PERSONA from taibei-based designer JEFFERY WANG
Taiwanese designer Jeffery Wang was graduated from the Parsons School of Design. In his work “Persona”, he used Levi’s jeans to re-create a series of “sculpture”, while maintaining the integrity of the jeans.
He stated the work as : “The main purpose of this project PERSONA was to use recycled denim jeans and create art pieces from it. In creating this project I think it was very important that we kept the “raw” personality of denim jeans and applying it like a sculpture so there was no cutting, sewing or any use of fashion technical skills. The only thing used to hold the jeans together were safety pins. In staying true to the shape and personality of denim jeans, even if we took it apart all the jeans still hold it’s original shape and can still be worn, a true recyclable project.”
