inspiration | ma ke wu yong

Ma Ke's 2007 collection, pictured below, is entitled wu yong which translates to "useless." Asked about the title she responds, "Does today's usefulness correspond to the values of tomorrow? I want to create things, which though they may appear useless today, are the bearers of values for the future....I hope people will free themselves of the opposition between the useful and the useless in order to find out about the object of their desire."

In creating the collection she worked exclusively with hand-loomed textiles, burying them in the ground at times.

The top five images are taken by amazing photographer Zhou Mi. Check out his website, his work is amazing.

Love this! Hope you do too...
