of nature itself and the potential landscapes which can result from them.
