I am very happy to blog about Transmission Lab Kaleidoscope 2012. It’s been a year of meetings, ideas, discussion and hard work to bring together a successful art exhibition!
The journey wasn’t easy and it gave me lots of worry to say the least, but I’m glad to have been through this experience!
The opening was held on 11 May, 2012, Friday at our mentors’, Phunk new studio at Tanjong Pagar.
Here’s a short write up about the short fashion video I worked on with my collaborators, Gilda Su and Nicole Lee, as well as our profiles:
Teo Jia En + Gilda Su + Nicole Lee
Title: Love & Daydream Medium: Video
This video is inspired by the daydreamers and the artwork aims to bring “fun” back into fashion, to encourage its wearers to experiment and to make a statement with a personal style that is uniquely theirs. Keeping in line with the exhibition’s theme Kaleidoscope, we would like this work to encourage the viewers to be free to express themselves creatively through their dressing.
Apprentice: Teo Jia En (Creative Direction)
Teo Jia En is currently a Fashion Management student in Lasalle. Having cultivated an interest in the arts since young, she continued with art studies for ‘O’ & ‘A’ level and decided to pursue fashion studies. With a deep appreciation of the arts and cultures found in fashion, she aspires to be a leading trend maker in the fashion and luxury industry.
Collaborating artist: Gilda Su (Fashion Designer and Make Up Direction)
Gilda Su was born in Singapore and attended Bunka Fashion College. After graduating with a specialist degree in dress-making, she continued her studies at Parsons the New School of Design in New York City. Gilda is a full-time daydreamer and joyseeker. Her designs reflect her love for color and patternmanipulation, a playfulness that comes with self-confidence and an original personal style.
Collaborating artist: Nicole Lee (Videographer, Lighting, Editing)
A jack of many trades, Nicole Lee aspires to be a master in photography and videography. Nicole’s passion started with music, shooting at concerts and club events. While she has expanded into other aspects of photography, Nicole hopes to continue with this mantra of capturing the essence of moments on image. The journey hasn’t been easy, but she is very grateful for everyone who has helped, inspired and taught her.
